Are you looking for an apartment? The nearest Metro is about 8 miles, I would think from Reston. It could either be Vienna or Falls Church.

Apartments in Herndon, or Reston should be ideal for you, but Ashburn is about 20 mts and much cheaper as well.

Metro's Orange Line ends at Vienna, which has single-family neighborhoods, townhouses, and apartments. There is a brand-new development within walking distance of the Vienna station. You might also consider the Merrifield area of Fairfax County, near the Dunn Loring Metro station. In the past few years, many new condo and apartment buildings have been built there, and there is a new single-family "executive" neighborhood under construction just down Gallows Road from the station. That area is about 20 minutes from Reston.
Reston itself is one of the original planned communities, and would be a great choice if you could manage without being near the Metro. There are lots of sf homes, townhouses, apts, and condos in many price ranges, plus extensive rec facilities (bike path, pools, golf courses, etc.).

If you will be working in Reston and want to live near Metro, your commute will be against rush hour traffic so you will be able to get to most areas east such as Arlington, Falls Church, and Vienna with little effort, however these are very pricy areas.
