Location – The Riverwood neighborhood of Charlottesville VA sits across Rt. 29 South from NGIC so it’s an easy walk to Rivanna Station (NGIC & DIA).
Two minutes to the UVA Research Park, and 3 mins to Target and the Hollymead Town Center shopping.
Charlottesville Albemarle Airport (CHO) is five minutes away. And UVA and the Historic Downtown Mall are 20 minutes south.
Directions – From Cville: Take 29N 2.5 miles past the Hollymead Town Center. Turn Left on Briarwood Drive at the intersection of Briarwood & 29N.
My thoughts – I don’t like Riverwood. It’s in a lousy location and too far from anything other than NGIC. (However, it is perfect for those seeking homes near NGIC).
I think Ryan sold everyone on it being the most affordable place to buy in Albemarle County and it was since they paid United Land so little for the land.
Your kids will be bored to death here in the summer and on holidays and I can guarantee you you’ll be shuttling them around to make them happy.
The 5-acre community park that was hyped is not what I expect a park to look like. It’s more like a field in a river floodplain.
I also think, reselling these homes is going to be tough in the future and the quality has yet to be determined.
My suggestion – Look at Forest Lakes homes where there are some fabulous amenities. I give Riverwood a 5 out of 10. It’s a bore.
PS – As you can see, I also don’t like Ryan Homes.
Thanks for reading along…
I would be honored to be your Charlottesville realtor.
