Chatham Colony Cluster is the kind of neighborhood where neighbors get together to watch ball games and children wander freely in and out of each other homes. If you wanted one word to describe this townhouse community in the Lake Anne area of Reston it would be “friendly.”
This is a small cluster of about 45 homes, each of which has a wooded backyard. These colonial style townhomes have brick exteriors, shuttered windows, and two designated parking spaces. With three bedrooms and full basements, each home offers plenty of space for growing families and empty-nesters alike. And like most Reston homes built in the 1970s, each has beautiful hardwood floors and large windows.
This quiet neighborhood sits right of Moorings and North Shore Drive, just a five-minute walk to Lake Anne and a five-minute drive to the new Wiehle-Reston East Metro station. Although not on Lake Anne, the cluster offers easy access to the Reston Association pathway that circles Lake Anne, making walks around the picturesque lake easy.
Children attend Forest Edge Elementary, Langston Hughes Middle School, and South Lakes High School. The North Shore Pool is an easy walk across Lake Anne Plaza, and the sprinkler park is practically in the neighborhood’s backyard.
