Many neighborhoods say they are Reston’s undiscovered jewel. Cabots Point Cluster in the South Lakes area of Reston is one with a true stake on that claim.
This beautiful community of cedar patio homes borders Lake Audubon, Reston’s largest lake. The neighborhood is so secluded that many people don’t realize there are houses back there.
Warm is the way to describe this Reston lakeside neighborhood. Built in the early- to mid-1980s, these townhomes have a distinctive contemporary design with sharp right angles and sun-drenched cedar siding. Rather than the adjoining walls typical of most townhouse developments, two-car garages attach these units.
The yards are beautifully landscaped, and common areas provide a wooded setting. The homes have one or two decks and are staggered along winding, narrow cul-de-sacs that give the impression of a small village.
Many units have lake views. Access to Cabots Point comes from South Lakes Drive, across the street from South Lakes High School and a quick walk to South Lakes Village Center,
Cabots Point may be close to every activity Reston has to offer (including the new Wiehle-Reston East Silver Line Metro station), but for many residents, lazy evenings on the lake are the leisure activity of choice. Talk to any resident of Cabots Point, and most will tell you they have no intention of ever moving out of the neighborhood.
Homes don’t often come on the market here, so if you see one, jump on the opportunity immediately.

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.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. 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.
