When Andrea Abrams moved to Reston several years ago, she wanted a spacious condominium close to her work where she could become part of a vibrant community. She found the perfect spot in Chestnut Grove Condominiums, located off Wiehle Avenue.
“I love the fact that there are people here that have lived in the neighborhood since the beginning — that says a lot about our little enclave,” said Abrams.
She also loves the fact that it’s quiet and serene, and that it’s hidden in the trees (when they have leaves). But her absolute favorite thing about Chestnut Grove is that she’s steps away from the W&OD Trail — making running and biking easy.
Completed in 1972, Chestnut Grove Condominiums has 226 units ranging from one to four bedroom (although the majority have two bedrooms). Although it is a large complex, it does feel private being nestled in the woods. In fact, the complex backs up to Lake Fairfax Park.
Other features include designated parking, an on-site pool, and playground. It is about a half-mile from the future Wiehle-Reston East Metro stop, which will make commuting via Metro a breeze. It’s also close to Reston Town Center, Lake Anne Plaza, and all of the recreation facilities Reston has to offer.
If you are looking for a large, comfortable condo in a welcoming community, Chestnut Grove is worth a look.
