Current MLS Listings for Riverlake Colony
Henrico County (Zone 22)
The Riverlake Colony neighborhood, located along River Road in western Henrico, provides upscale and luxury housing to the corridor. Riverlake was originally developed in the later 1980’s to provide new homes to a corridor largely built during prior decades and thus in need of more modern housing options.
Similar to its cousin of the times, Barrington, Riverlake Colony’s initial sections were sold directly to individuals (not builders) meaning the first homes were far more diverse and unique to reflect the wishes of the individuals who had purchased the lots. As the development evolved, more of the lots were sold directly to builders and the later sections were built in a far more homogeneous, albeit still luxuriously classic, styles.
Some of the homes in the neighborhood are quite stunning as one would expect for community along River Road. 5 bedroom homes are the norm with material palates consistent with luxury home building. Lot sizes in the first sections are larger than those in later sections, but still considered sizable by Western Henrico residential standards.
