River Bluff, which is in the Hill Point Farms community and built by Platinum Homes offers a relaxed lifestyle with boating, fishing, golfing, large green spaces with picnic areas, and swimming – all in one neighborhood!

River Bluff Life at River Bluff is both peaceful and active, with sweeping water views in your own yard, as well as natural walking trails, a 10-acre park with picnic area, playground, and an 18-hole riverfront golf course. The brand new Hillpoint Elementary is at your front door. River Bluff offers many lifestyle choices including expansive estate lots and exclusive waterfront homes, with access to the Chesapeake Bay…and beyond. There is no other neighborhood like River Bluff.

Whether raising a family, seeking quiet solitude, or pursuing a life filled with action, River Bluff offers its residents an incomparable quality of life. Platinum’s homes offer expansive, light-filled, spaces with special attention paid to the way you actually live. Storage space abounds, and energy efficiency is built in from day one. The neighborhood offers water access, a community swimming pool, parks, and private waterfront observatory.

Fun facts about River Bluff and the Nansemond River:

  • Nansemond River is your gateway to the Chesapeake Bay
  • Depth of water is 12-15 MWL so large boats can be accommodated
  • Private docks/piers are an option on the waterfront home
  • Longest “living shoreline” in the state of Virginia. Platinum Homes rescued an eroding shoreline where big trees were toppling into the water and pulling soil with them resulting in a less stable shoreline. By creating a living shoreline, Platinum strategically removed certain plants and replaced them with options designed to take hold of the soil and strengthen it.
