homes in RESTON are in DISTINCT VILLAGES
Creating distinct villages, each with a theme and organized around a neighborhood shopping center within a half mile walking distance, was Simon’s plan. Lake Anne Village was the first of those with a concentration of townhomes to save of the open spaces. One of those original concepts was a zoning that restricted retail establishments to local proprietors, this has created a popular attraction in the Reston area. Hunters Woods was the next village that was designed. The Reston National Golf Course is within the Hunters Woods village along with the sought-after elementary school, Hunters Woods Magnet School. The village of South Lakes contains two large lakes; Audubon Lake and Thoreau Lake. This beautiful, active community is centered around and on the lakes. Tall Oaks is the smallest of all of the villages. It is a very quiet, peaceful community. The last and final village to be developed was North Point.
