Property For Sale


Multiple Listing Service

River Ridge Property For Sale

MLS provided by Roanoke Valley Lake Gaston Board of Realtors. Please use their email for any questions you may have regarding property sales on their website.


Be sure to visit the Classifieds forum on the Grapevine Now website for properties for sale by owner or to request a property specific to your needs.





The Forum Is Gone
The servers were recently upgraded requiring software changes. I write the code for the entire website with the exception of the forum, which is a third party program. When the server changes went into effect everything worked except for the forum. I have been unable to get the forum operational and have given up. To be honest with everyone, the forum has been a pain to maintain since day one.

Don't panic! My records show that the forum was mainly used for classifieds so I am currently in the process of writing a program for a Classifieds Ad section on our website. You will be able to post property and items for sale, or something you are looking to purchase. You will also be able to post services such as yard work, babysitting, etc.

The new Classifieds can be viewed by anyone and you will not be required to register to post your ads. I'm also hoping to have upload capabilities so you can post photos with your ad. I have the upload portion written but have not tested it on the server so keep your fingers crossed. Please be patient as this will take some time, but it will happen.

Covenants Review and Update
The Board of Directors has selected a committee to review and update our Covenants. This is a great opportunity for Property Owners to get involved in the rules that protect, preserve, and enhance our livelihood and property values in River Ridge. The members are:
  • Terry Milligan
  • Ollie Dunn
  • Donnie Beck
  • Howard Powell
  • Al Freer
The Covenant Committee welcomes your input and suggestions. Contact any member directly or leave a message at the office. You may also send your suggestions to rr_office@bitbroadband.com.

Illegal Dumping
Be careful of what you are putting into the dumpster. Maintenance and security have been cracking down on illegal dumping. The green dumpsters outside our gate are for household garbage only. This is county policy, not River Ridge, and violator's are being reported to the county!

Brush, stumps, wires, tires, bedding, furniture, appliances, carpet, building materials, metal, or liquids are NOT allowed. The county will not pick up these items and River Ridge has to pay to have them hauled to the proper dump site(s). This is costing all of us. Property owners in violation are issued a ticket and non property owners are reported to the county. A ticket will result in a Saturday in front of the Tribunal and a $50.00 fine.

Find out where you can dispose of everything from household garbage and yard debris to that rickety old stove or used oil. This page will explain where you can legally take these items, hours of operation and a map to the remote dump site. Click here for a list of River Ridge and remote dump sites.

If you see someone dumping illegally, please take a photo (or 2) and contact Security at (434) 636-5536 immediately to report the violation.

Trunk -or- Treat
Due to my work schedule, I don't get many opportunities to attend River Ridge events so I was very excited to be able to attend the Trunk or Treat at the Chapel this year and I have to admit that I had a blast. There were so many cute costumes, games, tons of candy, baked goods and even hot dogs. Our resident DJ, Justin Linke, was there with some Halloween music to liven the mood.

Towards the end of the evening the kids went on a hunt for the "Great Pumpkin". Each child who found a pumpkin won $1.00 and the lucky hunter who found the Great Pumpkin won $25.00. Our big winner was a young lady named Camdyn. Honestly folks, if you want to see something hilarious, take a bunch of kids hopped up on sugar and chocolate, tell them there is a field full of pumpkins and one is worth $25.00, then turn them all loose. I never knew kids could move that fast.

I want to thank everyone who participated in the Trunk or Treat and for allowing me to be part of this event. If the kids had half as much fun as I did, it was a complete success. I also want to thank Rose Phelps for allowing me the use of her new camera so I could film the event. Dear Santa: Please bring me a camera like hers.

Please be sure to visit the Photo Album page and view all the photos for the 2018 Trunk -or- Treat.

Facebook Complaints
Once again I would like to clarify that neither I nor this website are affiliated in any way with Facebook. If someone has posted something on Facebook that you find offensive, or you are being slandered and/or bullied, please contact the person who maintains the Facebook page. I cannot help you with Facebook complaints.

911 Confusion
Around 1:00 AM today we received a 911 call where the caller, once again, gave the dispatcher his/her lot number and road name instead of their 911 address. Because the 911 dispatcher and Security were given the incorrect information, the emergency vehicles were dispatched to the wrong address. Three of our Security staff, Bill Phelps, Bubba Murphy and Crystal Linke, were scurrying around in the snow and rain trying to find the person who needed an ambulance. Luckily, they were able to locate the correct address.

Your lot number is NOT the same as your 911 address!

If you are unsure of your 911 address, please use the 911 Address Search and find it now. Write it down and keep it near your phone or somewhere easily accessible like your refrigerator door. In the middle of the night when you need help, is not the time to try and figure out where you live.

There are over 1500 lots in River Ridge and with the correct information we can find them all, however, if you don't know where you live then neither do we!

Emergency Calls and 911 Addresses
A new page has been added to the website!

We are still having problems with property owners not knowing their 911 address. When you make a 911 call for fire or rescue, we are not always notified by the 911 dispatcher. Sometimes our only notice is from the first responder when they are about 3-5 minutes from River Ridge. This requires some scurrying from Security, especially if the call comes in at 3:00 AM when everyone is asleep.

During an emergency it's easy to get discombobulated and give the dispatcher your lot number and street name. This causes major confusion when we are given the address and can cause a delay in getting help to your location.

In the event of an emergency, the 911 dispatcher will require your 911 address.

Your lot number is NOT the same as your 911 address.

I have added a new button in the yellow menu column (to your left) so you can look up your 911 address by your lot number. If you are unsure of your address, please check it here. Simply enter your lot number to find your 911 addresss. You should write down this information and keep it next to your phone or in a place where it is easily accessible, like your refrigerator door.
