My husband has been offered and accepted a new job in Reston. We are a family of 5, with 3 children 5, 6 and 9.
Someone has recommended we look at rental in Ashburn, and from what we have seen on the internet we quite like the look of Broadlands, Ashburn Village, Belmont and Brambleton. We want to live in a family community where we will make friends easily and the kids will fit in quickly.
We are wondering what kind of commute my husband can expect to have from these areas to Reston - particularly from Broadlands and Brambleton. Any idea?
Any other advice on schools, neighbourhoods etc.. would be greatly appreciated since there is only so much information you can get from the internet.
Thanks in advance of any response!

How about living in Reston? Here is a wonderful house, on a family friendly street (my street), walking distance to all the schools, and best of all (in my opinion) the Walker Nature Center (70 acreas of open space) is in the backyard with great nature trails. The commute will only be a few minutes to Sunrise Valley and your husband will be able to join the family in taking full advantage of all Reston has to offer - swimming pools, nature center, tennis courts, etc. I have provided some links.

Thanks for the detailed response.

We'll definitely have a look at Reston when we come over in a few weeks - it will be easier to decide once I get a feel for the place.

Thanks again.
