At Sunrise Senior Living, we believe where you live is more than just an address – it’s a place for comfort, freedom, and happiness. And you’ll enjoy just that at The Colonnades, Central Virginia’s finest senior Independent Living community and the only senior Independent Living community sponsored by Foundations of the University of Virginia. An alternative to traditional retirement home living, a maintenance-free lifestyle where you can relax and leave the chores to us. Whether you enjoy the order of a well-organized day, complete with delicious meals and a vibrant social calendar, or living at your own tempo, you’ll always feel at home at The Colonnades.

Fifty-nine picturesque acres in Charlottesville, VA, at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, is home to The Colonnades. This senior living community is near the University of Virginia and Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, which gives residents the opportunity to enjoy a variety of intellectual and cultural activities. Local shopping, fine dining, as well as golf courses are also readily available. The Colonnades is conveniently accessed from the 250-Bypass, Highway 64 and Route 29.

At our Independent Living community, you’ll choose your new home from one and two-bedroom apartments, and two-bedroom cottages. The Colonnades daily senior living amenities, including restaurant-style dining and housekeeping, present residents with a relaxed and cozy lifestyle.

The Colonnades also offers you peace of mind: if a health issue arises, you’ll know support is available. In addition to the 24-hour medical care offered by most retirement homes, The Colonnades is dedicated to providing each resident with individualized care that supports freedom of choice and dignity, so you can live the life you want every day.
