The land on which this neighborhood is set encompasses approximately 600 acres and includes sprawling wooded areas, dramatic elevation increases and rolling hills.

Being set in one of the most beautiful areas of Virginia, Founders Bridge is also less than 1/2 mile from the colorful shoreline of the James River.
