Many Restonians value living green — they want to minimize their environmental impact as much as possible.
Heating a home with solar energy is one area where people can make an serious difference. That’s why the 35 patio homes that comprise Solaridge Cluster are so coveted. Every house has a solar attic with large, south-facing windows that collect heat on a winter’s day, and a blower and duct system that bring the warmth down to the living levels.
These gorgeous Contemporary homes have more to offer than energy efficiency.
Solaridge Cluster homes have natural cedar siding, feature open floorplans, and have expansive decks and patios. Of the 35 homes, 29 are two-story models and the six homes on the east side of the cluster have walk-out basements.
Despite the large windows, these single-family homes are very private. Your neighbors are close (and it is, in fact, a very tight knit neighborhood), but inside your home you feel like you’re miles away from everything.
The first house was built in 1983. Since the beginning, one of the things cluster residents most enjoy is a small neighborhood is one where everyone knows each other.
The springtime community clean-up and an annual block party foster a sense of community, and many residents have found “best friends” just down the street.
Solaridge Cluster is across the street from South Lakes Village Center and close beautiful trails, the Reston National Golf Course, the Dulles Toll Road, and the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station.
