Among the many unusually tempting amenities available at Linden Springs, a new luxury condominium development in Reston, perhaps the most delectable is the demonstration kitchen in the renovated manor house, which is the focal point of the community.

The circa 1900 Federal-style manor house will be the setting for gourmet cooking classes and wine tasting events, and the building also has six private guest suites to accommodate overnight guests of the residents.

The Manor House includes a 2,000-square-foot covered porch overlooking the Linden Springs gardens. The property — more than 5 acres — will include three contemporary-style condominium buildings with a total of 43 homes, with each building created of granite, slate, brick and fieldstone.

The property includes some of the original estate trees, 100-year-old boxwood gardens, vegetable and herb gardens, walking paths and sitting areas.

A gazebo, which is the oldest standing structure in Reston, overlooks a pond, while a cabana in the boxwood gardens provides a space for outdoor entertaining with a warming kitchen, a bar, a barbecue grilling area and patio seating.

Other amenities at Linden Springs include a fitness center with an exercise swimming pool, fitness equipment and a yoga/Pilates space. Two interior parking spaces are included with each home, and private garage units are also available.

Residents will be able to take advantage of one-site services such as automotive cleaning and detailing, a personal chef, an in-home personal trainer, an in-home personal salon, housekeeping and pet care services.

Buyers can customize their homes with the assistance of an interior designer, architect, wardrobe designer and kitchen cabinet designer.

Each of the homes has 1,750 to more than 4,000 finished square feet, with preconstruction prices ranging from $995,000 to more than $3,000,000. The homes have two to four bedrooms and 21/2 to 31/2 baths, with dens, offices, libraries, great rooms and full-size laundry rooms. Monthly condominium fees range from $947 to $2,084.

The 21 different floor plans at Linden Springs have been designed so that many of the homes have as much as three walls of glass. The development has seven elevators, which provide private and semiprivate access to the homes

Each home has a private terrace or balcony.

Other standard features include granite counters in the kitchen, baths and laundry room; stone, tile and wood flooring; high ceilings, custom-designed cabinets and millwork, and a master bath with a tub, dual vanities and a large shower.

One four-bedroom home with 4,729 square feet, at 404 Bowman Court, features a private elevator lobby opening into the open dining room and great room, which faces a gently curving wall of glass.

The great room has a fireplace. Adjacent to the dining area is the center-island kitchen, which has a door to one balcony and is open to a gathering room with a glass door to a larger balcony.
