Rivetta Homes for Sale – Sarasota, Florida 34231

Rivetta Homes for Sale

Rivetta on Phillippi Creek is a community offering upmarket Sarasota homes for sale in a coveted location just about a mile east of the junction of Proctor Road and the South Tamiami Trail. Developed starting in 2016, this community spreads in a cozy creekside parcel north across from Riverview High.

Phillippi Creek, the template which Rivetta has been woven with, is notably one of Sarasota’s landmarks, being amongst the largest coastal streams within the area. From its upper reaches west in the sawgrass marshes near the historic Fruitville district, this creek flows south to intersect with Roberts Bay and Little Sarasota Bay.

Strokes of a Master Builder

The creekside site of Rivetta is a perfect canvas for its general contractor and exclusive builder—the award-winning Lee Wetherington Homes. Based in Lakewood Ranch, this builder boasts of over 40 years of industry experience seen in the over 4,000 homes it has constructed in some of the major residential communities not only in Sarasota but also in Manatee County.

Lee Wetherington set just nine home sites at the Rivetta, each with a deeded boat slip. This luxury home builder again put forward in this community the expertise which extended to it the title “Best Builder” from Sarasota Herald Tribune readers for eight consecutive years and the award as America’s Best Builder from Builder Magazine and the National Association of Home Builders.

Home Designs that Win

Rivetta Homes for Sale

The first Rivetta home model that Lee Wetherington built won four awards in the 2016 annual builders’ showcase, Sarasota Manatee Parade of Homes. Called Stillwater, this home design is a two-story Coastal Contemporary rendition featuring a floor plan of about 3,400 square feet with three bedrooms. Its open floor plan, panoramic veranda and a studio overlooking Phillippi Creek convey the elements trademark to luxury waterfront Sarasota homes for sale.

Lee Wetherington’s Stillwater design in Rivetta fetched a market price of about $1.4 million. The price quote eases to $1.15 million for a Rivetta floor plan for a one-story residence set with a floor space of slightly under 3,000 square feet featuring three bedrooms and three baths.

Also within this exclusive neighborhood with an impressive, lush landscaping is a 5,743-square-foot Lee Wetherington masterpiece that was sold within six days of its listing in the MLS of Sarasota homes for sale. Designed with five bedrooms, five baths and a half-bath, it carried a tag price of $2.2 million.

Exciting and Convenient Setting

Rivetta Homes for Sale

Rivetta homeowners who’ve tied their lifestyle with water-based recreational activities have plenty of exciting local destinations to cover. A kayak or canoe trip upstream on Philippine Creek would provide an encounter with water birds and bald eagles inhabiting the stream’s forest preserve. Downstream towards Roberts Bay, the excitement shifts to dockside dining attractions such as the seafood restaurant Philippi Creek Oyster Bar and the high-end Creekside. Likewise within easy boating or driving distance are the points of interest on Siesta Key.

As convenient, The Landings, an upscale commercial center anchored on a Publix supermarket, is walking distance from the Rivetta community. The delights of downtown Sarasota are likewise within the sphere of the Rivetta residents, with the nearby Tamiami Trail enabling quick transit to the city center.
