Ashton Heights is a National Register Historic District. The National Register Nomination for Ashton Heights identifies both the house and the garage on this property as “contributing” structures. In the nomination the home is described as:
Set on a rock-faced concrete block foundation, the three-bay house has a porch that extends along the southwest side of the dwelling. The shed dormer, containing two six-light casement windows, sits atop the side gable roof with wide eaves.
Homeowners in National Register Historic Districts can be eligible for Virginia State Income tax credits for certain improvements to their property.
The gardens around this home have been well cared for and maintained over the years. The yard has a wonderful collection of native plants which greatly contribute to the value of this property.
The owner of this home cared greatly for the property and equally as much for the community. Her involvement in civic life in Arlington was unmatched. She had always made it clear that her wish was for someone to purchase her home and care for it as she has for the last four decades and to also be active and engaged in the community. One could only hope that the walls of this home and the gardens on this property will provide some sort of residual energy and motivation for the next owner to be engaged and active in preserving this property but also participating in the community.
The Estate is in the process of having the property appraised and will entertain inquiries for the property soon. For additional details, contact: Bob Johnson: email@example.com.
