This beautifully planned community is situated along the Cahaba River, boasting tree lined sidewalks and peaceful walking trails. Residents enjoy the community pool, clubhouse and playground. With great Helena schools, shopping, amenities, and entertainment, Riverwoods is the ideal place to call home.

It is no wonder Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builders chose this as the Showcase Home for the 2016 Fall Community Home Tour. It is absolutely gorgeous! Let me show around.

It features five bedrooms, three and half bathrooms on a beautiful wooded lot.

The kitchen is top of the line, from the side by side double refrigerator/freezer, Caesarstone countertops, Delta Touch20 Technology faucet with hands free capabilities anyone could feel like a chef preparing meals in the kitchen.
