REAL ESTATE- WHAT'S GOING DOWN- 310 6th Street SW
ADDRESS: 310 6th Street SW, Charlottesville
YEAR BUILT: 1890
SIZE: 1,358 sq. ft.
LAND: 0.112 acres
OWNER: Brenda Washington
DEMO PERMIT DATE: Permit to demolish entire structure applied for on 10/05/2007. CONTRACTOR: unknown
NOTE: Demolition of this property began without a permit (photo taken 10/5/07), and a stop work order was placed on the project October 1. Ms. Washington, who recently inherited the property, immediately applied for a demo permit and has agreed to cease work until the permit is issued. Because the house is not designated historic on a local, state, or federal level, no charges will filed against Ms. Washington.
The house was purchased in 1973 for $8,500. According to city preservation planner Mary Joy Scala, there are a few over-100-year-old houses in Fifeville listed as IPPs [individually protected properties]. However, despite a recent survey that listed its construction date as 1890, this house is not one of them.
