South Riding Real Estate Information

South Riding is a planned community in Chantilly, Virginia, just south of the Washington Dulles International Airport. Known as the "Dulles South" Region, South Riding’s population has grown to exceed 15,000 people. Due to its premier location near Route 50 and Route 28, residents have convenient access to the well-known Dulles/Reston/Tysons Corner technology corridor as well as other major commercial centers throughout northern Virginia and in the greater Washington metropolitan area.

Due to its location just northwest of Chantilly, the lack of commercial interests in South Riding forces residents to make the short drive to Chantilly shopping malls and retail outlets. For those who would prefer to stay in South Riding, a few big-box retailers have locations nearby, including Home Depot, Giant, Bloom, and The South Riding Inn.

A series of streams and brooks that curve through the area creates an ambient atmosphere that has made South Riding one of the most desirable places to live. The Cub Run Stream Valley Park exemplifies this sentiment as parkgoers often find peace and solace as they sit along the charming river banks on lazy weekend afternoons. A number of annual events like Celebrate South Riding, Party in the Park, End of School Celebration Session, Summer Concert Series, Star Spangled South Riding, Business Expo and Community-wide Yard Sale, and the South Riding Triathalon, all attract people from around the state. Residents enjoy the diversity in community programming because of the tight-knit environment it stimulates. This interaction and trust also makes South Riding a very safe place to live.

South Riding Golfers Club is one of the largest set of links in the region. Pleasant Valley Golf Course is another popular golfing hotspot. An extensive parks and recreation program is run year-round, although it operates at its peak in the summer months. A variety of planned activities, like swimming, camping, and tennis lessons are offered for affordable fees at parks around South Riding as part of a larger summer fun experience. The South Riding community is served by a number of resources, namely three elementary schools, a high school, a public safety center, and a few day care centers.
