Living in Oakton, Virginia
Located just 15 miles from Washington DC and a few miles west of the town of Vienna, Oakton is a leafy enclave of large (mostly ½ to 5 acre) lots fringed with trees. Larger lots allow residents to own horses, and the community is home to several equestrian communities threaded with horse trails. Oakton is home to Difficult Run Stream, and the stream and its trails thread the entire community. Consequently, most homes enjoy privacy and natural vistas.
In 2011, Oakton was named the 36th best town in America for livability by Money Magazine. Academically competitive public schools, close-knit neighborhoods, and a DC Metro station (Orange line) all make Oakton the place to buy a home. Oakton of course is served by Fairfax County Public Schools, rated in the top tier of public schools nationally.
Residents of Oakton number among the luminaries of politics and business nationally. They gravitate to Oakton because of its privacy and they enjoy the abundant woods, rolling hills, clear creeks, scenic county parkland, and nearby W & OD Trails for biking or walking. The historic town of Oakton is small, but residents enjoy the quiet and privacy. It is an easy drive to eat or shop in Reston Towne Center or the nearby town of Vienna or the commercial center of Tysons. And Washington DC is a reasonable commute away.
