As San Antonio’s expanding cityscape has slowly but surely pushed north and westward, nearly every master-planned community boasts sweeping views and a unique sense of “Texas charm”.
But just which neighborhoods have managed to captures that wild Hill Country spirit?
While many San Antonio zip codes may like to claim this elusive honor, Timberwood Park is one of the few that stands out as a true San Antonio-Hill Country fusion.
Nestled in the far north reaches of the Alamo City, Timberwood Park is a custom home neighborhood in San Antonio spanning over 2,200 acres. Though the community is less than two miles from Hwy 281, five miles from Loop 1604, and boasts a population of approximately 14,000 residents, “there’s more treetops than rooftops.” Timberwood’s unique location, large homesites, and emphasis on natural features create a master-planned oasis apart from the hum of the city.
Built anywhere between 1978 and 2018 (with plenty of spacious empty lots primed for more custom homes), Timberwood’s selection of San Antonio houses for sale is diverse, yet consistently high-quality. Due to enforced architectural guidelines and protective covenants (to ensure land preservation), property values remain high, and houses in Timberwood Park remain beautiful.
Spacious home lots (usually starting at ½ acre) lay the foundation for distinctly Texas homes, usually with a bit of European charm thrown in. Houses in Timberwood Park currently on the market range from 1,500 to over 5,000 square feet and range from $249,000 to $615,000. Plus, low HOA fees and no city taxes means that you can afford more than you think!
Besides the obvious Hill Country perks (unspoiled views, wandering friendly wildlife, and sprawling oak trees), Timberwood Park offers residents a plethora of neighborhood amenities. A few favorites include a private 30-acre park, 7-acre fishing lake, swimming pool with clubhouse, a weight room, playgrounds, community-oriented picnic and barbecue areas, a par 3 golf course and putting greens, tennis and sports courts, sand volleyball courts, and walking-and-jogging trails!
Timberwood Park is located within the highly regarded Comal Independent School District. Comal ISD students continually outperform their peers across the state, and continue to exceed the state passing rate in all tests, at all levels. Timberwood Park’s local schools include Timberwood Park Elementary (which has received an “exemplary” rating), Jose M Lopez Middle School, and Johnson High School. In the private sector, San Antonio Christian School, Buckner Fanning Christian School, and Rolling Hills Academy provide an alternative to the public school system.
While many residents may be tempted to hole up at home in this Hill Country paradise, Timberwood Park’s north-lying location offers easy access to both San Antonio and Hill Country attractions. From nearby shopping (The Village at Stone Oak and The Shops at the Vineyard are just minutes away) to health care (North Central Baptist Hospital, Methodist Stone Oak Hospital, and North Central Urgent) to hikes and small-town Texas Main Street (Bulverde, TX), Timberwood Park is an outlying hub, connecting the luxury shopping and entertainment of the big city with the charm and values of the Hill Country.
Overall, Timberwood Park stands out from other San Antonio neighborhoods due to a strong sense of warm community and a slower-paced lifestyle complemented by gorgeous homes, beautiful views, and luxury amenities!
