Architectual Guidelines

Overview

Guidelines are used to regulate the external design, appearance and location of the property within the Association in order to preserve and enhance property values and to maintain a harmonious relationship among the structures within the Association.  These guidelines are intended to maintain the original design, colors, and materials used within the Association. Guidelines cover paint, decks and fences, decorations, signs, and the general additions to the exterior. The Guidelines also contain provisions for applying to the Association for approval to undertake changes.

The detailed Architectural Guidelines are available in Microsoft Word format for your download.

Decorations
Decorative holiday signs/flags are allowed only in cases where they are erected 14 days prior to the holiday and removed 7 days following the holiday.

Signs and Flags
Size: For Sale, security signs, and United States flags all to be less than 18 x 24 inches in size. (Example)
Not permitted: All other signs/flags including, without limitation, rental (for rent), decorative (excluding note above), and political campaign signs.
Additional notes: For sale signs at the entrance are allowed only off subdivision property, (i.e., between the sidewalk and Gallows Rd).

Color Combinations

The table below shows the existing color combinations (in McCormick paint colors) found in Tysons Station Neighborhood.  When the new paint is applied to the exterior of your home, you must use the following based on your existing color combination. Here you can see the color combination by house number for every home in the community. Details for the color combinations can also be found below. Even when using these pre-approved colors, you must still submit an EXPRESS Architectural Modification Form to the board.

**NOTE: While these colors are as close as we can match, care should be taken. Plan to paint one complete surface. Painting over just repaired places or touch-up patches may be obvious due to weathering or slight color changes from these new formulas.
