The history of residential development in Sarasota County has been written by colorful characters. John Ringling, for example, was a circus magnate whose real estate ambitions transformed the Sarasota Keys and its downtown district. Bertha Palmer was a socialite turned real estate investor responsible for the zoning of Palmer Ranch. Piero Rivolta is a writer, poet, and sailboat designer who comes from a family of Italian automakers; some of his previous residential projects include Longwood Run and The Oaks, and we can now add Rivo Lakes in Sarasota to the list.
Construction of Rivo Lakes started in 2018 under the leadership of award-winning builder M/I Homes. The first two models were completed in 2020, and there are plans to deliver at least a dozen more in 2021. Rivo Lakes stands out for various reasons, and one of the most notable is that it is Sarasota’s first Conservation Subdivision, which is why half of this large community has been set aside as a nature preserve for the enjoyment of wildlife and residents alike.
Rivo Lakes is located southeast of the intersection between I-75 and Clark Road just south of Twin Lakes Park, which means that you can visit the white sandy beaches of Siesta Key in less than 30 minutes. You can see that Rivo Lakes is destined to be a premier Sarasota neighborhood from the moment you arrive at the front gate; everything from the homes to the lakes and conservation space looks stylish and meticulous. The architectural style is an ornate interpretation of Tuscan design, and each home is packed with extras such as natural stone countertops, double sinks in the bathrooms, decorative exterior finishing, designer cabinets, premium laminate flooring, and many others.
This community is for home buyers who can appreciate quality construction and spacious floor plans. The Crystal home model, for example, offers five bedrooms and four full bathrooms built on more than 3,119 square feet of living space; this is an ideal living solution for extended families, and it was listed at $749K in November 2020. The more luxurious Reflection floor plan is a two-level home with four bedrooms and four bathrooms plus a large den built on 3,861 square feet of interior. These properties will likely fetch million dollar price tags in the near future.
Rivo Lakes is strategically located close to Livingston’s Amusement Center, Twin Lakes Park, Rothenbach Park, and the Bee Ridge Square shopping district offering a Walmart Supercenter, Home Depot, Walgreens, and Publix supermarket.
