Do you ever dream of finding a quiet place in the woods, free from the hustle and bustle of urban life? Except that you like the hustle and bustle of urban life, so you don’t want to go live in the woods. What if you could find both? Bentana Woods is the neighborhood for you.

Townhomes in Bentana Woods/Photo: ZillowBennett of Virginia built these townhomes in1 972. They’re located in the Tall Oaks section of Reston, about one mile from the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station (which means you could walk there if you wanted).

They’re also a quick walk into Lake Fairfax Park and short drive to Reston Town Center or Lake Anne Plaza.

The original Tall Oaks Village Center is slated for redevelopment, so within the next few years there will be new shops and restaurants all a quick walk from your front door. But you won’t be able to tell because this neighborhood is so secluded you feel like you’re in rural Virginia.

The fact that these three-to-four-bedroom, 1,700 square-foot townhouses are charming and well designed is icing on the cake.

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.

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!

    How is 8600 square feet of retail (recently approved plans for Tall Oaks) anything resembling a village center?

    It’s great living there unless you need to come and go during traffic hours. Wheile is gridlock. Light to light.

    I recently moved to this neighborhood and cannot be happier with my decision. The location is centralized to everything I may need, yet just beyond my backyard there are networks of nature trails. The housing is older but is well constructed with large bedrooms plenty of bathrooms. The traffic on Whiele is definitely a drawback and i hope Ms. Hudgins has proffers and impact studies completed prior to the expansion of Tall Oaks Village Center.
