Sorry I’ve been away from the blog for a bit. August was a CRAZY month for our family. I’m super excited to share some of the details with you soon!
As a first step, we put our Reston house on the market. **Sniff, Sniff** I LOVE this house!
I searched and searched for years for a house. Honestly, I probably looked at 100 houses. So many DC-area houses are federal style—low ceilings, small windows, dark, dark, and dark. If they aren’t naturally dark, you have to have blinds on your windows making your home dark because there is someone -->>thisclose<<--
I grew up in a geodesic dome in Alaska (see here). I needed a unique home with lots of LIGHT. I feel in love with the Wharf, and when this smaller home came on the market… it was mineJ
It was perfect as a photographer! In the middle of an awesome market, and the light is amazing! The living room was the perfect place to kick back with feet up or meet with clients—perfect natural light studio!
So, take a look at some of the photos and the info on the house. I know it is going to be the perfect home for someone as it was for me!
OPEN HOUSE THIS SATURDAY: 1:30 to 4:00 PM
OPEN HOUSE THIS SUNDAY: Noon to 3:00 PM
Address: 11142 Glade Drive, Reston, VA 20191
The updated home has brand new Samsung stainless steel appliances, engineered hardwood floors and carpeting. Additionally, the home boasts a remodeled kitchen, two newly remodeled baths, new decks/ dock, and recently replaced energy-efficient windows. Home includes exclusive accouchements such as antique chandeliers, cathedral and wood-beamed ceilings, a rehabbed fireplace surround from an antique Baltimore estate, and personal bridge over a stream. The home is surrounded by nature trails, local parks and swimming pools.
Stunning views of local lake "The Wharf," and the ability to cast a line from your bedroom or private deck/ dock. The boat conveys! Unlike all other Reston lakes, residents enjoy swimming, ice skating, fishing, and boating in the local lake.
With the extremely low cost of ownership, this home is perfect for the homebuyer looking to move in, be styling, and be near it all. For more info: see here!
