A Brief History of Ashburn Farm
The majority of the land on which Ashburn Farm is located was originally the Gray Dairy Farm. A windmill was salvaged and restored from the Gray Estate and now stands with the large “Ohio Buckeye” tree.
The Ashburn Farm Partnership was created under Virginia law and began development in 1986. Construction started after the concept plan was approved by Loudoun County in 1986. Cavalier Land Development Corp., developers of Ashburn Farm, planned the community to blend with the natural rolling terrain, resulting in winding boulevards and lots of trees. Ashburn Farm is north of the Dulles Greenway and bordered by Belmont Ridge Rd to the west, Ashburn Rd to the east, and the W&OD Trail to the north.
The first home was purchased in the summer of 1988. All the roads and utilities were built to Loudoun County and State standards, and have been dedicated to the State of Virginia for continued maintenance. Streets in the townhouse areas however, were conveyed to and are maintained by the Ashburn Farm Association. Individual homeowners are responsible for common driveways and/or pipe stems.

The Ashburn Farm Association performs annual property inspections & follow-up inspections on each townhome and single family lot in the community. The Annual Inspection process is a review of each lot and the exterior of all structures therein, using the Association’s Covenants and Architectural Design & Maintenance Standards as the benchmark. The exterior of the home, as well as any other structure or improvement to the property will be visually inspected for maintenance issues, like faded or mismatched paint, torn screens, rotted wood, etc. Simply put, your lot should be tidy and the exterior of any structures, modifications, etc. therein be maintained in good condition and clean.
