Our Custom Home Program for the finest homes


The Custom Home Program (CHP) is comprised of architects, home designers, custom home builders, landscapers and interior design professionals.  These experts are available to provide information, guidance and services to River Landing property owners as you begin the process of designing and building your dream home at River Landing.  Portfolios are available at the Welcome Center and opportunities to meet with CHP Members can be arranged at your convenience.

Great care has gone into establishing and governing the architectural guidelines for the designing, constructing and landscaping of your home in order to maintain the aesthetic beauty of our community.  Members of the CHP are well versed in all of our guidelines and work closely with the Architectural Standards Committee (ASC) to ensure your home will be compliant with all the guidelines.

When selecting a CHP builder or other professionals associated with the designing and building of your new home, you must feel comfortable and confident with your decisions.  Designing and building a new home is the opportunity of a lifetime that is very exciting and rewarding.  It is the goal of the Custom Home Program to introduce you to professionals who can work with you to ensure your success.
