Neighborhood Spotlight: Canyon Springs

If you travel down 281 North, past Sonterra and Stone Oak, you will find a string of communities nestled in a valley among the rolling hills of North San Antonio. While it wasn’t too long ago that this part of the city seemed like the boondocks, now days the area is bursting with top-name retail, restaurants for any palate, and neighborhoods galore. Among these neighborhoods is the stunning community of Canyon Springs. Born alongside the rapid expansion of the area, Canyon Springs delivers an array of pocket communities, each designed to meet nearly every budget, layout, or design need.

The diversity of homes, lot sizes, and amenities in Canyon Springs are extremely appealing to buyers. With TPC Parkway less than six miles away, a brand new HEB on the corner of Wilderness Oak and Hardy Oak, and a Sam’s on the corner of 281 and Marshall Rd., almost anything you may need is at your fingertips. And while having nearby amenities is excellent, the lower tax rates for many of the neighborhoods are particularly attractive to buyers. In general, the Boulders at Canyon Springs, Canyon Springs Cove, Enclave at Canyon Springs, Lakeside at Canyon Springs, Ridge at Lookout Canyon, Lookout Canyon Creek, The Crossing at Lookout Canyon, Lookout Canyon Estates, Summit at Canyon Springs, Bluffs of Lookout Canyon, and the Villas at Canyon Springs are all located in the Comal ISD. This means homeowners will pay Comal ISD taxes rather than Bexar County taxes, which provides a stellar tax incentive for home buyers.

With nearly 20 different communities to choose from, all centered around the beautiful Canyon Springs Golf Course, Canyon Springs offers everything from starter homes in The Bluffs of Lookout Canyon, to luxury homes in The Reserve at Canyon Springs. From price points of $129k all the way up to over $1 million, each neighborhood has its own appeal. Because most of the neighborhoods are gated, and all have access to the community pools, parks, playgrounds and sports courts, choosing the right home in Canyon Springs really only comes down to your budget and floor plan preference!

An additional draw to Canyon Springs is the family atmosphere that the community provides. Along with access to the neighborhood amenities, children residing in Canyon Springs are invited to participate in many community events throughout the year.  Additionally, the Canyon Springs Olympic-sized pool is home to the Sailfish swim team, a competitive summer swim league open to all residents under 18. If the community events aren’t enough of a draw, the school districts are. Served by both Northside ISD and Comal ISD, depending on where the home is located, children in the community have access to award winning education systems.

Once known as the outskirts of San Antonio, Canyon Springs has seen tremendous growth by homebuyers seeking land, excellent schools, and Hill Country views. While it houses some of the most luxurious homes in San Antonio, the neighborhoods of Canyon Springs offer diverse homes for almost anyone and convenient amenities within reach.
