Welcome to Riverwood on the Rivanna—where your search ends. 

These brand new homes come with the features and finishes that your family wants and deserves. Beyond that, they are tested, inspected, and HERS® scored by a third party energy consultant to ensure maximum energy efficiency.

At Riverwood on the Rivanna, you will never have “house envy” again. Our single-family homes include garages and finished basements, giving you the space you need. At your dinner parties, your friends will be in awe over your cabinets, counters, and flooring because we’ve hired a designer to put together the best-looking interiors around!

Enjoy breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains while cooking out on your back deck. Hop on the community walking trail down to the river for a morning jog along the banks of the Rivanna. Get ready to go swimming, fishing or kayaking on your weekends!
