Riverwoods is located just off the Cahaba River in Helena, Alabama. The setting is quite attractive and the homes are situated on well sized lots within the hills and woods that follow the river. The main access to the neighborhood is located off HWY 52 (Morgan Rd.) and runs through the neighborhood providing access into the housing areas of the development.
Riverwoods is not your typical residential development. Homes are designed to blend into the natural landscape. The rolling hills and wooded areas have been manicured to provide lots for the building of the homes. Normally, you might think that this would be a negative, but not in this situation. Large pines and other native vegetation have been left in place to provide natural barriers between the homes and sections of Riverwoods.
Once you have passed the information booth, you will notice a small grouping of homes off to the left. Passing that, you will see a road to the right. Along this road, there is new construction on the first two lots, and I believe there are four others available. These lots are beautiful: large, wooded, private, yet located with quick access to HWY 52. You'll be impressed with how the homes are blended into the natural surroundings.
As you move further into Riverwoods, sections of homes can be found on the right or left sides of the main drive. Our quick guide would be, large homes on right, larger homes on left! You'll also note different styles of homes representative of the different builders that are constructing the homes in Riverwoods, yet the dominating home style is Traditional American.
Homes in Riverwoods can be found with cedar siding, stacked stone fronts, white pillars, and stained glass windows (or any combination thereof!). The modern amenities included in the home include solid countertops and stainless appliances. Landscaping around the homes varies, yet the dominate characteristic is the natural appearance.
New sections in Riverwoods have been opened recently and new construction homes are being placed on the market. According to one builder, future growth in Riverwoods is planned to move towards the Cahaba River with estate sized lots being located along the river itself. Homes in this section will be priced accordingly to their location and will be hot commodities once construction begins!

The homes mentioned above in the wooded lots have been finished. In fact, the last time I was in Riverwoods, two new homes were under construction in similar wooded lots. Personally, I like one of the lots in the middle most and am interested myself. Also, on the ridge that leads to the river, some very nice homes have been finished and sold. Look for the back portion of the development to begin with some opportunities to grab river front lots!
