“Lennar and Pacesetter Homes, two award-winning builders, now join Dream Finders Homes and Buffington Homes at Orchard Ridge, increasing the range of choices in a community that already offers a diverse and compelling sense of place,” said Freehold Communities Texas Division president Matt D. Matthews. “We welcome their neighborhoods to Orchard Ridge which draws successfully from the healthy Hill Country and north Austin market.”
