Luxurious condominiums to rival upscale urban homes in Washington and New York are becoming part of the

sales mix at Reston Town Center, where residents can stroll to shops, a movie theater and an outdoor concert pavilion that becomes a picturesque ice-skating rink during the winter.

Dining at Reston Town Center includes elegant gourmet fare at Market Street Grill, Morton’s, and McCormick and Schmick; ethnic delights at the Big Bowl, Rio Grande, Paolo’s and Penang; and classic American fare at Clyde’s, Pizzeria Uno and the American Tap Room.

Three coffeehouses offer more places to relax with friends or with a good book, and the wrought-iron tables set under the trees and beside the fountain draw people any day the temperature climbs above 60 degrees, when they can be seen enjoying treats from Panera or Lee’s Ice Cream.

To live within strolling distance of the mixed-use development of Reston Town Center also means that residents can walk to the Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park and miles of Reston paths and trails.

Renaissance Centro LLC, a recently established division of the luxury-home developer Renaissance Housing Corp., will oversee multifamily developments including the Carlton House on the corner of Reston Parkway and Sunset Hills Road across from Reston Town Center.

Originally planned as a luxurious apartment complex, the Carlton House is now beginning sales as a condominium building with 296 homes for sale.

The building is now under roof. Home deliveries are anticipated to begin by year’s end.

The homes will range in size from about 700 to 1,600 square feet, with base prices from the high $100,000s to the $700,000s. Controlled-access underground parking is available for residents, with surface parking available for guests.

The 13-story Carlton House will offer views of Reston Town Center and beyond to the Blue Ridge Mountains, along with amenities designed to rival those of a sophisticated hotel.

A landscaped front-entrance plaza including a pond with a fountain offers a quiet yet elegant spot for greeting friends on fine days.

On the lobby level, residents will enjoy the convenience of an in-house cafe, free daily continental breakfast and on-site concierge services.

The Carlton House’s health suite includes a yoga and low-impact-exercise room, an exercise room, free weights, showers and saunas.

The business center will feature a meeting or conference room, computers, a high-speed printer, a fax machine and a scanner.

The rooftop of the Carlton House will feature a recreation and entertainment area including an outdoor pool and terrace, a dining room and outdoor dining area, and an outdoor barbecue.

The Carlton Club will include a billiards room, a party room, a two-way fireplace, multimedia flat-screen televisions and a catering kitchen for the residents.

The studio, one-, two- or three-bedroom condominiums at the Carlton House will continue the upscale trend with features such as kitchens with sleek, upscale appliances and ceramic-tile floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, generous balconies, high-speed Internet wiring and master suites with walk-in closets.

Just 10 Fairfax model homes will be available — a three-bedroom, two-bath home with two balconies and a spectacular location on the curving corner of the Carlton House.

The Fairfax model, the largest in the building, includes a foyer with two walk-in closets leading into a hall opening onto the curving 28-by-18-foot living and dining area.

On one side of this home is the first master bedroom, which has a balcony also accessible from the living and dining area. This master suite includes a walk-in closet and a large private bath with an oversize shower.

The second master suite has a balcony shared with the third bedroom and includes a walk-in closet plus private access to the hall bath. This home also includes a laundry closet and a kitchen with a pantry.

The Newport model, with 1,161 square feet, features two master-bedroom suites with walk-in closets, two full baths, an open living and dining room, and an enclosed sunroom with windows on three sides in place of a balcony.
