“Living in Reston is like living in a park.” Claude A. Veatch

Reston, VA has been long recognized both nationally and internationally as one of the best places to live because of its wide array of recreational offerings, variety of housing styles, vast amount of parkland, pedestrian access, and proximity to both Washington DC and Dulles International Airport. Residents also express a sense of community and belonging unlike any other community.
“Reston” is a way of life. I have proudly called it HOME since the mid-80’s.

Situated in the heart of the Dulles Corridor — small and large businesses thrive just minutes from Dulles International Airport and only 20 miles from the nation’s capital. And...the Metro is coming - Dulles Metrorail will permanently connect Northern Virginia to the rest of the region, beginning in DC and following the Orange Line through Arlington County, extending through Tysons Corner, Reston, Herndon, Dulles International Airport and continuing into Loudoun County.

Amenities abound here! With 15 outdoor pools, 49 tennis courts (8 of which are clay), four lakes and the 72-acre Walker Nature Education Center sanctuary, summer camps and special events, the selection of ways to play are endless. I haven’t even mentioned the numerous restaurants and amazing shopping yet!

Nature and simple pleasures are REALLY what it’s about here - a walk around the lakes - the laughter of children in the pool - a tennis match with new friends - a walk along one of the community's trails.

I live under a canopy of trees and share that space with deer, raccoons, owls, song-birds a-plenty, etc! My mental vacation is a paddle around Lake Audubon on a sunny day!

The decision has been made – I wouldn’t live anywhere else!
