Property Description

Ash Grove is one of the few standing 18th century Virginia houses, and was built by the Fairfax family. Thomas Fairfax built the original portion of the house in 1790, and the family inhabited the house until 1847. The house sits on approximately one acre of land between the densely wooded Old Courthouse Spring Branch stream valley and the Westwood Village townhouse subdivision. Conveniently located on the edge of burgeoning Tysons Corner and approximately 2/3 mile from the new Spring Hill Metro Station. The property’s grounds have several historic structures including the house and restored 18th century brick kitchen, and smokehouse.

Ash Grove is a stately Federal style 2.5 story, center hall house with 4,200 square feet of finished space. A serious fire in 1960 could have doomed the legacy of Ash Grove House. Fortunately however, many of the architectural features had been removed from the house prior to restoration work including; original doors, windows and much of the interior woodwork. A set of Historic American Buildings Surveys (HABS) architectural drawings and photographs from the 1930’s proved instrumental in restoring the fire damaged house. Some of the wood floors still bear charring marks from the fire.

 

 
Additional Notes

This house is part of Fairfax County’s Resident Curator Program.

The Resident Curator Program is designed to preserve the County’s publicly- owned historic properties, by offering long-term leases to qualified tenants, with no cash rent collected, in exchange for the curator’s financial commitment to rehabilitate and maintain the historic resource in accordance with program standards.

Curators are selected through a transparent and competitive application process.

For more information on the Resident Curator Program, and for a copy of the curatorship application for the property, please visit:
