Reston Real Estate: Spotlight On South Shore

Reston Real Estate column banner

This is a sponsored post by Eve Thompson of Reston Real Estate.

Ask anyone who lived in Reston in the 1960s and 70s what the most “exclusive” neighborhood was, and they’ll likely say South Shore Drive and Fairway.

Why? Because each custom-designed single family home is beautiful, the streets are tree-lined, and you float down to Lake Anne Plaza on your private boat.

Almost 50 years later, it is still one of the most tranquil and idyllic neighborhoods in Reston. And the variety of architecture makes it one of the most unique, and the proximity to Lake Anne and Reston Town Center make one of the most desirable.

The neighborhood consists of three-to-four bedroom homes built between 1965 and 1970. Most are Contemporary style with hardwood floors and plenty of windows (the better to gaze upon the lake).

Fairway Drive is off Wiehle Avenue, between the two North Shore Drives (for those who don’t know, North Shore is a horseshoe). South Shore Drive sits on Lake Anne, and residents have private dock privileges — and most take advantage of that with private boats that they take to concerts and events at Lake Anne Plaza.

Children attend Lake Anne Elementary, Langston Hughes Middle and South Lakes High School. It’s an easy walk to Lake Anne Plaza or Tall Oaks Village Center, and a quick hop over to Reston Town Center. South Shore and Fairway are also just minutes from the Toll Road the new Reston Metro Center.

There are two active listings on South Shore Drive; Autumn is a perfect time to take walk around Lake Anne, and to stop and admire this charming neighborhood.
