When you step out the front door of your home in Villages of Piedmont at Leopold's Preserve, you will be in Aldo Leopold country.

Aldo Leopold, the famous conservationist, forester, philosopher, and author, implored the public to find harmony with nature. And that's just what you will find in this bucolic community.

Equinox Investments, LLC, the developer of this project, had Leopold in mind when they designed a mix of comfortable living and outdoor recreation in a natural environment. But they went a step further by preserving and protecting 70 percent of the land--380 acres--and placing it under a conservation easement held by the Northern Virginia Conservation Trust. The White House Farm Foundation manages that land, known as Leopold's Preserve.

With this impressive open space commitment, Villages of Piedmont at Leopold's Preserve offers a unique and thoughtful solution to progressive land use management and finding the balance between human population growth and the preservation of natural habitats.

A number of transportation-related improvements have further enhanced the community, such as a signalized intersection at Market Ridge Boulevard and Route 15; the widening of Route 15 from two to four lanes; and the addition of a 5 foot paved pedestrian trail along Route 15 at the entrance to the community.

Villages of Piedmont at Leopold's Preserve provides a unique living experience and promotes a true 'sense of place' by recognizing and protecting the special characteristics of the land. 

This unique community is a model for preservation-oriented land planning.and was awarded Green Community of the Year by Prince William County, and recently won the coveted Innovative Land Planning Award from the National Association of Home Builders.
