Reston Real Estate: Get to Know Walkable West Market

This is a sponsored post by Eve Thompson of Reston Real Estate. It does not reflect the opinion of Reston Now.

Why are Europeans so fit? In part, because they walk everywhere.

Reston in general was model off of that European idea, and is a pedestrian-friendly place. The West Market community in North Reston is a perfect example, with grocery stores, restaurants, a movie theater, and anything else you could need just steps from the front door (even Target is walking distance).

westmarketWest Market comprises two condo communities: Madison Park Condominiums and Lincoln Park Condominiums. Madison Park has 122 condominium units (24 of which are townhouses) within seven buildings. The Lincoln Park community has 104 luxury, two-story townhome-style condos.

Five different builders came together to create this architecturally diverse community. Most people first notice the rounded exteriors that are unlike anything else in Reston.

Spacious common areas include a clubhouse, which includes a main hall and kitchen for meetings and gatherings, a fitness center and sauna, and an outdoor pool.

This neighborhood was built in the late 1990s, just a few steps from Reston Town Center. That means dozens of restaurants, shops, and entertainment are next door.

In addition, Trader Joe’s and Harris Teeter are close by, and the W&OD trail and YMCA are practically in the backyard. You don’t need a car to live here, but if you do have one it is a quick hop onto Fairfax County Parkway and the Dulles Toll Road.

West Market is a great choice for anyone who wants to live in the Reston Town Center area without actually being in the Town Center.

He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
