Terrell Hills area homes

Posted by VIP Realty on Monday, June 20th, 2011 at 8:58pm.

Frederick Terrell started this small city back in the 1920s, and promoted the community as a residential paradise close to San Antonio. They were once almost taken over by the City of San Antonio when an annexation was passed, but it was done illegally, and Mr Terrell fought the action in court, and it was thrown out. Today this independent community which is also next door neighbors with Alamo Heights has a rich heritage of homes that date back ninety years, and is intermingled with all the styles that took us through the post World War II era, and mid-century modern home architecture as well. The pricing structure of single family homes in Terrell Hills shows that this suburb starts at middle to upper middle class pricing. A newlywed couple wanting to start a family can surely find a home under the two hundred thousand dollar mark, but the four to five hundred thousand ranges seem to be more abundant currently. The landscape on each street will show the progression of home styling over this area’s almost one hundred year range, and it is very common to see a home built in the 1940s next to a custom home built that was constructed in 2003 or later. Overall, the Terrell Hills area homes are perfect for raising a family, and mimic the lifestyle you will find in nearby independent municipalities. The good news is that its residents are only five miles from downtown San Antonio, so work, and shopping are really at their fingertips. The daily commute is an easy one whether is to downtown or other destinations in the Alamo city, but Terrell Hills is just far enough to stay out of reach of the tourism trade on the weekends, and in the summer. For those trying save a few dollars and have stay-cations instead of traveling vacations, you could not ask for a more perfect city to live in with all the family oriented venues available. Fiesta Texas, Sea-World, San Antonio Zoo, and The Texas Hill Country are all very close to Terrell Hills, and makes for a great hub or starting point to visit all that is available in the area. Make sure when relocating to the San Antonio area that you ask your Realtor to find some offerings in this uniquely blended suburb, and once you compare it to other offerings around town, you will be back for a second look or to make an offer
