43608 Ryan Corner Place

This is a house in Ashburn I saw one day during my morning commute. Some kids across the street nearby were playing soccer, but they were preoccupied and I was relatively inconspicuous.

The house was definitely vacant, and there was debris everywhere. Glass jars, plastic ice cream tubs, old magazines, greeting cards, moldy paperback novels, clothing; it was scattered all over the place.

I picked through some of the paper debris, and the most recent date I could find was 1995. Every single room was carpeted with personal effects. Old tax forms. Sketch books. A Gregg Typing manual. Huge piles of clutter in the attic which had obviously been ransacked for anything of value.

The house was owned by Robert Roderick until 2002, and then Salvatore Cangiano in 2003. In 2004, it was sold to a developer. It demolished to make way for the Parkside at Ashburn gated townhome community.
