The ever popular Reston Home Tour is taking place on Saturday, October 19th. The event each year is organized by the Reston Historic Trust.
As we approach Reston's 50th Anniversary, it is important to reflect on the amazing vision of Reston's founder, Robert E. SImon, Jr. who will celebrate his 100th birthday next year. Once labeled "speculative and impractical", he is now celebrated for Reston's success. The owners of this year's homes are also visionaries who have altered and enhanced their spaces and in the process created new and exciting possibilities for their surroundings. The 12th annual tour allows individuals to see behind the facade of these interesting and unusual homes in Reston. Besides the homes featured here, we will have another special stop at Bow Tie Cinemas at Reston Town Center. Two documentary films, one on Public Art in Reston, and the other the trailer for next year's film celebrating Reston's anniversary will be shown at 11 a.m. and again at 2 p.m. followed by discussion with the film-makers.
One of the houses featured in the home tour will be the first house ever occupied in Reston, now occupied by a young man who grew up in Reston, and whose father is a Buddist Monk who did a house blessing for him.
