If you are looking for a charming and friendly neighborhood, Chatham Colony Cluster in the Lake Anne area of Reston is a perfect fit.

Chatham Colony, a small neighborhood of about 45 Colonial-style townhomes, is the kind of neighborhood where neighbors know each other.

1539 Chatham ColonyThe townhomes have brick exteriors, shuttered windows, two designated parking spaces and wooded backyards.

Like many Reston homes built in the 1970s, each has beautiful hardwood floors and large windows. With three bedrooms and full basements, each home offers plenty of space for growing families and empty nesters alike.

Perhaps one of the best features is that this neighborhood sits right off Moorings Drive and North Shore Drive, just a five-minute walk to Lake Anne Village Center and a five-minute drive to the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station.

Although not directly on  Lake Anne, the cluster does have a private dock for those with canoes, kayaks or small sailboats. The cluster also offers easy access to the Reston Association trail that circles Lake Anne, making walks around the picturesque lake easy.

Neighborhood children are zoned for Forest Edge Elementary, Langston Hughes Middle School, and South Lakes High School. Reston Association’s North Shore Pool is an easy walk across Lake Anne Plaza, and the Lake Anne sprinkler park is practically in the neighborhood’s backyard.
