10th Annual Reston Home Tour

From Reston Home Tour:


Reston, VA – Reston Historic Trust presents the 10th annual Reston Home Tour on Saturday, October 15, 2011 from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The self-conducted tour offers exclusive viewing of six outstanding private homes located in Reston’s renowned neighborhoods and clusters. Each destination features inspiring interior design and architecture. A seventh stop on this year’s tour is the historic DeLong Bowman house, a pre-Reston, ‘antebellum-style’ home that was a residence for the family of Virginia Gentleman Bourbon fame, and later, for Reston founder Robert E. Simon, Jr. Throughout the day in the Bowman house, a Historical Perspective will be presented by Reston Historic Trust, and from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., complimentary tastings of Virginia Gentleman products will be offered by EKKO Title and Bowman Distillery’s master distiller and historian, Joe Dangler. There will also be a prize drawing for an original place setting of Reston china, which was used in the Bowman house during Reston’s development days.


This year’s Reston Home Tour theme, “Finding the Upside of Down”, summarizes how various changes have brought positive results to each home and the owners’ lifestyles – downsizing, downturns, downstairs, and more. (Examples provided with home descriptions, below.)
