The Old Westbury Cluster consists of a group of 58 single-family homes built in the early 80’s by Fairfield Homes on the south side of Reston, Virginia (population 63,226 per the 2020 census). Thirty-eight homes are on Cobblestone Lane, and twenty are on Salt Kettle Way. The two streets back to a small Reston park where many like to walk their dogs, play, and socialize. In the corner of the park is a tot lot.
All the homes are modeled after New England’s historic ‘salt box’ homes, so the houses, as they age, continue to feel as historical as when they were new. In that sense, they are timeless.
Paths connect the two streets to the park; OWCA neighbors and kids are often seen socializing on each other’s streets. Lake Thoreau is five minutes away by foot, and the South Lakes Shopping Center less than a ten-minute walk.
Terraset Elementary is a short and safe walk from OWCA, Langston Hughes Middle School, and South Lakes High School, about five minutes away.
Adding to all the above conveniences, two major exits of the Dulles Toll Rd and the Wiehle Avenue Metro Station are five minutes away by car. Reston is nearly the same length of drive away from Arlington, Bethesda, Fairfax, and Leesburg. So, your commute will likely still be reasonable if you change jobs. Given all of this, it’s no wonder that people fall in love with this neighborhood and stay for a long time!
