Most of the Reston condominiums built in the 1970’s look nondescript from the outside. There is no way around it—they are boxy and plain. But if you take the time to go inside, you will be pleasantly surprised. Vantage Hill is a wonderful example of this.
Vantage Hill sits on 15 beautifully wooded acres that have been designated a Backyard Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. That’s 15 acres for 152 units or, more than 4,000 square feet per unit.
And then there are the spacious interiors. These may be condominiums, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up space. The units are generally 2 or 3 bedrooms with generous floor plans, ample closets and spacious kitchens. One of the beautiful things about these older condominiums is that most of them have been updated—new kitchens, new bathrooms, and new flooring. It’s the best of both worlds—the solid construction and beautiful landscape of the 70’s with the beautiful interiors and modern designs of today.
Utilities are included in the condo fees. Vantage Hill is located between Reston Town Center and Lake Anne Village Center, with an easy walk to either. It’s about a five-minute walk to Lake Anne Elementary School. Older children attend Langston Hughes Middle School and South Lake High School.
