DRAT!  TYPO!

Should be:

<VirtualHost host.domain.com:80>
   ServerName host.domain.com
   CustomLog /svn/Admin/logs/access.log combined
   ErrorLog  /svn/Admin/logs/error.log
   SSLProxyEngine on
   ProxyPass / https://host.domain.com/
   ProxyPassReverse / https://host.domain.com/
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost host.domain.com:443>
   [...]
</VirtualHost>

My mistake was the 2nd VirtualHost clause where 80 should be 443:

Now, that's better ;)

Keep in mind that having Apache proxy non-HTTPS queries will mean that the link from the client to the server will NOT be SSL-protected. Traffic from the SVN client to your server will be in the clear.
Sigh,  I tested http://[...] and it appears that SSL certification is not
being requested, so it appears that you are correct.

I will keep trying. If anyone has a (potential) solution, please let me know?

I think you had it with the redirect causing an error in svn. The change to https needs to be done at the request end (AFAIK) so if svn can't/won't do that properly you are better off failing it with a useful error than having the traffic to you be unencrypted.

My opinion only, the client is not working in a good way, break it rather than having it work in an actively BAD way.
