The River Area

Overview

The River Area on Marco Island is characterized by its large, water-direct lots and sizable houses and a just a few waterfront condos. Running the entire eastern side of the island, along the Marco River, boaters don't have to worry about negotiating low bridges on their short trip to the Gulf. The homes tend to be larger than average and a mix of old and new. Often, older homes are replaced with new since the lots are so valuable in the River Area. If you need "big," go with The River Area.

River Area Real Estate

The Marco river is the body of water that separates Marco Island form the mainland.  This beautiful river is the backdrop for some of the most stunning architecture on the island.  The boundaries of the River area basically extend from the Old Marco area all the way down the east side of the island to San Marco Road.  From the beginning of development on Marco, this area has been one of the most attractive for its natural beauty and quick acces to the Gulf of Mexico.

The homes of the River area are generally a little bigger and a little grander than the average home on Marco Island and many are absolute masterpieces of residential construction.  Of course, all of this fine workmanship is easily upstaged by the serene Manatees and playful Dolphins that go by every day.

As you learn more about Marco Island, you'll probably find that the River Area is one of your favorite parts of the island.  Located just east of Barfield Road, residents have quick and easy access to shopping and dining and can be off the island in a matter of minutes.  The River area is diverse and even though real estate in the area can easily top a million dollars, there are great buys for much less as well.

There has never been a better time to buy in the River Area of Marco Island.  Property values have rebounded since the global recession, but owning a piece of paradise still very sensible. The opportunity to make great gains going forward is still very good.  Feel free to contact us for more information using the form below.

 

Boating and Fishing From The River Area

River area properties are often chosen for more than their aesthetic beauty and tranquil streets. All of the waterfront homes here are on what are called "water-direct" lots. There are no low bridges that would limit the size of your boat or the height of your mast. Because you can be in the Marco River immediately and the Gulf fairly quickly, the River Area makes a great choice for sailors and fisherman.

In fact, fishing enthusiast can't do much better than the River Area. Amazing backwater fishing is literally around the corner. Endless mangrove-lined waterways offer up the best fishing in Southwest Florida.

There's deep water here, too. If your yacht is enormous and has a large draft, some lots here are suitable.

 

Five Things to Know

  1. The River Area boundaries include basically everything east of Barfield Drive, north of Winterberry Drive. Plus the east side of Bald Eagle Dirve, north of the Barfield intersection.
  2. Most people think there aren't any condos in the River Area. Pier 81, Angler's Cove and Riverside are in the River Area, not Old Marco.
  3. While there is no beach in the River Area, owners have access to Residents' Beach.
  4. This side of the island, between Collier and Winterberry, has no tourist attractions, so it's not so busy in season.
  5. Lots are bigger than the standard 80'x100' Marco Island Lots. Most are 100'x110".
