Reston Real Estate: Get to Know Golf Course Island

I think Golf Course Island Cluster is one of Reston’s gems.

From the outside, these contemporary, cedar sided homes look small. But walk inside and it’s like one of those magic tents in Harry Potter–the space just expands. This may be one of the reason’s the community won an architectural design award when they were built in the late 1960s.

There is a lot going on in Golf Course Island Cluster right now. Over the last five years, the original owners have been moving out and young families and young professionals are moving in. As this happens, people are renovating the homes — mostly updating the kitchens. With 188 units, homes come up for sale often; some are fixer-uppers, others have been freshly renovated. Whatever you are looking for, you will find it here.

The hallmark of all are a well-designed space that flows, large closets, and privacy. Yes, privacy in a town house. The cluster is designed so that every home feels private and secluded–you won’t hear your neighbors through the walls.

Much of the cluster backs Hidden Creek Country Club’s golf course, and the main living areas open to the common areas and green space.

The common spaces are beautifully maintained. For the children, there is a new playground with wonderful slides in block 12 (there are 12 blocks in the cluster). The children love it. On most nice afternoons, you will see the neighborhood families sitting on the bench while the children run around the quad in delight. For those with dogs, there are many paths through the neighborhood, and plenty of squirrels to chase.

Each townhome is assigned one carport space, and there is ample open parking for every unit to have a second car. For visitors, there is parking on Links Drive and North Shore Drive.

Golf Course Island is about one mile from the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station, Reston Town Center, and Lake Anne Plaza. There is easy access to the Reston Association pools and other recreation areas.

Prices are ranging here depending on the condition of the home, but for the most part are in the mid $400,000. Check out this beautiful and friendly cluster.
