an you remember when the Rochester area consisted of rolling meadows, open spaces, wooded wetlands and fruit orchards? Orchard Ridge has it all!

Build the 5,500+ square foot estate of your dreams and share space with the wildlife that has inhabited the land for many years. Each homesite has been methodically planned for seclusion and magnificent views. Orchard Ridge has been designed for people who want an exclusive way of life in a development of rare quality. Importantly, your palatial, traditional home will be ideally located in close proximity to your place of work, entertainment and sporting events, great dining establishments and first class shopping.
