Making every moment count is what life is all about. At North River Ranch, we’ve created a dynamic and active community where you can do that easily every single day. Our hometown living philosophy is brought to life in so many ways here.

Part of making you at home is giving you a fantastic choice of neighborhoods and acclaimed, quality home builders.

At North River Ranch, we have six new homebuilders – KB Home, Pulte, Park Square Homes, Homes by WestBay, David Weekley Homes, and townhomes from Neal Communities – with model homes open daily. No matter if you’re a first-time buyer, rightsizing enthusiast, or a seasoned pro, we’ve got a variety of incredible new homes for sale in Parrish, Florida, and price ranges to help you create new memories soon. Inside each home, you’ll find highly functional floor plans with designer finishes. The advantages of new construction are hard to deny or resist! Go ahead and treat yourself to quality workmanship, more mindful building methods, and contemporary features created for today’s lifestyles.

Feeling at home is also about enjoying the community itself. We’ve got the beautiful Florida climate, which means we can explore the outdoors every day of the week. North River Ranch has been designed as an ultra-walkable and bikeable neighborhood that caters to the fun of outdoor living. Treat yourself to a healthier lifestyle that’s easier to maintain. There are plenty of places outdoors to enjoy a workout here, including a walk along the Greenway (and the future trails and nature paths), a ride on one of the community’s free Bike Share bikes, a refreshing swim in the resort-inspired pool at the Brightwood Pavilion or the Riverfield Verandah, or a session at one of the Avid FitPods and FitStations. Or opt for a more traditional workout in our modern fitness center. It’s easy to treat yourself to a healthier life at North River Ranch, with so many amenities and opportunities. No more driving to the gym and waiting for equipment. Here you’ll have plenty of exercise options that are convenient and just steps from your door.
