Hey gang! It's late spring, which can mean only one thing. It's time to pull the CLOSE TO FUTURE METRO STATION signs out of the garage and play everyone's favorite game of earth-toned real estate wheeling and dealing, the High-Low Game(tm)!
First up is this understated 8-bedroom cottage off Personal Injury Lawyers Road on Stoneledge Court. Technically, it's not in Reston proper, but for the buying price, you could probably spring for a nonresident pool pass or six. Reduced (!!) to a mere $3,999,000, the portico of this "country club style residence" (or "embassy style residence," the breathless listing copy calls it both) will be a perfect place to stand, cocktail in hand, and make sure the lawn service does a decent job edging the shrubs, or whatever it is that lawn services do.
On the, shall we say, "other" side of the spectrum is this charmer on Northgate Square. For $139,900, you don't get much in the way of breathless real estate prose beyond the fact that the unit "backs to trees," but this next photo is what those of us not in the real estate business like to call "a deal sealer":
