Reston - A Rich History

Reston is one of the premier "New Town" planned communities in the United States, founded in 1964.  In 2018, Reston was ranked as the Best Places to Live in Virginia by Money magazine for its expanses of parks, lakes, golf courses, and bridle paths as well as the numerous shopping and dining opportunities in Reston Town Center.  Reston is rich in architectural detail, boasting designs from some of the finest architects such as James Rosant and Charles Goodman.  Whether you seek the eclectic or the traditional, Reston has a home for you.

The residences of Reston identify their area by which side of the Dulles Toll Road they reside on, with 267 splitting Reston into North Reston (20194) and South Reston (20191).  So that leaves (20190) as Central Reston we shall say, but most would say it still falls on the north side for arguments sake.

They say living in Reston is like living in a park.  With over 1,300 acres of open space to explore, hike, or just relax.  If walking and biking sound like more fun, take advantage of the 55 miles of paved pathways Reston has to offer then cool off in one of the fifteen pools maintained by the Reston Association.  Amenities are abundant when you live here in Reston.
