Much-anticipated expanded amenities at Riviera Bella are here.
The highlight of the amenities unveiled this month is a $400,000 children’s interactive water play area. Freeport Fountains of Sanford created the water park, where children can play in gentle mists and streaming jets of water.
The new amenities package also includes an additional landscaped entrance and a fitness trail, according to Jerome Henin. Henin is president of Henin Group, the firm developing the award-winning Riviera Bella community spanning 240 acres and overlooking the St. Johns River in DeBary. Henin Group started a major expansion of the luxury community last year.
In the original phases of Riviera Bella, M/I Homes is currently selling and building new single-family homes on the remaining homesites, priced from the high $200s, to more than $1 million for homes on the riverfront.
In the newer section of Riviera Bella with 293 homesites on 66+ acres across Fort Florida Road near Lake Konomac, homebuilder D.R. Horton is building new single-family homes priced from the mid-$200s.
Henin says there are fewer than 50 homesites remaining for new homes within the original 415-unit Riviera Bella development.
Henin, a native of France, is the founder and owner of several companies involved in real estate development and sales. He has more than 30 years of experience in property development in Europe, Florida and Virginia.
Riviera Bella, Henin’s largest Central Florida development, is located on the St. Johns River in DeBary and has received numerous awards. Riviera Bella is divided into villages, with production homes starting in the mid-$200s and custom homes that are priced up to as much as $2 million.
Upon completion of the 20-year residential project, the combined 708 homesites at Riviera Bella equate to approximately $300 million in total sales of homes in a variety of styles by homebuilders Henin Homes, M/I Homes and D.R. Horton. Build-out is expected in 2023.
