Elizabeth River Intracoastal waterway

Many people dream about owning waterfront property on the beautiful Elizabeth River, but now it’s easy to turn that dream into a reality. Riverview at The Preserve has single-family homes and townhomes available for purchase. Whether you love nature and being by the water or crave more of city life, Riverview at The Preserve is the place for you.

About the Elizabeth River

The beautiful Elizabeth River plays a vital role in the local economy. It’s part of the larger Intracoastal Waterway, a 3,000-mile-long series of rivers, bays and canals that stretches down the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States and provides a safer route of travel than the open sea. The waterway is easily navigated by commercial, sail and motor boat traffic.  

Riverview at The Preserve is located at the southern branch of the Elizabeth River near Great Bridge Lock park, which offers fishing and crabbing opportunities, playgrounds, walking trails and a boat ramp.

Enjoy the Benefits of Nearby Norfolk and Chesapeake

Riverview at The Preserve, a premier community developed by WeldenField & Rowe Custom Homes, offers the best of both worlds – you can enjoy the serenity and solitude of nature and still be a short car ride away from the shopping, great restaurants and cultural activities in Chesapeake and Norfolk.

The design of the gated community and its location next to the Elizabeth River encourages an active outdoor lifestyle. Amenities include a community pier and a waterside pavilion with boat and kayak storage. Private piers and boat docks are also available. Lighted walking paths, fire pits and benches situated along the riverbank welcome residents to kick back and take in sunsets at the end of the day or enjoy the views of the protected wetlands across the waterway.

If you prefer to unwind with a round of golf, there are several courses nearby. The area is also steeped in historical significance. Just a few miles away, history buffs can find several museums and visit historic sites from the Civil and Revolutionary Wars.

Benefits of Living by the Water

Riverview at The Preserve has something for everyone. From the maintenance-free townhomes that offer master bedrooms on the first floor to the custom single-family homes with water views, there are a variety of floor plans to choose from. WeldenField & Rowe carefully designed the community with the comfort and privacy of the residents in mind.
