Chesterfield County (Zone 52 & 54)
Located along the James River between the towns of Chester and Hopewell in southeast Chesterfield County. As the name would imply, is situated along a bend in the James River. Along with the frontage on the James River, the neighborhood winds along the River’s Bend Golf Course, an 18 hole semi-private club that anchors the neighborhood.
The Rivers Bend neighborhood has roots predating the recession of 1987-91 and as many new home subdivisions did, struggled during that period. Initially thought to be an upscale and luxury development for the upper management for the manufacturing industry located in the I95 South industrial corridor (DuPont, Honeywell, Philip Morris, Mead WestVaco), Rivers Bend was forced to modify its product offering when the market returned in the early 1990’s.
Offering mostly colonial and transitional plans on 1/3 to 1/2 acre lots, the majority of Rivers Bend was finished by the early 2000’s. Some of the original home can be quite noteworthy however, with some commanding vistas of the James from elevated lots scattered throughout the development. The neighborhood and golf course are well known, however, largely due to their visibility from the 295 Enon Bridge as it crosses the James River just to the east.
