1106 3rd Street East, Palmetto, FL 34221

Rivera DunesRiviera Dunes is a highly sought-after community located directly on the Manatee River with its own protected deep-water harbor making this a premier boating community. This exclusive community offers gated security, a magnificent Marina, a waterfront restaurant Blu Mangrove (known for great ambiance, delicious cocktails, and equally impressive steak and seafood offerings), convenient distance to downtown and airports, and resort style amenities which include the clubhouse, a community pool and spa, fitness center, tennis courts and more. All this is just the beginning as the best part of this package is the gorgeous home that is maintenance free. That’s right, you heard correctly. Living in this community allows you to focus on living your life without the concern of mowing your lawn and other normal upkeep.

This gorgeous Northshore at Riviera Dunes pool home offers three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a large two car garage and 2,078 square feet under air. This home was built strong and beautiful with a Mediterranean influence evident in this home’s curb appeal. Another great perk to this home, that is often overlooked, is the available natural gas utility offered throughout this community. A terrific energy saving option that not everyone has.

Entering this home, the foyer has a grand robust feeling and it certainly highlights the soaring twelve-foot ceilings. Throughout this home you will find a ton of extras like crown molding, upgraded fixtures, large windows maximizing natural light and great site lines as well as architectural details abound that will surely wow you.

The kitchen is fantastic, offering its owners pantry storage, stainless steel appliances, and solid wood cabinetry topped with gorgeous natural stone. A center island provides ample counter space for food prep or entertaining, a double sink and a cleverly disguised dishwasher behind a custom matching cabinet door. The highlight of this kitchen is no doubt the added light allowed by the over cabinet transom windows and a unique addition of glass block set into the backsplash flanking the cooktop. What a great addition of form and function. From the kitchen you will enjoy those great site lines with a view of the pool and the water beyond.

Sharing this open space is the main living area and an eat-in dining area. You can enjoy the fantastic views from just about anywhere in this home. This Banyan floor plan is a superb open concept with a split bedroom layout. The bedrooms are all carpeted and bedrooms 2 and 3 offer ceiling fans and ample space to accommodate your favorite furniture. This floor plan allows the master suite to feel like a private sanctuary. Located just off the living room, the master suite was also designed to maximize natural light and take advantage of the beautiful lake views via a large window wall. The addition of plantation shutters also allows you to block that light when you want. This bedroom has everything you need including tons of storage with its dual closets. A master bathroom that you may never want to leave. This generous private bath has a light, bright and clean feeling. Dual sinks, a large garden tub for soaking, a separate walk-in shower, a private water-closet, and a lowered vanity section for seated primping.

The lanai is complete with a heated saltwater pool and spa. The perfect spot to relax and enjoy your loved ones or perhaps a little peaceful tranquility for yourself. This favored outdoor space offers a large covered section under a cooling fan for those who prefer shade and plenty of room for your lounger under the sun for those who prefer the rays. The pool has a fantastic “little beach” shelf with vertical jets which add ambiance with the calming sounds of water. The lake views are unbeatable whether you are in the pool or out on the deck. This space is sure to be your favorite too.
