I’ve lived in Reston for years, and I’m still surprised sometimes when I come across a charming townhome community that is new to me. Pinecrest Cluster is one of those places. It’s a little off the beaten track, which is perfect for anyone who wants to access to the bustle of Reston without being in the middle of it. The best part of this community for young families is how affordable it is—these homes offer so much to young families starting out and some of the lowest prices in Reston.
Located off Glade Drive, near Dogwood in South Reston, Pinecrest Cluster is a diverse community of 220 townhouses. Built in 1973, these wood-sided homes have two or three bedrooms, and most are three-levels. Most of the units have been remodeled, and feature large windows and an open, airy feel. And each unit has access to two assigned parking spaces (which is not always the case with home built in the 1970s).
Great news for young families: the cluster recently installed a new, state-of-the-art tot lot—which is sure to become THE gathering place for families in the nice weather. Dogwood Pool is close by; another great feature for young families. Like most communities in Reston, the common areas are well maintained, and wooded areas make you feel like you live in the forest.
Pinecrest Cluster is just off Reston Parkway, a few short miles for Reston Town Center, Hunters Woods Village Center, and the Dulles Toll Road.
