If you want to be surrounded by nature while living in a populated area, the neighborhoods around Steeplechase and Colts Neck in South Reston are the perfect spot.
The homes in this area of Reston were built in the 70s. These single-family homes contain a mixture of architectural styles–but they all have been well-maintained and cared for over the years.
The thing many visitors notice first is how each lot is private and spacious. The trees in this neighborhood are fully mature, making you feel like you are tucked away in the woods and not a few short miles from Reston Town Center and the Toll Road.
There are Reston Association recreation areas nearby, with playgrounds and facilities for anyone who wants to use them. There are also miles of nature trails that are perfect for dog walking, running, or just enjoying a beautiful day.
Neighborhood children attend Hunters Woods Elementary School, Langston Hughes Middle School, and South Lakes High School. Both Hunters Woods Village Center and Fox Mill Shopping Center offer easy access to grocery shopping and quick dining. As part of Reston Association, residents also have access to nearby pools and tennis courts.
If you are a nature lover, this is the neighborhood for you.
