Reston Real Estate: Want to Live on Lake Thoreau? Try Purple Beech or Upper Lake

I love contemporary architecture and Lake Thoreau, so it’s no surprise that Purple Beech Drive and Upper Lake Drive are two one of my favorite streets in Reston. While on opposite sides of the lake, both are typical Reston single-family home communities with an organic, natural feel to the wood-sided homes. In addition to lake access, the homes are also on generous, wooded plots. You feel like you’re at a resort!

As with most single-family home communities, the sizes and layouts are all different. Typically, though, they are 4-bedroom, multi-level homes. They have beautiful wooded yards, and the entire neighborhood is well landscaped and attractive. Purple Beech is a cul-de-sac and Upper Lake is a horseshoe, which means both are quiet and peaceful — great places to let your children play outside and enjoy nature.

While not all of the homes have direct lakefront access to Lake Thoreau, they do all have full lake access and privileges. Imagine paddling on the lake during the summer, or enjoying a picnic on your own floating barge (a favorite among many people who live on Reston’s lakes). A lovely 2-mile walking path circles the lake. In nice weather, lake residents make full use of it, walking to South Lakes Village Center to enjoy a meal or simply going for a run.

Terraset Elementary, Langston Hughes Middle School and South Lakes High School are close by. Other nearby amenities include the Walker Nature Education Center, Reston Regional Golf Course, Wiehle-Reston East Metro station (about 1 mile), Reston Town Center, pools and tennis courts.

These are the kind of streets you dream of: close to anything you want to do, but also perfect if you just want to hang out in your beautiful home.
