West Market community is adjacent to the Reston Town Center; it has lots of town homes, amenities include a large clubhouse with fitness center, a large pool, a jogging track around a large pond. Virtually no crime.

Oh, and its 7 minutes to Dulles because West Market is a short distance from the Toll [Dulles Access] Road.

It has been a year! Have you moved? Ready to move?

There are many fantastic schools/neighborhoods within 45 minutes of Dulles, VA. There are various tools available online for researching this. I also recommend going to the source...this is the Virginia Department of Education website:
and for crime reports:
Fairfax County:
Loudoun County:

You should also look in Loudoun County. I would be delighted to help you with your search if the time is right. I have lived in Clifton, Chantilly and Reston, and have been an agent in this area for 28 years. Feel free to contact me!

Thank you to all who replied. I am not ready to buy yet, so I will hold off on contacting anyone at this time.

Another question: I had a lot of people reply that I will have good luck looking for a home in Fairfax County...can someone give me some city names besides Reston, please. Again, the criteria are good schools and low crime, as near as possible to Dulles.

Thank you
