Where We Live: Scotts Run

By Karen Briscoe 

Scotts Run is a quiet community of 25 single family homes located off Old Dominion Dr. Built in the early 1970s, the homes feature numerous architectural styles including colonial, rambler, contemporary, and split level. The neighborhood offers plenty of privacy, and many of the homes sit on half-acre lots with wooded views. 

Scotts Run is in an ideal location with multiple parks and shopping centers close by. Scott’s Run Nature Preserve is just a mile away and encompasses 336 acres of hiking trails, rocky cliffs, valleys, and a plethora of unique plants and animals. It’s also a part of the Potomac River Gorge and is one of the rarest biological ecosystems in the mid-Atlantic. In addition, the neighborhood is just 4 miles to the Difficult Run Stream Valley Trail along Georgetown Pike, which offers peaceful scenery along rapids that lead into the Potomac River. For residents of Scotts Run, nature is all around!

The area is also near several shopping centers and destinations, including downtown McLean and Tysons. Just 3 miles away, downtown McLean provides must-have stores such as Giant, Starbucks, McLean Hardware, and Total Wine. Tysons offers shopping experiences at two major regional malls that have a plethora of top-quality restaurants and entertainment options. Tysons is also home to The Boro, a dynamic neighborhood with amazing restaurants, shopping, outdoor events, and more. 

Scotts Run is a part of Fairfax County’s top-rated school system, which includes Spring Hill Elementary, Cooper Middle, and Langley High. It’s near several commuter routes, including I-495, I-66, and the Dulles Toll Rd. The McLean Metro is just 3  miles away and operates the Silver line into DC. In addition, Reagan National Airport and Dulles International Airport are both within 15 miles.
