Ayr Hill Heights neighborhood is just north of the Town of Vienna and comprises of 58 homes built from the mid 50’s to the early 60’s. The neighborhood is approximately 1 mile from the businesses on Church Street and Maple Avenue but still in walking distance. This is less convenient access but allows for less street traffic as opposed to the neighborhoods that are within a block or two. Like much of Vienna in the most recent decade some of the original homes have been torn down and more modern larger Colonial or Craftsman style homes have been built. With Vienna lot prices increasing it can make financial sense to tear down rather than remodel the existing older home. There are many opportunities for buyers looking to build a custom home or buy an existing small rambler in the Town of Vienna, contact me to visit the listing currently availability in Vienna.
