River Mill

Welcome to River Mill

Suburban luxury homes in a quiet master-planned community

 

Just 13 miles north of central Richmond lies the newly developed residential neighborhood of River Mill. A mere five minutes from Interstate 95 and 295, the community is one of the most conveniently located new districts in the area. With its network of nature trails and tight-knit suburban vibe, the neighborhood has become known for its scenic setting and easy walkability. 

 

Only recently made available for purchase, the newly constructed townhouses and single-family homes of River Mill have been creating a buzz throughout Henrico County’s property market. The meticulously planned community also offers residents access to many sought-after amenities and attractions, turning an otherwise quaint residential district into a hub of activity that only adds to the neighborhood’s appeal. 

 

Although the dominant architectural style leans toward a fusion of Bungalow, Cape Cod, and Colonial influences, the many spacious townhouses, and single-family homes will soon be joined by modern, luxury apartments and condos. Thanks to this further development of River Mill’s real estate market, the influx of new residents will add to the community’s appeal while creating an opportune environment for many locally owned businesses, eateries, and bars to pop up throughout the district. 


What to Love

  • Neat, spacious homes in quiet residential streets
  • Range of popular amenities and attractions
  • Proximity to Richmond and neighboring cities via the Interstate highways
  • Walkability
  • Great schools

Local Lifestyle

Life in River Mill is best described as active, with most residents taking full advantage of the neighborhood’s walkability and nature trails to spend much of their leisure time outdoors. Besides walking and cycling, many residents commute to nearby Richmond and neighboring cities for work, returning to River Mill to enjoy the tranquility and peace this laidback neighborhood affords those who call it home. 

 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Although River Mill is a mainly residential neighborhood, there are many popular shopping and dining spots in the vicinity, including the Short Pump Town Center, which features numerous well-known brand stores like Aerie, Aldo, Sephora, Lush, and Sunglass Hut. The mall is also home to many highly rated restaurants like Casa Del Barco, which also features a tequilaria and serves authentic Mexican comfort food in a bright, fun setting. Besides hosting eateries and retail stores, Short Pump regularly organizes public events, including benefit wine tastings, summer concerts, and fresh produce deliveries. And, if Short Pump doesn’t manage to satisfy your retail therapy needs, a short drive to the Virginia Center Commons is sure to do the trick. Anchored by several independent boutiques and convenience stores, the center is a common stop when running errands or looking for something fresh, new, and not so mainstream. 

 

Avid gardeners and cooks will also enjoy a visit to the Lavender Fields Herb Farm, which has over 200 varieties of herbs, vegetables, berries, and garden plants that can easily be relocated to your new home’s spacious yard.


Things to Do

River Mill is surrounded by many exciting attractions and activities, including the popular theme and waterpark, King’s Dominion. With more than 60 rides, shows, and family-friendly activities, the park is a beloved destination, especially for residents with kids and teens. For those who prefer more relaxed pursuits, Mill Square Park is a beautiful communal green space available to River Mill residents. It features grilling stations and a fire pit, surrounded by a beautifully treed forest. 

 

The construction of The Connexion clubhouse for River Mill residents is sure to add yet another level of appeal while offering the perfect venue for social events, get-togethers, and community-organized activities.
