Discover Downtown Ashland

June 7, 2021 10:36 pm

There’s a lot to love about the Hickory Hill community of homes in Ashland VA: acre-plus sites, beautiful homes built to your specifications, and the tranquility of an easy-going, peaceful, rural neighborhood. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up the perks of city life. Downtown Ashland is a lively and unique place that is just minutes away from Hickory Hill. Combine the best of country and city living and with a home at Hickory Hill, The Reserve.

Hickory Hill is one of Hanover County’s premiere communities. On one hand, residents enjoy 500 acres of preservation land, common areas, walking and biking trails, and the beauty and fun of nature. On the other hand, you’ve got Downtown Ashland to feed you, keep you entertained, and let you indulge in some great shopping, as well as some great people watching. Ashland is known as a colorful, lively location and you’re sure to spend plenty of time there.

Train tracks run through the center of this historic district, which is located just 16 miles from Richmond, but regardless of which side of the tracks you’re on, you’ll find something appealing. Ashland has a small town vibe where you can get to know the locals and find local shops and restaurants, but it has the vivacity of a bigger city ensuring you’re never short of things to do and explore. The town prides itself on its locally owned shops, farm-to-table dining, arts and entertainment, all available on both sides of the train tracks.

For example, the Ashland Theatre is a historic film and performing arts venue, bringing to life the classic movie house experience, as well as offering live music. Recently renovated, you can enjoy quality films and great music in full comfort, thanks to state-of-the-art technology, expanded concessions that includes a full Virginia ABC license, and plush new seating, including box seats.

On the other hand, you’ve got the popular Ashland Farmers Market. Each Saturday morning from May to October (9AM-12PM), locals and visitors alike stop by for some of the freshest locally grown produce and other goods. You’ll find a wealth of in-season fruits and vegetables, of course, but there are also herbs, fresh eggs, local honey, flowers, and even meat, perfect for grilling out at home or creating a special dinner.

Ashland is also a hugely popular destination for cyclists. From novices to the experienced, from city street rides to trail rides, solo or in a group, there’s cycling for everyone in Ashland. The downtown area is a popular rest stop for those who take longer nature trails, but there are also tours of Ashland’s historic neighborhoods and architecture. When you’re done, there is plenty of bike parking and lots of cafes and terraces, perfect for a treat after your ride.

The appeal of Ashland is part of the reason why people are looking into homes in Ashland VA at Hickory Hills, The Reserve. This relatively small community is thoughtfully designed and has a welcoming, family friendly vibe in a lovely setting.
