Affordable Housing in VIRGINIA
Affordable Senior Housing in an
Attractive Residential Setting
WINTER HILL APARTMENTS—Located in Falls Church, Virginia—consists of 83 units in an attractive residential setting. Acquired by FCHC Virginia Community Development Corporation (FCHC) in 1987, the Winter Hill Apartments offer quality housing units rented exclusively to senior income-eligible residents with annual incomes at or below 80% of area median income. Residents enjoy Winter Hill’s attractive residential setting in the heart of Falls Church. The location is well within a half-mile walk or local city bus to pharmacies, the post office, public library, banks, shops and other resources, including Metro transportation. The Winter Hill Clubhouse, located on South Virginia Ave, also hosts a wide range of programs, activities, and social events for Winter Hill Apartments residents.
Built in the early 1940s, the Winter Hill Apartments have been rehabilitated several times over the years. Their outside walls are a combination of masonry and brick with vinyl siding on the upper half of second floors. Pitched roofs shingled with asphalt drain into gutters with downspouts. Windows are vinyl-clad, with insulating glass. Winter Hill is comprised of one and two-bedroom units. In 2011, the NHP Foundation acquired FCHC and Winter Hill under its new Affiliates Program.
A recent capital needs study found the buildings to be attractive and in good condition. In 2003, the complex received the highest biannual property management score given in Virginia by a HUD inspection team. The apartment buildings offer handicapped-accessible laundry facilities and on-site parking. Apartments include updated kitchens and bathrooms, frost-free refrigerators, garbage disposals, individually controlled heating and air conditioning, water heaters, thermal windows, and smoke detectors. Many apartments have back porches and balconies. Five units are ADA-compliant, providing access to all residents.
