From rolling hills and towering pines to babbling streams and a diverse set of native flowers, the Central Virginia region boasts a rich set of natural surroundings. We’re fortunate to call this area home and remain committed to protecting our environment. In fact, many homeowners in our master-planned communities chose them because of the ways we preserve and incorporate natural elements. Green amenities and outdoor living spaces are increasingly popular in the Richmond region and across the country.
A recent survey from the American Institute of Architects found that outdoor living topped the list of special-function rooms most popular with American homeowners. When you live in such a beautiful region, who wouldn’t want to spend more time outdoors? We believe it’s how you live that matters and incorporating outdoor living features in your home can transform ordinary spaces into places that create meaningful experiences. So, what are some of the best outdoor living examples in the Richmond region? Here are three communities for your outdoor living inspiration!
