If you’re an architectural buff and live in the Reston area, you might be interested in the Reston Home Tour on Oct. 15.
The 15th annual tour, which is self-guided, includes six private residences and a stop on the 21st floor at Reston Station’s new BLVD luxury apartments to see the roof terrace and views. The homes include a variety of styles, interior design elements and art collections.
One of the homes on the tour, at 1702 Putter Lane, was designed by Louis Sauer, an architect known more for low-rise, high-density housing developments than individual residences. The current owners purchased the house in 2014 and worked with KUBE Architecture of Washington for a year to design their renovation, followed by a another year of construction. The home has an accordion-style glass wall that opens to transform the deck off the kitchen into a living area as well as numerous contemporary style features and large expanses of glass.
Tour participants can visit the Reston Museum at Lake Anne Village, and the Wine Cabinet in North Pointe Village Center will be offering a wine tasting from 1 to 5 p.m.
The tour, which benefits the Reston Historic Trust and the Reston Museum, takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are $30 online.
