We envisioned Newport Shores as a whimsical retreat on Lake Newport in North Reston, and designed a contemporary community in the "arts and crafts" style. Impressive feature windows provide dramatic views from the interior and interest to the exterior elevations of these exceptional homes. All of the brick was made from a composite of many types of earth throughout the brickyard and quarry, rather than a single color, enhancing the depth and color variation of the material. The outdoor electrical sconces and chimney caps were hand selected to match the community theme, the front porch columns were hand-routed, and the house numbers were custom fabricated. Even the glass within the entry door was glazed to match the feature window at the rear of the house and to tie the home and community together.

As you drive through Newport Shores notice the many custom details, including the impressive feature windows on the rear elevations and the quaint, often used common area with benches, or "squirrel park", in the center of the community.

Newport Shores is a truly unique community in Reston. The variety of custom building materials and the attention paid to the smallest details make this community something truly special.
