Welcome to Heather Knoll!

Heather Knoll is a cluster association organized under the laws of Virginia. Built in the early 1990's, it is self-managed, and has some of the lowest association fees of any cluster association in Reston.

History and structure

Heather Knoll Cluster comprises thirteen buildings, each containing four townhouses for a total of fifty-two townhouses, which are located on a cul de sac in the North Point area of Reston, VA. A copy of the original marketing brochure is shown here. Construction was started in 1992 and finished in 1996. There are three different unit designs, Avondale (A), Brookhaven (B), and Camden (C,) and each building contains one A, one B, and two C units, with the C units on each end of the building (plans are in Adobe .pdf format and open in new browser windows).

Reserves

The association By Laws provide for a roofing reserve intended to provide the funding needed to repair, maintain and/or replace roofs on buildings, reserves for paving, curbs and sidewalks, and is one of the few associations that also maintains an individual painting reserve for each homeowner to repaint the buildings approximately every six years. Because each homeowner in a building has a reserve built up when the building needs painting, all units in a building are repainted at the same time, thus keeping the appearance of all units consistent.

Covenants

Each homeowner belongs to the Reston Association, and must sign covenants to follow the design guidelines that have been established for Heather Knoll. Such details as the color of different buildings, the color of their doors, and even the outside light fixtures are all defined in the covenants, and any deviations from the covenants require the approval of the RA Review Board and abutting homeowners.

Fees and services

Association fees and contributions to the painting reserves are billed quarterly, and the association provides many services such as trash collection and maintenance of the grounds that are funded by revenue from the fees. Details are listed on the Services page.
