Riviera Dunes has something for every home buyer: high-rise condos, townhouses, villas, single-family residences, and impressive waterfront estates. If you are interested in the latter, the Island at Riviera Dunes in Palmetto is an exclusive neighborhood that you should prioritize on your house-hunting list.
Of all the neighborhoods in Riviera Dunes, the Island offers the best waterfront views of the Manatee River, for this is the southern edge of the district, and is it an actual island accessible only by boat or by the Riviera Dunes Way bridge on the west. There are only about 50 properties on the Island, and all of them feature waterfront views; the south side faces the Manatee River while the northern shore looks onto the Riviera Dunes Marina boat basin. As can be imagined, the southern end of the Island with its sweeping views of the river is where the most opulent estates are located, and prices start at a million dollars.
Compared to other boating communities in Southwest Florida, the Island has an advantage in the sense that you can get a lot more for less; for example, a three-bedroom home facing the marina with three full bathrooms, a private deepwater dock, and a swimming pool complete with a summer kitchen was priced at $850K in late 2019. This is a custom design built by John Cannon Homes, and it offers extras such as a spa, a built-in espresso maker, granite countertops, cathedral ceilings, a home office, a walk-in pantry, and more.
Since the Island is right next door to the Riviera Dunes marina, residents and their guests can walk over to the Dockside Bar & Grill to enjoy the sunsets. Homeowners can get discounted memberships at the yacht club for access to the gym, tennis courts, and resort-style swimming pool. The Island feels secluded, but it is actually just minutes away from the Palmetto Historic District, Publix, and a Walmart Supercenter. Driving to Downtown Bradenton will take you five minutes, and you can make it to Holmes Beach in about 25 minutes.
