Ashby Heights is a collection of single family homes built by Equity in 2005. Located in the Kingstowne area of Alexandria, these 18 homes make up Ashby Heights Circle and typically include 2-car garages, 4-5 bedrooms and many quality upgrades. The three available models are the Chelsea, Mosby and Quincy. This small knit community is very close to Wegmans and the Hilltop Village Center with its unique restaurants.
