Ashton Heights Property Values
Originally, the vast majority of houses were wood-framed foursquares and bungalows. These now share the neighborhood with Cape Cods and a predominant number of Colonials. Early deed restrictions laid down by Ashton C. Jones in hopes of creating and maintaining a "picturesque" environment, permitted only single-family homes, but the influx of residents to the Washington area during The New Deal and World War II, was overwhelming and led to the establishment of Ashton Heights' first multi-family dwellings.
Ashton Heights Early Days
In 1909, a native Virginian named Ashton C. Jones moved to Clarendon to join his brother in what were then promising real estate endeavors. Ten years later, Jones purchased sixty-one acres that had belonged to the Hunter family for nearly seventy years, out of which he platted two subdivisions. By 1921 he had combined the two into one and named it Ashton Heights. Over the next several years, development progressed steadily and the neighborhood's borders shifted occasionally to cover more ground.
