The Reston Home Tour returns on Oct. 17 with a new perspective on six Reston homes.
The theme for the tour’s 14th year is “Spaces Reimagined.” The six Reston homes featured for 2015 have been “altered and reimagined with creativity and inspiration to reflect their owners’ visions,” home tour organizers said.
The tickets to the self-guided tour are now on sale ($25 prior to Oct. 10; $30 from Oct. 10-Oct. 17 and anytime online. Tickets for groups of 10 or more are $20 each.
Proceeds benefit the Reston Historic Trust and Museum.
Here’s a sneak peek at the homes:
After 30 years and two renovations, the owners of this art-filled home overlooking Hidden Creek Country Club course still call it “ongoing.”
Lake Newport Road
Home 1 — This is the home of an interior designer, who was able to alter the spaces to take full advantage of the views of Lake Newport. The owners added stepped terraces, a water feature and a gas fire pit cocktail table.
Home 2 — The owner and founder of KPA Design Group wanted a house with great bones in a beautiful setting, and one that was “in need.” The owners altered some of the floor plans, adding organic materials, ledge stone, wood cabinetry and flooring, warmed and naturalized the interior.
Check out the lifestyle at one of Reston’s newest luxury rentals. Public spaces at The Harrison include an indoor lap pool with spa, a cycle-spinning, yoga and Pilates room, a fitness center with cardio equipment and a rooftop club and pool with an outdoor prep and grilling area.
Turtle Pond Drive
This home has Reston’s only residential cinema — complete with a Marilyn Monroe bathroom.
This renovation began within minutes of ownership. Tedious, painful and toxic (and ongoing for four months) is how the owners describe removing the popcorn and decades of paint to expose the beautiful, modern concrete slabs that are now their ceiling.
When builder Klingbill constructed this traditional home, he separated each space with doors and walls, as was the fashion in 1968. Reston’s Synergy Design and Construction had a another idea, and today’s version is open, spacious and contemporary.
