Dunlora – Charlottesville Luxury Townhomes
Dunlora is located northwest of the City of Charlottesville with easy access to the Rt. 29 shopping corridor. There are 190 townhomes in the Dunlora(s) as I will call them which includes Dunlora, Dunlora Forest, Dunlora Gates, Dunlora Park, and Shepherd’s Ridge at Dunlora (which is in Dunlora but a separate luxury townhome community). Of the 190 townhomes, there are only 12 luxury townhomes.
All 4 neighborhoods, Dunlora, Dunlora Forest, Dunlora Gates, Dunlora Park, and Shepherd’s Ridge at Dunlora, are located next to each other and were developed by local builders, Ryan Homes, and Stanley Martin Homes.
Shepherd’s Ridge at Dunlora (in Dunlora) was the first to be developed in 2000.
The newest and last Charlottesville luxury townhome was built in 2020 in Dunlora Park by Evergreen Builders. It was a 4 bed/3.5 bath and sold for $679,000
The Albemarle County Public Schools that serve the Dunlora(s) are: Agnor Hurt Elementary, Burley Middle, and Albemarle High Schools.
My Thoughts – I love the Dunlora neighborhood. It’s attractive with amenities and great walking trails. If you’re looking for a low-maintenance lifestyle in a convenient location, consider buying a luxury townhome in one of Charlottesville’s many desirable neighborhoods. There are many reasons to choose a townhome in Dunlora. They ares are a great option for people who are looking for a low-maintenance lifestyle in a convenient location and a good option for people who are downsizing but still desire all the luxuries of a single-family home.
I am not in love with the other neighborhoods around Dunlora which includes Dunlora Forest, Dunlora Gates, and Dunlora Park since a new development might be going up directly across the street from these neighborhoods. The noise and traffic will be a intolerable.
Note – Dunlora was once a fine 18th century plantation located on the South Rivanna River. It still stands today and the Dunlora neighborhood surrounds it.
