WaterSong at RiverTown is a 55+ community in Northeast Florida.
Situated almost equidistant between Jacksonville and St. Augustine, the RiverTown master-planned community is located along the banks of the St. John's River, pictured above.
Like most master-planned communities, there are multiple neighborhoods within RiverTown, and WaterSong is the only one right now that is designated 55+.
The WaterSong neighborhood within RiverTown is being developed/built by Mattamy Homes, the largest private homebuilder in North America.
While Mattamy builds thousands of homes every year in many different communities, WaterSong is their first effort at developing a community for the 55+ market.
WaterSong sits on about 260 acres, and once completed, will feature approximately 800 villas and single-family homes.
Nobody sets out to open a new community in the midst of a pandemic, but that's what happened with WaterSong at RiverTown.
They opened for sales in March 2020, but like most 55+ communities in Florida, the pandemic did nothing to hamper sales.

We moved into our Watersong home in April 2022. We love living here!! One note: while Watersong has access to all Rivertown amenities, only Watersong residents can use Watersong amenities. This keeps our neighborhood quiet.. especially the pool area.
We found Rivertown by chance and feel so very lucky to be a part of this beautiful, friendly neighborhood!!
