Living in Dunlora
Home sweet home.
Dunlora is an established community of 379 homes located in Albemarle County, Virginia. Dunlora is conveniently located on Rio Road, just north of Pen Park. All of the conveniences of Charlottesville are just a short drive away. Within minutes residents can be in the heart of downtown Charlottesville, enjoying the many shops, restaurants, and cultural activities that the downtown area offers. Easy access to Route 29 puts the University of Virginia, schools, restaurants, shopping, and sporting venues all within easy reach.

But it is Dunlora's natural beauty and outdoor activities that set it apart from other area neighborhoods. Half of the acreage in the development is open space.  Nestled along the Rivanna River, Dunlora offers a network of walking trails that allow residents to enjoy the great outdoors. And through the connection of these trails to the Rivanna Trails Foundation trail system, residents have easy access to more than 20 miles of hiking and biking trails that can lead to adventures up and down the Rivanna River and across Albemarle County. When hiking out one’s back door, surrounded by the natural beauty of the Rivanna River and floodplains, it is hard to imagine that the commercial center of Charlottesville is just minutes away.

Dunlora also offers a variety of neighborhood amenities, including two lighted tennis courts, a swimming pool and toddler pool, a playground, a clubhouse and exercise room, vegetable garden plots and athletic fields.
