Reston is celebrated for its distinctive contemporary homes, though they are a rare find. A stunning example has just come onto the market, beautifully designed to accommodate today's needs--ample entertainment areas both indoors and out, office space, a cozy recreation room, and a butler's pantry. When you come in through the front door, you are welcomed by a stunning view featuring soaring cathedral ceilings and expansive skylights that stretch across the living and dining rooms, divided by a sculptural double-sided fireplace. The modernized kitchen boasts extensive countertop space, stainless steel appliances, an eat-in area, and a butler's pantry--perfect for storing small appliances. The large, well-lit office is right next to the butler's pantry (think of it as a coffee bar zone). The upper level introduces a biophilic design that becomes apparent as you reach the top of the stairs. It includes a balcony off the main bedroom for relaxing, hardwood floors, a walk-in closet, and a separate sink and vanity area. The bathroom gets a prolific amount of sunlight with the window and skylight; you barely need to use the lights during the day. The second upper-level bedroom features a cedar-lined closet and hardwood floors. On the lower level, you will find two bedrooms, a full bathroom, a spacious laundry room, two storage closets, and a family/recreation room equipped with a theatre system. There are two decks: one accessible from the main level and a larger one from the lower level. A whole house fan efficiently cools the home by creating a suction effect, almost eliminating the need for air conditioning. Improvements: The kitchen and primary bathroom were updated six years ago. All appliances (except microwave) and HVAC unit were replaced in the last two years. The laundry appliances are less than a year old. Carpet is brand new. The whole house was just repainted - inside and out!

What stands out about the home's location? Owls Cove Residents have access to a private dock at the end of the cul-de-sac where you can take advantage of paddleboarding, kayaking, canoeing, and fishing! It's .2 miles from Lake Audubon and .5 miles from Lake Thoreau - very accessible to 2 Reston lakes! Capital Bikeshare and paved paths to South Lakes Shopping Center (SLSC) are practically right outside your door. SLSC has a lot to offer: Safeway, CVS, UPS Store, Crest Cleaners, a gas station, a nail salon, Subway, Chipotle, Starbucks and local fav spots - Red's Table, Cafesano, and Lakeside Asia Cafe, and more. It's close to major commuter routes with easy access to the Dulles Toll Road. The Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station is just over a mile and Dulles Airport is less than 10 miles away.
What stands out about Reston? There are 55 miles of paved pathways and natural surface trails that connect facilities, neighborhoods, schools and shopping. More than 700 acres of forest, 50 meadows, and four wetlands provide beautiful vistas and important habitat for local wildlife. Aquatic habitats include four lakes, three ponds and 20 miles of streams. There are 15 pools, 50 pickle ball/tennis courts, and countless ball fields and playgrounds. There is a Nature Center, Community Center, a Performing Arts Center, amazing summer camps and programs for all ages offered throughout the year, two Farmer's Markets, and the list goes on. Reston can't be beat!
