Riverview has become a highly desirable area for new residents in the Tampa area. Close enough to Tampa to make an easy commute, but far enough away to enjoy nature preserves and suburban living. This growing town has several new neighborhoods including The Reserve at South Fork. If you are looking for new homes in Riverview, find out if The Reserve at South Fork is for you.
Living in Riverview, Florida
Riverview lies just southeast of the center of Hillsborough County with the Alafia River making up its northeastern border. It’s less than a half-hour drive away from Tampa and there is plenty of access to major routes that lead to Florida attractions and beaches. Although the town has grown rapidly, it still maintains its small-town charm and has a wealth of nature within and around its borders. Riverview was originally founded 1885 on the north shore of the Alafia River, but it wasn’t until the 1940’s (when a post office was built) that it really became a known place. Early settlers worked in the phosphate mine or on the large poultry farm, but today, Riverview is a bedroom community in the suburbs of Tampa. With its top-rated schools, proximity to shopping and dining, and abundance of leisure activities nearby, this community is a favorite residence for growing families.
The Reserve at South Fork
Of the many new neighborhoods in Riverview, The Reserve at South Fork is one of the most attractive addresses. This gated enclave contains just over 100 homes and it is nestled between two lakes and flanked by a nature preserve. Many of the residents in The Reserve enjoy water or wooded views and lush landscaping abounds. The main community of South Fork offers several green parks and top-end amenities such as a resort-style pool, sports courts and walking paths that run throughout. New homes constructed by a local Tampa builder, Homes by WestBay, start in the low $300,000 range and crest at $600,000. These homes include some of their most popular and highly awarded models which include the Biscayne, Verona and Granada homes (among others). Two model homes are open daily and the sales office is located within the Capri model at 13845 Moonstone Canyon Dr. Riverview, FL 33579.
Resident Perks at The Reserve at South Fork
Homeowners at The Reserve at South Fork have all the modern conveniences located close by the community. There are ample shopping opportunities with a selection of grocers and top retailers within a close radius. Both fine and casual dining options are numerous and all necessary services such as urgent care, pet care, doctors and dentists have offices around town. One of the main reasons (outside the great schools) that bring families to Riverview are the recreational opportunities. Fish or kayak on the Alafia River, or hike and picnic in the 597-acre Bell Creek Nature Preserve. There are many other nature preserves located within a short drive of The Reserve and Apollo Beach is close by. Kids especially enjoy the manatee viewing area in Apollo Beach at the Big Bend Power Station. Plus, there are several theme parks in the area with Busch Gardens in Tampa and Disney/Universal in Orlando. No matter what you enjoy, Riverview has it and The Reserve at South Fork puts you in the ideal location.
