Reston Real Estate: Get To Know Brookshire Cluster

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

With its large green space-to-house ratio (Five acres to 26 homes), Brookshire Cluster is a magnet for young families. Being a cul-de-sac inherently makes for a warm and cozy community that is safe for children to run and play.

Built in 1964 and 65, Brookshire Cluster is one Reston’s original clusters. These two- and three-bedroom homes feature an average of 1,500 square feet of living space. As an all-electric cluster association, Brookshire was one of the first clusters to add underground wiring for all utilities (stable through the worst storms) and FIOS for broadband and cable options.

This small townhome community is surrounded by lush green foliage, magnificent old oak trees, interconnecting paths and recreational areas. It borders tennis courts, a volleyball court and sprinkler park on one side and Lake Anne Village Center on the other.

Brookshire is also designated a Natural Wildlife Habitat Status. Residents take pride in this community, and bi-annual cluster cleanups where all members help maintain the landscape and beauty of the neighborhood are well attended—the fact that this is one of the friendliest neighborhoods in Reston probably adds to that!
