A development named to honor, and integrate Ashland's past into our community's future.
Originally built in 1910, many were surprised the historic home known for ties to the Helman family was given a Helman Street address despite its location, about a quarter of a mile off the street.
Overtime, the winding driveway was named for other streets as the neighborhood grew, new homes were built and Helman School was constructed. Fruit orchards that inhabited the property once produced such an abundance of fruit they were canned and stored in the basement to offer residents a generousfood supply during the cold winter months.
In early 2018, renovations of this land will commence with local green building company, Taylored Elements Construction. Reviving this historic property is an exciting project for the TEC team. Being an Ashland native, TEC's President Kyle Taylor, recognizes the significance of this project.
In tribute, each of the eight home designs will be inspired by the Northwest and feature surviving elements from the historic property with reference to where the feature was located within the original historic home.
The plans also include Earth Advantage Platinum Home Certifications, high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, full landscaping, customizable features and views of Mount Ashland and Grizzly Peak.
