Tucked behind Reston Parkway and Glade Drive in South Reston is a cluster of neighborhoods perfect for families who want space to grow. Paddock Lane is one of these lovely neighborhoods with something for everyone.

Built in the late 1960s and early 70s, Paddock Lane is a community of single-family homes on quarter- to half-acre plots. The styles of homes range from Colonial to contemporary — there is no cookie-cutter feel in this neighborhood.

In addition to the well-kept homes and yards, one of the most appealing aspects of Paddock Lane is it’s location. Located off Colts Neck Road, Paddock Lane is across the street from Hunters Woods Elementary School, an easy walk for young children.

It is also walking distance to Hunters Woods Village Center, home to the Reston Community Center. There are several parks, a community garden, tennis courts, and Reston Association’s Hunters Woods Pool also within walking distance.

Paddock Lane is only a few short miles to the Dulles Toll Road or the Fairfax County Parkway, which is nice for commuters. This is the perfect street for anyone looking for a little bit of land, a friendly neighborhood, and easy access around Reston.

    All of the “horse” related streets in Reston are beautiful.

    Many of the streets are named after triple crown winners or were contenders in those stakes. Another major benefit here is the easy access to the Fairfax connector buses that take you quickly to the metro. One can easily walk to their choice of stop and when coming home could stop at the safeway and pick up whatever one may need. Also homes built in this area are from the sixties and seventies are of much higher quality than most other single family structures from the eighties and beyond. We were attracted to this neighborhood because one could see that many of the original residents still remain today and they raised their families right here. Inspiring to us
    Finally the neighborhood is comprised of some of the best and most interesting people you will find in Reston.

      Couldn’t agree with you more Mike– it really is a beautiful part of Reston.
