Conveniently located within 25 minutes away from Tampa, the River Hills Country Club is one of the most sophisticated gated golf communities for upper-class families and individuals in Valrico, Florida. This golf course and waterfront neighborhood have a lot to offer to prospective golf homebuyers looking for a luxurious, family-friendly Hillsborough County community.
River Hills is a deed-restricted, multi-village, controlled access community with approximately 1,160 single-family golf homes. The eastern side of the neighborhood is bordered by an Environmental Lands Acquisition and Protection Program (ELAPP), which aims to conserve natural surroundings and protect wildlife within River Hills. Almost the entire community features towering trees, rich greenery, and nearby ponds that are home to many different types of animals.
A truly breathtaking community for all, the River Hills Country Club has a rich history that goes back to 1988. Throughout the years, the neighborhood has been well-served and well-maintained by the Homeowners’ Association which provides the community’s residents with a low-maintenance lifestyle. The golf homes themselves are attractive to many buyers due to their larger than average size, ranging from 1,300 square feet to more than 7,000 square feet of living space. Featured in most of these golf residences are two to five-bedroom and two to six-bathroom floor plans, plus expansive space for at least two to four cars in the garages.
Inside most golf homes, residents are welcomed with spacious open concept floor plans that maximize every available space to achieve a premier set of rooms. Whether looking for a modern kitchen with custom-designed countertops, rooms with high ceilings, or master suites with large windows, the River Hills Country Club has almost everything a potential buyer might look for in a home. When it comes to pricing, a single-family golf home costs no less than $200,000 while the golf estate-type residences are priced up to $1 million plus.
As a private country club, River Hills ensures that residents are offered an active lifestyle within the gates of the community by providing them with endless amenities. Besides the Joe Lee designed 18-hole golf course in the center of the neighborhood, residents and their guests enjoy a superb set of golf practice facilities, lighted Har-Tru clay tennis courts, a 24-hour fitness center complete with the newest gym equipment, and a heated 25-meter swimming pool with a patio that gives a beautiful panoramic view of the lush scenery of the community. For dining options, River Hills has one of Valrico’s best spots for dining as the gorgeous clubhouse’s on-site restaurant, the Sawgrass Grill, serves almost every cuisine imaginable.
Residents will always find something to do within the gates of River Hills as the community also provides a full social calendar of events for all ages. For its youngsters, the neighborhood offers year-round junior golf and tennis programs, swim lessons, and a variety of activities and camps.
