I'm not sure I understand what you're seeking, but you will definitely be able to find a house with a yard in Sterling, as well as most of the areas nearby. A lot has been written about Sterling on this forum. Use the search engine and you will find plenty of posts about Sterling and Eastern Loudoun County. Hopefully you will find what you need, if not ask something a little more specific and we will try to help you. Welcome to Virginia.

there are some very neat older towns with homes with large yards and big trees that would be easy commute to sterling.
Leesburg has it's share of newer tract home planned communities but also some wonder old victorians and older 1970-80 homes on large 1/2 acre lots. It has a vibrant historic downtown with the courthouse etc... (see other threads about Leesburg for more info)
A bit further out is Purceville again some newer homes and older homes. It too has a neat little downtown area and some shopping.
Hamilton is a great little town, not much for shopping you'd ghave to go to Purceville or Leesburg. But the homes there are neat and alot are on big 1/2 lots. Hills and trees etc...

Any further out will put you at a bout 45 minute or more commute into sterling. Plus no shopping past purceville.

Sterling itself is worth looking at as well.

Ashburn is nice it's newer and a master planned community atmosphere, strip shopping centers neighborhood pools, walking trail etc...(again look up old posts) not too many big yards unless you go over 500k. no "down town".

Schools are all Loudoun county and the vast majority are very good. a few exceptions here and there.
