Riverfield is located closest to the community’s Market Walk anchored by Publix, schools, and the future wellness-oriented village center. The walkable neighborhood features access-controlled gates and a mix of single-family and townhomes. While residents can enjoy all of the extensive current and future amenities offered at North River Ranch, the neighborhood features the Riverfield Verandah – an amenity with a pool, community lounge room, and nearby outdoor Avid FitStations. Plus, connection to North River Ranch’s community trail system allows for walking, running, or biking throughout the community. David Weekley Homes continues to build single-family homes in the neighborhood while Neal Communities nears the sellout of 150 townhomes.

“Riverfield offers residents the distinctive opportunity of having everything you might need within walking distance from your home,” said John A. Neal, president of Neal Land & Neighborhoods. “Along with a new high school and elementary school, the future State College of Florida campus will be at walking distance from Riverfield. Of course, the added convenience to Market Walk and the several upcoming developments here will further enable the active living and healthy lifestyle that North River Ranch is designed to offer all its residents.”

Recently celebrating its 50-year milestone, Cardel Homes has built over 20,000 homes in 150 communities across North America. They work closely with home buyers to ensure customization and the highest standard of customer service, from letting customers select their homesites to a design team helping customers personalize each home.

“It’s important to us that our partners know the local market and geography,” adds Neal. “Cardel Homes has established a solid reputation in the region. They also share our commitment to quality and community, and we strongly feel that the home builder will bring a unique value to the North River Ranch community.”
