One of the best located townhome/condo communities in Sanford is without a doubt Dunwoody, often referred to as Dunwoody Commons or Carriage Homes at Dunwoody.
The community consists of two sections (not separated within the community, however the subdivision has 2 gated entries and 2 community pools). One part (the older part of the community, built 2004-2006) are the town homes at Dunwoody. Many of them do not come with a garage but all of them have screened porches, some with private views. The other section of the community, the newer part that was built between 2006 and 2008, are the Carriage Homes at Dunwoody. The ownership of these is condominium. These condos are either ground floor or first floor units. Ground floor units have a screened in porch, first floor units have a screened balcony. There are also two story units available.
