When talking about waterfront living in Manatee County, most people think about Anna Maria Island and the southern banks of the Manatee River in Bradenton, but this largely ignores the Palmetto riverfront, which is where you can find the Riviera Dunes subdivision. Riviera Dunes in Palmetto is a residential community as well as a marina with a couple of commercial zoning concessions set up for the convenience of residents.
You can find everything from condos to single-family residences and from small villas to impressive waterfront estates in the 288 acres that comprise Riviera Dunes, which is probably the most prestigious address worthy of boasting in Palmetto. Strategically located along the foot of the South Tamiami Trail bridge, Riviera Dunes counts the Bradenton Area Convention Center and the Palmetto Estuary Nature Preserve as neighbors. Living here means being able to drive across the Manatee River to reach Downtown Bradenton in just five minutes; it also means being 10 minutes away from the Ellenton Premium Outlets, 20 minutes from Holmes Beach, and a short walk away from the Palmetto Historic District.
If you are interested in making Riviera Dunes a permanent home or a long-term investment, you should know that the last remaining home site was listed in late 2019 for less than $435K; we are talking about a quarter-acre waterfront lot that offers great views of the river, right next to the marina. Two-bedroom condos in the only high-rise towers of Palmetto start around $250K, and a three-bedroom home in a gated community along the water starts at $315K.
Boating and fishing enthusiasts cannot pass up the opportunity of living in Riviera Dunes. Some of the most attractive properties offer private docking space and small piers, and there is also the marina to consider. This is one of the best spots in Manatee County to launch a boat or kayak, and there is the added convenience of being just six minutes away from the remodeled Publix supermarket in Palmetto. Home buyers interested in golf have various options within a 15-minute drive: Terra Ceia, River Run, and Buffalo Creek.
