There are many pros to townhouse living — for me, the common space is one of the big ones. It’s nice to have lots of green space that somebody else maintains. For many people, though, privacy is one of the detractors of a townhouse community.
Arbor Glen Cluster in Reston is one of those rare neighborhoods that has it all — lovely architecture, plenty of common space, and privacy. Lots of privacy.
Miller & Smith designed this community of 44 townhouses to maximize privacy. The townhouses are arranged in groups of four to six in a “Z” row, which means that each house feels more private. A private, one-way road loops the cluster, adding to the charm of the neighborhood. While Arbor Glen is right off busy Lake Newport Road, and close to Reston Parkway (only the soccer fields stand between the two), the neighborhood is exceptionally quiet.
These spacious three- and four-bedroom townhomes were built between 1986 and 1988. Nestled in a wooded area, Arbor Glen is less than a five-minute walk to Northpoint Village Center and Lake Newport pool (Reston’s only Olympic-sized pool). Reston Town Center is less than two miles away.
If you’re looking for the privacy of a single family home, the convenience of a townhome community, and easy access to shopping, schools, and recreation, then Arbor Glen is the neighborhood for you.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
