Just four or five miles outside of Downtown San Antonio lie some of the prettiest, safest neighborhoods in the area. With an emphasis on open spaces, the preservation of natural light and tree populations, and the well-being of their citizens, these San Antonio Select Neighborhoods offer a quality of life that is unparalleled. Located to the north of the city, this is one of the fastest growing segments of San Antonio residential real estate.
Tempting Terrell Hills
Consistently among the pricier of the San Antonio select neighborhoods, Terrell Hills boasts mostly newer construction as older, smaller bungalows were removed and replaced with graceful, stately manors. Even for those who cannot afford to purchase one of these beautiful homes, Terrell Hills offers many upscale condos for sale or for rent. The city is served by two outstanding and highly sought school districts – Alamo Heights ISD and North East ISD. The focus on family and on public safety makes Terrell Hills an ideal location for families.
Winsome Waterford Heights
For those looking for a truly distinctive and upscale neighborhood, Waterford Heights offers the finest in design and amenities. This San Antonio select neighborhood is a gated community within the gated community of The Heights at Stone Oak. Home sites range from one to one-and-one-half acres, and homes are a minimum of 4,500 square feet. The recreation center within The Heights includes a 25-meter pool, a wading pool, lighted tennis courts, sand volleyball courts, basketball courts, a ball field, and a children’s play area. Just outside the gates lies The Town Center.
The master plan envisions a coffee shop, convenience store, and other useful services located within easy reach of these custom estate homes without requiring a trip to the city for basic needs. Homes in this San Antonio select neighborhood are varied in architecture, but would rival the manors and estates of such neighborhoods as Bel Air and Beverly Hills. Stone is used extensively on the facades, and covered entries, long sweeping driveways, and spacious manicured yards are seen throughout. Lots are still available for purchase for those who wish to build their own dream from the ground up. While you may feel like you are a world away from the city in these beautiful, wooded communities, downtown San Antonio is merely a 20 minute drive. Residents have the best of both worlds – quiet, country living within easy reach of the class and culture of the city.
