The Secret Benefits of Living on the Water

Rivella on the St. Lucie

Posted on: December 13, 2018

Living on the water gives you more than just a beautiful home. Find out more about the holistic, physical and financial benefits.

Waterfront living is always in high demand for homebuyers. After all, who doesn’t enjoy stunning views, wildlife, kayaking through mangrove trails or even just a relaxing walk by the water? Who wouldn’t want to be close to its holistic and restorative energies, and have the dramatic imagery of a truly beautiful, truly wild area right behind their home? Everyone has their reason for living near the water. Our friends at realtytimes.com outlined a few of the benefits – which one suits you the best?

Stunning Views

Whether it’s a beach, lake, or river, waterfront areas tend to have a diversity of plant and animal species that help make up dramatic landscapes. The result is a jaw dropping display of wildlife such as otters and egrets and breathtaking sunsets right in your backyard. Watching the water run up to the shore or flow by is a sight that will instill a sense of calm in you. Throw in Florida’s year round great weather and you have a slice of paradise in your backyard.

Feel Better!

Science has lauded the value of being near the water since the dawn of time. It’s shown that those who live near the water report feeling happier and healthier. Water can be very therapeutic. Engaging in simple activities such as fishing or walking can help reduce stress. Research has shown that our body and mind tend to have a personal and emotional relationship with water, also known as “Blue Mind” effect. It’s a state when our body and soul feel more relaxed when near water.

It Pays Forward

Many are drawn to waterfront living, for more than just its views and health benefits. Because of its high demand and limited supply, waterfront homes retain a higher value as they age than inland homes. Many people are vying to live near the water, which is why homeowners can see the financial benefits waterfront living can bring.

A Natural Perspective

Those who are looking for calmer activities can enjoy fishing and hiking, which grants the added bonus of finding local wildlife and plants that populate the area. The natural landscape is perfect for meditating, creating art, or rejuvenating the soul, as well. Adrenaline junkies will love the opportunities that the waterfront offers, including jet skiing, offshore fishing, swimming, and even paddle boarding!

If you are thinking about making a move to a waterfront community, there are not many options left for a new construction home. One hidden gem you may want to check out is Rivella, coming soon to the Treasure Coast. This gated community by GroundStone Incorporated rests on the edge of the St Lucie River where it meets the North Fork. Only twenty minutes from Jupiter and five minutes from the oceanfront, residents have easy access to all of the activities that come along with waterfront living, such as kayaking, fishing, and paddleboarding – not to mention some stunning views. Community amenities include a pool and clubhouse, tennis, and walking trails meandering throughout the neighborhood, so residents can connect with nature. Your new home will be ideally located just a short drive to some of the area’s best golf, beaches and entertainment as well as dozens of historic sites, parks and museums where you’ll learn about the area’s rich history.

Homes at Rivella will range in size from 2 to 6 bedrooms, and all homes will have either a preserve or estuary view. Select home sites are available directly on the river, some with an option for a private dock. Signature series homes start in the mid $300s, and Estate homes are priced from the mid $500s to over $1 million, with custom floor plan options. Residents can also enjoy the Clubhouse, complete with a pool, tennis courts, and trails that wind throughout the neighborhood.
