Reston Real Estate: Get to Know Heron House

Heron House, the original Reston condos built in 1966, are still among the most beautiful condominiums in Reston. Sure, I may be biased because I live in Heron House, but I’ve heard other people say this too.

Heron House — a 15-story tower with 66 condominiums, all with concrete balconies — is Reston’s original high-rise. It is situated on the edge of Lake Anne at the south end of Washington Plaza (which residents simply call Lake Anne).

Heron House at Lake AnneThe condos have one- and two-bedroom units with commanding views of the lake and Reston. Sitting on the balcony sipping a glass of wine and looking at the fountain in the lake is one of my favorite things to do.

The contemporary condos are well designed to maximize every inch of space — even the smaller one-bedroom units feel spacious. Perhaps it is the view, or perhaps it is the well-thought-out floor plans. Whatever the magic combination, it works.

Heron House has stood the test of time. The design is as relevant today as it was 50 years ago. And most of the units have been upgraded with new kitchens and baths.

If you live at Heron House, you never really have to leave the neighborhood. Lake Anne boasts several great restaurants, the farmers market, and festivals year round. It’s a wonderful place to live!

It’s also only a one-mile walk (or a quick drive) along gorgeous trails to Reston Town Center, and it’s close to the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station and Dulles Toll Road. What’s not to love?
