SAN ANTONIO REAL ESTATE NEWS

Neighborhood Spotlight: Emerald Forest

A stunning neighborhood of custom built homes, Emerald Forest offers a blend of luxury and convenience on the far north side of San Antonio. The prime location of this neighborhood offers residents a short drive from the heart of the city, yet exudes the secluded feeling that so many desire. Because of the neighborhood’s convenient proximity to Loop 1604 and Highway 281, San Antonio real estate buyers snag these homes off the market almost as quickly as they are put on. In addition to the amenities located close to the outside the neighborhood, such as the San Antonio airport, Northstar mall, shopping, medical facilities, restaurants and entertainment, the inside of the neighborhood boasts amenities that homeowners enjoy as well. Within the guarded gates of the entrance, Emerald Forest homeowners enjoy basketball and tennis courts, jogging trails, a playground, clubhouse, and a pool. Additionally, children in the neighborhood benefit from excellent public schooling provided by the top-rated Northeast Independent School District.

Custom-built in the 2000’s by Sitterle, Bill Cox, Hearthside and more, the homes in Emerald Forest vary in size from approximately 2,000 to 4,000 square feet. Because of the prestige, excellent location, and amenities, these homes hold their value exceedingly well and generally sell for $125-$160 per square foot, which equates to list prices in the $300,000-$500,000 price range.

A quiet, upscale community, Emerald Forest homes have mature trees, beautifully landscaped lots, and many have private pools in their backyard. Its picturesque lots, custom homes, and private (while convenient) location has earned it a spot as one of San Antonio’s most sought-after neighborhoods.
