"Money magazine ranked Oakton #36 out of 100 in its article “Best Places to Live: Money’s list of America’s best small towns.” Although Oakton does not exactly fit the definition of a small town, it is a great place to live. It is rich in equestrian and farming history and that can still be seen apparent along the winding, rolling roads through the wooded neighborhoods. Many lots still exist that accommodate horses and small farms. The large lots, mature trees, close proximity to parks, schools, shopping and easy access to Washington, D.C. has kept Oakton high on the list of many home buyers" says,Karen Sparks of Keller Williams Realty.
