Reston is known for beautiful green spaces, and neighborhoods like Golf Course View Cluster are the reason. These 200 townhomes are situated in the middle of Reston National Golf Course, surrounded by wooded areas. Quite simply, this neighborhood is lovely.
Built in the early 1970s, the cluster is comprised of Golf Course View and Golf Course Square. The units are primarily three-bedroom homes, although each end unit has four bedrooms. Located at the end of Golf Course Drive — off of Soapstone (at the Sunrise Valley Drive intersection) — in South Reston, the neighborhood is about one-half mile to the new Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station.
One of the hallmarks of Golf Course View Cluster is the pride every resident takes in their home, in nurturing the mature landscape that surrounds the cluster, and in creating a safe and welcoming community. This is a neighborhood to consider if you want to know your neighbors.
In addition to being surrounded by the golf course, it’s just a short walk over to the Newbridge Recreation Area — swimming pool, tennis courts and basketball court. The short drive to the Dulles Toll Road makes trips to Dulles Airport or into DC a breeze. And, of course, the miles of Reston trails, Reston Town Center, and South Lakes Village Center are also close by.
For families looking for the best that Reston has to offer and a close knit community of neighbors, Golf Course Island Cluster is the perfect place.
