I admit I’m partial to Lake Anne neighborhoods — they are beautiful and convenient to all the amenities Reston has to offer. Lakeside Cluster is a great Reston neighborhood that does not get as much attention as its famous neighbor, Waterview Cluster.
Frankly, the community likes it that way. This is a friendly, quiet, unassuming neighborhood.
Lakeside Cluster has everything all of the neighborhoods that border Reston’s Lake Anne share — access to the lake, a quick walk to Lake Anne Plaza, well-designed homes, many of which are direct lakefront.
Lakeside Cluster was built between 1965 and 1969, and comprises 90 lovely two- and three-level townhouses and patio homes with two to four bedrooms. They also have garages, which makes them different than most of their Lake Anne neighbors. All homes have lake access via a trail to the cluster dock, even if they are not direct lakefront property.
The cluster couldn’t be positioned better. It is located on Greenbriar Road and Orchard Lane off Fairway Drive, which is the south shore of Lake Anne. Fairway Drive provides easy access to both North Shore Drive and Wiehle Avenue.
For families with children, the cluster is an easy walk to Lake Anne Elementary. Children also attend Langston Hughes Middle and South Lakes High School.
For the parents, Lake Side Cluster is only 1.5 miles to the Wiehle-Reston East Station Metro station, and a short hop to Reston Town Center and the Dulles Toll Road. And, of course, a five minute walk to Lake Anne Village Plaza — home of the Reston Farmers Market and several great locally owned restaurants.
