Neighborhood Lake Audubon


Welcome to Lake Audubon, VA

Unsurprisingly, the largest man-made body of water in Reston harbors some of the most refreshing lakefront properties in the entire community. What’s not so readily apparent about Lake Audubon? The diverse wildlife and recreational attractions wading just below the surface. From its aquatic plants to its waterfowl and fish, the lake creates the perfect backdrop for natural exploration whenever the sun shines. Come fall, the lake is enveloped by weeping willows that burst into different shades of red, brown, and gold, setting the stage for show-stopping photo-ops you can capture all season long.

What You'll Love About Lake Audubon

  • World-Class Boating and Fishing: In case you were wondering, Lake Audubon is one of the most popular fishing spots around — its waters are swimming with bass, bluegill, redear sunfish, black crappie, brown bullhead, and American eel. And while there are no public docks on the lake, anglers can come together on a fishing point just off Twin Branches Road.
  • Picturesque Hiking Trails: Set over 72 wooded acres, The Walker Nature Center is a preserve surrounding Lake Audubon with a network of trails, a picnic pavilion, streams, and gardens. The lake itself is bordered by a 1.7-mile paved trail characterized by dense canopies and commanding water views. Also of peak interest for hikers is the Lake Audubon and Glade Stream Loop, a 6.61-kilometer trail with some off-leash areas, and the Lake Audubon Loop via Turquoise Trail, a 4.74-mile paved trail that follows a stream.

Real Estate in Lake Audubon

Although Lake Audubon's shores are dotted with striking condos, townhomes, patio homes, and single-family homes, real estate here is in limited supply, making it one of the most exclusive areas in Reston. These are some of the most popular dwelling spots around town:

  • There’s Cabots Point, a collection of cedar patio homes nestled on winding cul-de-sacs along the lake — convenient to shopping and schools, yet sheltered from the high-traffic tumult.
  • 33 additional contemporary-style homes are found in South Bay, where plenty of natural light and private access to Lake Audubon converge. In fact, a projected 30% of properties in this cluster are lakefront homes.
  • In Cedar Cove, the majority of 66+ townhomes off South Lakes Drive are cedar-sided, three-story, and built between 1980 and 1989. Also of note? About 20% of the homes in Cedar Cove are direct lakefront properties.
  • Minutes from the Turquoise Trail and Walker Nature Education Center, the Audubon Terrace & Place Clusters house three-level townhomes with classic brick accents. Most of the homes were built between 1983 and 1988, and about 50% of residents enjoy lake access with a private dock.
  • And last but not least: Lake Audubon Terrace is located along Glade Drive, and many of its 56 lakefront townhomes are available in three distinct floor plans to accommodate every lifestyle.
