My husband will be based in Reston - we would look to live in a 20 mile radius from there - any suggestions?? Is there an alternative to driving to Reston? We'd rather be more rural. Also schools - we have 3 children 11,10 and 7. Any help very welcome!

As far as looking for something rural, you're going to have to stretch it out to about 30+ miles from Reston at least, past Leesburg, or further down Rt.50 (maybe Arcola). There are a few pockets here and there that may be closer, but you probably don't want to buy something that is in a development path down the line, and they are going to be pricey.
In regards to alternatives to driving, there are a few public transit options, such as the different park and rides in every county with bus routes, but most of the routes are focused on Metro stations and DC as destinations. I work in Reston, and most of the people who utilize public transit to get there are coming from the opposite direction, MD and DC. The ones who live in the boonies are pretty much stuck driving.
