It’s everything you wish for…and more than you imagined.

Founded on the principles of sustainability, healthy living and great streets, Belvedere is a convenient neighborhood in Charlottesville unlike any other. It is that most sought-after hybrid—combining the best of urban and country living. It’s located in scenic, Central Virginia in Albemarle County, with spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, rolling terrain and a park-like setting, with miles of lush walking and biking trails, on the banks of the Rivanna River. And yet, it’s just 2.5 miles from lively, downtown Charlottesville, where you’ll find great shopping, dining and entertainment, world-class healthcare—and one of America’s great universities.

Plus, Belvedere is unlike any other neighborhood in Virginia.

Here, we consider ourselves urban by nature. That’s why Belvedere offers a walkable community that is conducive to making connections with neighbors, while maintaining a healthy, eco-friendly lifestyle.

Soon, you will be able to walk your child to preschool, their sports practice, or the swim club.
