When most people think of condo living in Reston, they think of the high-rise buildings in and around Reston Town Center. Guess what? Within a half mile of Reston Town Center, you can find a condominium community of townhouses.
That’s right. Townhouses. Ivy Oak Cluster is the perfect place for anyone who wants the ease of condo living — that is, someone else to take care of all the exterior maintenance — without living in a high rise.
Ivy Oak Cluster was built in 1970-71 and consists of 96 two-story, three- or four-bedroom townhomes. Each has a great backyard space, many of which are fenced. The neighborhood also has a large common space with a wonderful playground.
Ivy Oak is located off North Shore Drive, close to Temporary Road. There is a secret path (at one time a service road) between the cluster and the Fannie Mae building. The secret path means leads to Old Reston Avenue and the W&OD Trail, making a walk over to Reston Town Center quick and easy.
Ivy Oak is a gem, especially for families with young children (they will love the large playground!). And, not only can you walk to Reston Town Center,
the cluster is close to both Whole Foods and Harris Teeter and has easy access to the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station.
Children attend Lake Anne Elementary School, which is just one mile down the street, Langston Hughes Middle School and South Lakes High School.
