Reston Real Estate: The High-Low Game, and One 'Healthy' House

Hey, gang! It's time to grab your maps and look for the "Honey, Stop the Car" signs sprouting along our earth-toned community's most prestigious roadways, as we play yet another round of everyone's favorite game of Reston real estate wheeling and dealing, the High-Low Game(tm)!

We start with this breathtaking "private oasis" on Burgee Court overlooking Lake Audobon, with lots of fancy windows and decks and whatnot -- all for a mere $1.495 million.

We know what you're saying -- "That's all well and good, but for that kind of scratch, the place better have a conversation pit."

There you go.

We're always happy when the most expensive house on the market in Reston isn't a soulless McMansion fronting Rt. 7, so it's all good. Besides, the mortgage is just $6,105 a month. Maybe if we sell a couple more of those fancy Google Ads to the "Who's Your Baby's Daddy?" people, we'll be in the ballpark.

(We love it when agents use lots of 8s in their arbitrary pricing, presumably because the number eight is associated with good luck in Asian cultures, but we digress.) This townhouse on Pyrenees Court has a new vanity and is apparently "healthy," according to the breathless marketing prose. As opposed to the tubercular one down the street, we suppose.

Well, that's all the time we have this week. Tune in next time for the Reston High-Low Real Estate Game, where it's always a great time to BUY BUY BUY!
