Sometimes the community you live in is just as important as the home you live in! A great community can really turn a house into a home and give you a special place to raise your family. Some of our custom homes are in the Monteola community, located just north of San Antonio in Bulverde. We’re proud to be one of the selected builders working in this premier community because it’s filled with high-quality homes and families who are eager to make Monteola a special place to live. Whether you are moving to the San Antonio for the first time or have been living here for years and just need a change, Monteola should be a community that’s high on your wish list. There is a lot to love here, but we’ve put together a list of the top ten reasons we think you’ll love Monteola as much as we do.
Why You’ll Love the Monteola Community
Beautiful custom homes.
We might be biased because we’re one of the builders in the community, but we don’t think so. The homes in Monteola are genuinely gorgeous. The community has been held to an incredibly high standard in terms of design and architecture, and we’re thrilled to be surrounded by such high-quality homes. The quality isn’t just beneficial for the eyes, either. In the long term, these are home designs that are going to be in demand even decades from now, meaning that homes in this community are going to see a lot of great resale value down the road as well.
Close to San Antonio.
San Antonio is a thriving Texas town full of plenty of shopping, entertainment, and job opportunities. It has all the big-city amenities you could want while still retaining a comfortable and relaxed Texas feel. But what’s even better is living in the areas outside of San Antonio. That means you’ll be close to the action without putting up with the traffic and noise of the city. Monteola is close enough that it’s an easy commute into work or if you want to enjoy one of the cities fine restaurants or catch a show. But you’ll be far enough away that your home feels like a private getaway.
Large lots with plenty of space.
A lot of modern communities try to cram in as many homes as possible, meaning you can practically reach out a window and touch your neighbor’s house. When you live in Monteola, though, you get all the space that you need! The home plots within the community are between five and seven acres, meaning you’ll have plenty of space between you are your neighbors. It’s great for gardeners, those with kids who need room to run and play, or just anyone who wants a little extra room to spread out. Having your own acreage will make you feel like you have a country home all to yourself, but you’ll still be within easy reach of shopping and entertainment.
Open, natural spaces to enjoy.
There is even more space to enjoy off of your plot. Monteola has been carefully planned to blend in with the surrounding nature. The community planners wanted Monteola to preserve and enhance the natural beauty of the surrounding Texas landscape. It’s something that you’ll see and appreciate from the first time you come tour the community. The custom homes in the area take advantage of the views and there are plenty of open, natural areas to explore on your daily walks, so you’ll be able to enjoy all that nature in and out of your home.
We know that safety matters to the families we work with when building a home. That’s why we appreciate the safety measures put in place by the Monteola community. One of those measures is controlled access to the community. Monteola is a gated community, meaning that only those who live there will be able to drive into the neighborhood. That can give you peace of mind when you and your family are out and about in the community; the only people who will be there are those who live there.
Guardhouse for additional safety.
Gated access isn’t the only great safety feature, though. A guardhouse has also been installed at the gate. A guard at the gate will provide an additional level of security for the residents of Monteola; not only will any visitors need to pass through the gate, they’ll be noted by security. And if there is any suspicious activity within the community, residents will be able to report it to the guardhouse. All of these safety features are put in place to give you peace of mind, so you can focus on enjoying the community instead of worrying about your safety.
Underground utilities to preserve beauty.
Monteola builders go the extra mile to make this community a special place. One of the ways this has been done is by putting all of the utilities underground. This might seem like a little thing, but when you drive through the community you’ll see the big impact it makes on the homes and surrounding landscape. By moving utilities underground, there are no unsightly wires or pipes to disturb the sweeping vistas. Homeowners don’t have to worry about their pets or children getting into above-ground dangers, either.
Lots of native landscaping.
The landscaping around Monteola is almost as beautiful as the homes! Landscaping within the public spaces of the community has been carefully planned to enhance the natural beauty of the surrounding area. It’s something that you’ll notice right away. There are gorgeous areas landscaped with trees, bushes, and artistically arranged with rock that blends seamlessly into the area. It’s another way that the community is working with nature instead of against it. Plus, you’ll get to enjoy all this gorgeous landscaping without actually having to take care of it yourself.
Iron sculptures from a nationally renowned artist.
All that gorgeous landscaping isn’t the end of it, though. As an additional artistic feature within the community, you’ll find iron sculptures along many of the roads from George Schroeder, Jr. Mr. Schroeder is a nationally celebrated artist working out of San Antonio. His pieces are striking, strong, and a wonderful addition to the natural landscape. You’ll be proud to live in a community that celebrates nature and art in such a powerful way.
