Reston Real Estate: Is Townhome Living for You?

This is a sponsored post by Eve Thompson of Reston Real Estate.

There is every type of dwelling available in Reston — from single family home to condos, from large to small… and everything in between.

11503 HEarthstoneDespite the fact I live in a condo, I always associate Reston with townhomes. Perhaps that is because we have such diverse townhome communities — we have close to a 140 separate townhouse clusters. That’s a lot.

Many people who move to Reston have never considered living in a townhome. They perceive them as dark and small with little privacy from neighbors. Then they visit some of the townhome communities and change their minds.

Our townhome clusters are wildly varied from the comfortable and modest to over-the-top luxurious. Many are on our lakes or golf course. All have beautiful, well-kept common areas.

So is a Reston townhome right for you? Reston townhomes offer a wide range of housing options for almost every price point. You’ll often find neighborhoods that are a combination of young families, singles, or couples who have downsized. It’s a wonderful, eclectic mix. And for busy professionals, you have the bonus of a lovely neighborhood that you don’t have to care for — your cluster will maintain the common property!

If you’ve never considered townhome living because you’re worried about the size, the light or living in such close proximity, maybe you should reconsider, there is a lot of upside to this housing style. And no place does it as well as Reston.
