Round Hill welcomes its newest HeroHome recipients

Just in time for the holiday season, Heroes Lane in Round Hill is home to its first residents.

The Davenport family moved into their new three-bedroom home built by HeroHomes Loudoun this week.

Staff Sergeant Jarrad Davenport, his wife Latoya and their three sons are the new owners of the five-acre property, which is adjacent to the W&OD Trail, and built by HeroHomes with the support of dozens of local businesses and volunteers.

In 2011, Davenport – who served 18 years in the U.S. Navy and Army – received injuries from multiple IRAM rocket attacks at an outpost in Iraq. He continued on with his mission and was transferred to Baghdad, and then spent four years at Walter Reed National Military Center in Bethesda.

Davenport said he still has challenges.

“I'm always in pain and trying to figure out how to mitigate the pain level while not on medication. I believe my body will adapt to it,” he said.

HeroHomes, which is spearheaded by local resident Jason Brownell, began construction on the Davenport's home in Feb. 2017. Like the first HeroHome built in Purcellville, they have received an outpouring of support from local businesses to help make this dream possible for the Davenport family.

The first floor features an open concept design with family room, kitchen and three bedrooms. The second level has a bonus room and office, as well as an additional bathroom.

The landscaping was designed by Jason Dengler of Wildwood Landscaping, with installation and materials provided by Blake Landscaping, Amazing Earth, Luck Stone, Loudoun Milling, Premier Turf and Merrifield Garden Center.

“The emotional reaction is very overwhelming, and it is Christmas time, so what an amazing gift for our family,” Davenport said.

Davenport said HeroHomes and the community have been truly supportive and he cannot give them enough praise for what they have done in helping the family move forward.

For the Davenport family, this will truly be a Christmas to remember.

“We have our Christmas tree in my wife's truck ready to unload,” Davenport said.
