Bargainhigh, the Greenway Downs subdivision is a nice, tree-lined, quiet neighborhood. If you have kids, there are two playgrounds/parks/ballfields withing walking distance inside the neighborhood. I actually lived there until last summer (my family still lives there, however), and I miss it very much.

GD is not in Falls Church City proper - you will be considered a resident of Fairfax County, even though anyone who lives in GD will say they are from Falls Church. The incorporated city begins one road over from the upper edge of Greenway downs.

In regards to a commute to Reston, I used to work in Herdon, which is right next to Reston. The morning commute is not that bad, I'd say about a 30-40 minute drive, mostly traffic-free except for some short stretches along 495-N.
