Flordon is located in western Albemarle County near Charlottesville, VA. It is conveniently located off US Route 250, and 3.5 miles from the University of Virginia.
Flordon is an established neighborhood with approximately 80 homes built from the 1960s to the 1980s and architectural styles ranging from Brick Colonials to Ranchers to Dutch Colonials. The lots range from 1 ½ acres to as many as 6 acres.
The neighborhood is maintained by the Flordon Road Committee, which is comprised of Jay Bourgeois, Tommy Adkins and Chauncey Hutter. Each year, in February, all Flordon homeowners pay annual dues into the Flordon Road Fund. For 2012, the annual dues were $300 for an improved lot and $75 for unimproved lots.
The original Flordon manor house was built in 1906 on what is now Old Ballard Road. Charles Hurt acquired the property and began to develop the neighborhood in the late 50s and early 60s. You can find the original subdivision restrictions in a deed conveying Lot 7, Block C (now 980 Tanglewood Road) from Dr. Charles Hurt to Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Fox dated December 1, 1959.
