Lakeside Living in North Reston

North Reson VA Lake LifeWe love our lakes in Reston, and we love the being near all of the amenities Reston has to offer. The Lake Newport area of North Reston delivers both — whether you want a contemporary or Colonial single family home, or a spacious patio home, or even condos.

Whatever style of home you want, your neighborhood focal point is Lake Newport, a 12-acre man-made lake built in 1981. On any beautiful day, you'll find residents canoeing and fishing in the lake, or using the approximately 1-mile walking path that loops the lake and takes you on a tour of the neighborhood.

The Lake Newport neighborhood is fairly large and divided into several smaller sub-neighborhoods. Town and patio homes can be found at Hemingway, while large, luxurious single-family homes are located in the Newport, Greenwich Point, BelCastle, Newport Shores, and Newport Cove neighborhoods. All of the homes were built in the 80s and 90s. Here is a rundown of the sub-neighborhoods:

  • Lake Newport Road: This neighborhood is located at the eastern end of Lake Newport Road off North Village Road. Many of the 15 lovely custom-built 3- to 5-bedroom single-family homes are direct lakefront.
  • Newport Shores: Located on Waterfront Road off Center Harbor Drive, this neighborhood has 30 multi-level 3- to 5-bedroom patio homes, of which 25% are direct lakefront.
  • Newport: On Regatta Lane off the Baron Cameron end of North Village Road, this neighborhood has 30 multi-level 3- to 5-bedroom patio homes. About 20% are direct lakefront.
  • Newport Cove: This lovely neighborhood on Newport Cove Lane off the Baron Cameron end of North Village Road has 8 multi-level 3- to 5-bedroom single-family homes, of which 60% are direct lakefront.
  • Hemmingway: At Hemingway Court off Center Harbor Drive, this neighborhood offers a combination of 25 multi-level 3- to 5-bedroom patio homes and 50 townhomes. About 15% of the townhomes are direct lakefront.
  • Greenwich Point: At Greenwich Point Road off Center Harbor Drive, this neighborhood has about 25 lovely multi-level 3- to 5-bedroom patio homes, of which 25% are direct lakefront.

Regardless of which sub-neighborhood residents live in, you will find them all enjoying the RA tennis courts and Lake Newport pool (Reston's only Olympic-sized, 50m swimming pool). On gorgeous days, the paths will be filled with people walking over to North Point Village Shopping Center to enjoy a coffee, ice cream, or a great meal or to do their weekly grocery shopping.

Lake Newport is a fantastic area for growing families or those who are ready to downsize—it has something for everyone.
