The county recently passed a Greenway plan for the Clarion river. That changes everything.

For some reason, I think the OP wants more upscale housing. Not top notch, but more middle class to upper middle class housing.
The website i linked to includes the middle and upper middle housing, there are just several pages and its starts w/the lowest priced first.........

OP, what do you think of West Virginia? My mother had a cousin who lived on lake front property. If you're interested in West Virginia, I'll find the name of the area for you.

Washington's Landing has upscale townhomes. It's a little island in the Allegheny River---just minutes from downtown. There's a marina called Washington's Landing Marina and there is a biking path that goes along the Allegheny River to the North Shore downtown. This is what the housing plan is like: Architecture
If you like the look of the houses, you should see the excavation that went under them. It's most excellent.

But seriously though, you might also look along the riverbanks right here in the greater Pittsburgh area. Monaca, here in Beaver County has a number of homes with actual river frontage, just as an example. There are certainly more than that one...
