Condominiums are a great option for people who want a nice home, but not the responsibility of maintaining a yard or exterior. Reston has many options for condo seekers, but one of my favorites is Northgate. Located at on North Shore Drive and Wiehle Avenue (near Baron Cameron), Northgate is one of the largest condo neighborhoods in Reston with spacious, quiet units. Mature trees offer shade and privacy, and Reston Association walking paths make it easy to set off on adventures around town. In fact, Northgate is just a short walk to Lake Anne and to the Reston dog park.
The complex has more than 400 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom condos. All of the buildings have brick facades, and most are three stories. The 1 bedroom units have a single bath and the 3 bedroom units offer 2 baths. A few of the 2 bedroom units have 2 baths, although most of them have 1. The condos were originally rental units, but in the 1980s they were remodeled and converted to condos--most of them are updated with modern fixtures and appliances. The complex has its own central heating and cooling plant, so the Northgate Condominium Association fees include coverage for heating, cooling and electricity in addition to water and sewer.
Northgate is a 5-minute walk from two metro bus routes, and about a 5-minute drive to Reston Town Center, multiple grocery stores, and the Wiehle Ave. toll road entrance.
If condominium living is what you're looking for, come explore Northgate. You'll find the combination of well-designed units and fantastic location a winning one!
