G'day folks,
We are currently resident in Silver Spring, MD but are considering a move to Warrenton, VA (a possible job offer).
We're a couple, me - full-time employed, wife - semi-retired looking for part-time work.
We both love DC and all it's attractions and would welcome suggestions as to somewhere reasonably distant from both places. Access to transport to DC would be a distinct advantage. Any suggestions?

I'd recommend looking at points in Prince William County around the Manassas area. Mileage-wise, it's halfway between DC and Warrenton. There is train service via VRE into DC from Manassas, Manassas Park and Broad Run/Airport. If you want to be closer to DC and still have access to public transit, the next closest stop would be in Burke, but by this point, a commute to Warrenton would be a pain (although it would be a reverse commute so it wouldn't be too awful).

Take a look at Nokesville, Gainesville, Haymarket, Bristow, New Baltimore, Catharpin, Bull Run, Catlett, Bealeton and Broad Run. All of these places would give you easy access to Warrenton and the VRE station in Manassas. I believe there are also plans to put a VRE station in the Gainesville/Haymarket area, so once that's built you will have another option for getting to DC.

Thanks to both who replied.
I appreciate your thoughts, particularly as I'm quite new to DC and the only place we've been in VA is Williamsburg, and I KNOW that's not close!

I'll check out your suggestions this week.

Anyone else care to comment?

Does anyone know about the Ryan Homes community called "The Reserve at Brookside" ? What is it like? How far from downtown Warrenton and from Gainesville? How far from 66? How far from groceries?

Any other are you'd recommend that has lots at 1/2-1 acres in size? Would be working in Gainesville and Warrenton; remote possibility will have to work in Stafford or Front Royal in the future.

Thanks!
