Reston Real Estate: Get to Know Lawyers Road

When you’re driving down Lawyers Road in South Reston, it is easy to forget that you are in the midst of increasingly urban Reston.

This twisting, winding, hilly and tree-lined state road embodies the beauty of Northern Virginia. The few homes with a Lawyers Road address sit well off the street, surrounded by woods (and the occasional horse paddock).

There are several charming streets that house tight-knit communities of people who take pride in their neighborhood. Among them: November Lane, Steeplechase, Myrtle Lane, Charlestown, and more.

Each street has it’s own style and community feel and range from small “starter” homes to larger estates. What they all have in common is natural beauty and friendly neighbors. Each neighborhood has easy access to Reston’s walking paths, making it perfect for families that enjoy the outdoors.

Not too many years ago, Lawyers Road was the primary way to get from Reston to Vienna and Fairfax. In fact, in fact the road leads straight to the county courthouse, so that may give you a clue to how it got its name. It’s still the fastest and and most scenic way to get to old town Vienna.

But that’s only if you choose to leave Reston. Lawyers intersects with Twin Branches, making it a quick jaunt to Lake Audubon, Lake Thoreau, and South Lakes Village Center. Or jump on Soapstone for a quick trip to the Walker Nature Education Center and South Lakes High School. It also ends at Reston Parkway at Fox Mill Center.

If you’re looking for a community of single-family homes that is in Reston, but slightly removed from the hustle and bustle, look at the areas on or near Lawyers Road.
