What We Are
Dunbarton is an intimately-sized, active adult community for homeowners who have reached the 55-year milestone. Located in Bristow, VA, in historic Prince William County, 45 minutes away from Washington, DC.  This serene, gated community is situated on land first settled by the Linton family from Scotland. They gave the land to the Benedictine Sisters, who later sold it for residential development.  On these 141 acres, where the Sisters once picked berries and fished, are now 479 homes. 
Construction on the Dunbarton community began in 2001. It features homes of various sizes and styles, specifically designed for the active adult homeowner with spacious first floor master suites with spa-like baths, casual outdoor living spaces and ample storage areas.  The quiet neighborhood atmosphere welcomes residents within mature landscaping and charming curb appeal.   Common areas, which include streets, facilities and amenities, are owned and maintained by the Community Association.  HOA dues are reasonable and include basic cable and internet, trash pickup, and street and common area maintenance.
The community offers a wonderful set of amenities to encourage a physically fit and socially active lifestyle centered around our lovely 21,000 square foot clubhouse.  Its features include a fitness center, indoor swimming pool and spa, a multi-purpose room accommodating many activities, including billiards and card games, a relaxed gathering room and a grand ballroom perfect for holiday parties, dances, social gatherings, theatrical plays, seminars and more.  Outdoors there are tennis and pickle ball courts, a putting green, bocce courts, and a walking trail beside Broad Run. 
Moving to Dunbarton can expand your social calendar with activities such as bridge, Bible study, sewing and scrap-booking, various exercise classes, line dancing and musical presentations.  There is a drama group, a billiards group, book clubs, and golfers who make use of local golf courses.   Monthly activities include: a Community Breakfast, a Men’s Lunch, a Dine Around dinner event and a wine club gathering.   If you are ready for local travel, there are historic sites, outlet shopping and, as mentioned before, Washington, DC, with its wonderful sights and museums, is only 45 minutes away.
