Building Here

From coastal waterfront cottages to stately homes on the Channel, the architecture at River Dunes is inspired by traditional coastal communities and a love of the water.

The River Dunes Master Builder Program was established to ensure that the process of building a custom home in the community would be as seamless as possible.

Builders have been selected based on their overall knowledge of coastal building materials and construction, familiarity with River Dunes architectural styles and guidelines, excellence in customer service and high levels of customer satisfaction.
