Reston Real Estate: A long time ago, in a planned community far, far away....


Now here is a swank designer motif Bob Simon could only have dreamed of when he envisioned his New Town out in the woods back in the '60s! This room, and the rest of the Ring Road structure it's attached to, can be yours for a mere $550,000. We especially like how Yoda is standing on the heating register for warmth. Let's just hope that register doesn't connect to an external exhaust port just two meters wide, or you'll never be able to get homeowners insurance with an X-Wing rider.

Little known fact: Every room in Restonian World Headquarters looks exactly like this.

    Are all of the rooms at Restonian World Headquarters themed for "A New Hope" or do you have a "Revenge of the Sith" room?

    Who's your daddy? Who's your daddy? Who's your daddy?

  2. Hmmm...Darth Smyers?

  3. the only problem with Smyers, et al, being compared to the star wars evil empire --

    at least those evil folks were smart, and had a well laid out agenda... you knew exactly where you stood, and what was happening...

    Our folks are the evil version of the keystone cops... clueless...

  4. But they are ready to ink the deal on their 35,000 Taj Mahal at their special board meeting on the 13th. Not to worry -- it will be discussed in executive session, so no need to attend.

    Transparency Smyers? Wanting to listen to your constituents? It's time for you to resign and move on.

    Transparent as lead...

  5. Let's see: 1830 Isaac Newton Square is the Death Star; Bob Simon is Yoda ("Revitalize Lake of Anne must we!"); any number of candidates for Darth Vader. Question is who the good guy who gets to play Luke Skywalker? I'll nominate the editor of this blog.

  6. Actually this property sold for slightly over the asking price of 549,000.00...
