River Ridge Real Estate
River Ridge homes offer intense architectural features in this small community which stretches but a short distance up the river.

There are spacious plantation-style mansions as well as Acadian cottages and more modern single family homes, duplexes and apartments. The homes contain such features as arches and columns, which combined with the oak and magnolia trees creates a truly Southern ambiance.
