Pet of the Week: Spike

Becky's Pet Care

This is a sponsored post from Becky’s Pet Care, a professional pet care service in Northern Virginia.

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Spike, a terrier mix who enjoys spending time in Reston with his friend Kelli.

Here is what Kelli had to say about him:

He is a super sweet terrier mix at Lost Dog Rescue Foundation. He spends his dogventures with me in Reston and loves walking the trails and enjoying the parks.

Spike is an expert snuggler that LOVES to play fetch with a tennis ball. He enjoys a good snuggle and will keep you warm cuddling with you in bed. Don’t be surprised if he wakes you with kisses in the morning!

Spike spends the majority of his time at Lost Dog Rescue Foundation but can occasionally be found hanging out with his volunteer friend in Reston. He likes to take short walks and has proven to be excellent company while watching football.  Find out more about this handsome little man here.

Reston Real Estate: South Shore and Fairway Drive

This is a sponsored post from Eve Thompson of Reston Real Estate. For a more complete picture of home sales in your neighborhood, contact her on Reston Real Estate.

Ask anyone who lived in Reston in the 60’s and 70’s what the most “exclusive” neighborhood was, and they’ll likely say South Shore Drive and Fairway.

Why? Because each custom-designed single family home is beautiful, the streets are tree-lined, and you float down to Lake Anne Plaza on your private boat.

Almost 50 years later, it is still one of the most tranquil and idyllic neighborhoods in Reston. The variety of architecture makes it one of the most unique and the proximity to Lake Anne and the Town Center make it one of the most desirable.

The neighborhood consists of 3 to 4-bedroom homes built between 1965 and 1970. Most are Contemporary style with hardwood floors and plenty of windows (the better to gaze upon the lake).

Fairway Drive is off Wiehle Avenue, between the two North Shore Drives (for those who don’t know, North Shore is a horseshoe). South Shore Drive sits on Lake Anne, and residents have private dock privileges — and most take advantage of that with private boats that they take to concerts and events at Lake Anne Plaza.

Children attend Lake Anne Elementary, Langston Hughes Middle and South Lakes High School. It’s an easy walk to Lake Anne Plaza or Tall Oaks Village Center and a quick hop over to Reston Town Center. South Shore and Fairway are also just minutes from the Toll Road the new Reston Metro Center.

Autumn is a perfect time to take walk around Lake Anne and to stop to admire this charming neighborhood.
