This is a sponsored column by Eve Thompson of Reston Real Estate. She writes twice weekly on Reston Now.

For those who like a more traditional, colonial style of home, Governor’s Square (aka Governour’s Square) in Reston is the community for you.Governour's SquareDeveloped in the late 1960′s, the Governour’s Square townhomes are three-level homes with exterior brick construction and about 1,600 square feet of living space.

The 29 townhouses are situated on a central common area that is a great place for children and dogs to play. The beautiful open green space surrounded by mature trees lends a kind of Georgetown feel to this popular Reston Cluster. The nearby Reston Association paths are perfect for those who like to walk or run.

In fact, everything about the location of Governour’s Square is great — this small community of townhouses in Reston is less than a 10-minute walk to Reston Town Center and close to the new Wiehle-Reston East Metro station. For those with young children, Governour’s Square is also a quick walk to Lake Anne Elementary School.

Home in this popular neighborhood don’t come on the market often and when they do they go quickly. The average sales price in Governor’s Square is $450,000 and the average days on the market is a blindingly fast six days!
