When it comes to building a custom home, there are constant decisions to be made. One of the most significant is deciding where to build your home. With San Antonio’s continued growth, finding the space to build often means looking on the outskirts of the city. The Texas Hill Country boasts beautiful rolling hills, expansive yards, more trees than rooftops and great schools. All these benefits come without the price tag of city taxes. Whether you want an oasis outside the city, or a refuge within the radius of HEB, the Hill Country has you covered.
Found between San Antonio and Austin is the rolling 4,000 acre community of Vintage Oaks. This community offers 1-14 acre lots with gated and ungated options to guarantee the ideal fit for each customer. Residents can enjoy the events, food and shopping of quaint New Braunfels as well as year round community activities. Home owners also have access to resort-like amenities including a fitness center, multiple pools, and a lazy river. No doubt about it, this community is a gem for families seeking to escape the city.
Located in Spring Branch, Texas and nestled on the Guadalupe River is Serenity Oaks. This community boasts home owner river access as well as private access for lots located directly on the river. With 1-3 acre sites, home owners can expect a spread out feel while still having the opportunity to pass neighbors on walks. Serenity Oaks is a gated community with a recreational park offering a playground, basketball court and pool. Located in the Comal Independent School District, children have a variety of education options sought after in the area.
In the tiny Texas town of Bulverde, lies Belle Oaks. Offering a 15 minute distance from North San Antonio, this community can offer peaceful scenery without a killer San Antonio commute. Prospective homebuyers can choose between 1-2 acre sites also zoned within the Comal Independent School District. The community offers outdoor amenities such as trails, a playground, a pool, and sport courts. For those seeking aquatic leisure, Belle Oaks is only 20 minutes from the beautiful Canyon Lake.
All three of these communities allow people to purchase land but wait to build until the time is right for them, a sign of the easy going nature found in home divisions on the margins of San Antonio. The Hill Country is filled with gorgeous views and growing communities allowing a small town feel without losing access to city amenities. Wherever you picture your dream home, it can’t beat the Texas Hill Country.
