Rio Vista Real Estate
Homes For Sale in Premier Florida Luxurious Estate Waterfront Properties Neighborhood
Spanish for “River View,” the neighborhood of Rio Vista is an affluent, upscale residential community just across New River from Downtown Fort Lauderdale, with the ultra-exclusive Rio Vista Isles stretching eastward to the Intracoastal Waterway.
Featuring lush tree-lined streets, sidewalks, and a wide variety of architecture, from stucco cottages to spectacular waterfront estates and Mediterranean mansions, Rio Vista is one of the city’s oldest, most historic neighborhoods, dating back to the 1920s when Fort Lauderdale first began to transform from an agricultural trading outpost into a world-renowned resort destination. Mary Brickell, wife of the famous William Brickell, one of the founding fathers of Miami and South Florida, recorded the area’s first plat. The land was purchased after her death by C.J. Hector, who began to develop the neighborhood, calling it “River View.”
