"A mix of homes, businesses and trees"

Ashtree Dr. is a short road that forms an arc between lower Hamilton Ave. and the bottom of Kirby Rd. It's mostly residential with older, well kept homes and African American residents. There are also a few businesses along the street and a large section of trees. If you glance to the north while driving along Ashtree Dr. you'll probably notice a large apartment complex that sets back from the street on the northern side. The entrance to the apartment complex is on Hamilton Ave.

There's not a consistent flow of heavy traffic on Ashtree, but it's a convenient shortcut from busy Hamilton Ave. to Kirby, so you might find a bit of traffic sometimes. Fortunately the homes on Ashtree have large yards that keep the road at a distance.

Restaurants, and entertainment

There's not much to do on Ashtree Dr, but the street intersects with busy Hamilton Ave. and a hundred yards or so north you'll find Six Acres Bed and Breakfast: http://sixacresbb.com/index.htm . The B & B was built around 1850 and was once a stop for escaped slaves on the way to freedom. These days the owner welcomes guests, hosts private parties and occasional jazz concerts and dinners.

Further up Hamilton Ave. you'll find a few long time restaurants like Larosa's, Goodies Barbecue and College Hill Coffee Company. Ashtree Dr. borders the northern edge of Northside, which puts it within about a mile of all those trendy Northside businesses and restaurants.

Ashtree Dr. is about 10 minutes from Mount Airy Forest where they have picnic areas, an arboretum, horseback riding and more. It's about 5 minutes from the College Hill Recreation Center on Belmont where they have a gym, a meeting room, soccer field, fitness center and more.
