The pristine sidewalks are the perfect spot for an afternoon stroll on a sunny day, plus there are 10 named parks, a dog park, and a 35-acre nature preserve in the neighborhood, too.

Unrivaled Lifestyle

Drive through Ardrey to admire the breathtaking Charleston-style architecture that harkens back to days long since passed. Manicured lawns and meticulously kept gardens provide a breath of fresh air. Ardrey is also a “tree-save” community, which means that when it was built, the land wasn’t simply flattened to make room for homes. Rather, homes were carefully planned to work with and preserve the natural landscape and environment.
