Walk through the front doors a Governour’s Square townhome in Reston and you will feel like you’ve walked into a Southern Plantation home. You won’t believe that these homes are only about 1,600 square feet — they feel much too spacious and airy to be so small.
These lovely colonial-style townhomes in North Reston were developed in 1968. They are three-level homes with exterior brick construction and about 1,600 square feet of living space. The central common area is a great place for children and dogs to play, and the nearby Reston Association paths are perfect for those who like to walk or run.
The original floorplans were closed concepts–as was the style in the late 1960s. But over the years, some of the owners have remodeled these homes to open them up. In either case, these townhomes are beautiful and comfortable. This year’s Home Tour will feature a Governour’s Square home that has had a spectacular remodel.
This small community of townhouses is on the Lake Anne side of Reston. They are less than a 10-minute walk to Reston Town Center, and close to the Wiehle Metro station.
The neighborhood is also within a few miles of Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Giant, Mom’s Organic Market, and Harris Teeter (Restonians love have choices when it comes to grocery stores).
For those with young children, Governour’s Square is also a quick walk to Lake Anne Elementary School.
