Community Overview

The Community

Charlottesville’s ultimate location for convenience – Shepherd’s Ridge at Dunlora!

This is the lifestyle you’ve worked so hard to attain. In a private enclave adjacent to the sought-after Dunlora community, you can create treasured memories of home with your family and friends.

Today, a well-constructed home is as important as a beautiful and functional layout. One-level homes give you the ease and accessibility of having everything you need on a single floor, while two-story floor plans allow you the space to spread out and maximize privacy.

Convenience is important, too. Always being busy, you need easy, fast routes to your work, desired schools and dining & entertainment. You want to be able to hop on John Warner Parkway and be anywhere in no time.

Here, your neighbors are your friends too. You can cheer on your kids at UVA games during the day & relax at barbeques in your backyard at night. You'll love having your neighbors over for dinner while the kids hang out in the included finished basement.
