Bentana Woods is one of those Reston neighborhoods that makes you forget you live in a bustling urban area.
Built in 1972 by Bennett of Virginia, this community is located in the Tall Oaks section of Reston — about one mile from the Wiehle Metro Station, a quick walk into Lake Fairfax Park, and short drive to Reston Town Center or Lake Anne Plaza.
The location is fantastic, which makes the fact that these townhouses are charming and well designed even better.
Bentana Woods is actually two separate clusters—Bentana Woods Cluster has 48 homes while Bentana Woods West has 108 homes. More than 50 percent of the neighborhood lands are common areas with open grass, tot lots, and stands of trees—trees that the National Wildlife Federation has certified as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat. The townhomes feature three-to-four bedrooms with about 1,700 square feet of living space.
If you want to be close to the action, but feel like you’re living in a national park, Bentana Woods is the Reston neighborhood for you!
