Riverview is a gorgeous, eclectic, high-end neighborhood on the Chattahoochee River. Large trees and lovely landscaping add to its beauty and some homes have river lots with amazing views. It was developed in the early 1970s and contains many expansive homes with a large variety of architectural styles and lot sizes. Most lots are in the 1.5-2-acre range, and some are even larger. Visitors will find everything from teardowns to mansions, ranging in square footage from under 2500 to upwards of 11,000! Homes tend to feature 5 or more bedrooms, sometimes with as many bathrooms. A few homes have access to a small lake and a 6-acre horse pasture.
An active neighborhood association maintains Riverview. Amenities include access to a beautiful private park on the river with a playground and picnic tables. Residents hike and fish there and it’s used for neighborhood social events. Additionally, The Forum on Peachtree Parkway and top-notch Robert Fowler YMCA are just a short walk away.
Award winning schools, access to shopping, and its commuter-convenient location on Hwy 141 just south of the Chattahoochee River all contribute to Riverview’s continued desirability.
