Moderator cut: advertising is not permitted

I've lived here my entire life and have worked downtown. I would say look in Stone Oak, Alamo Heights (close to downtown/Broadway), Summerglen, or Inwood. They are currently doing a lot of work on the 1604/281 interchange, so traffic is a problem right now (and has been for a long time!) once they finish it, it should help a lot.

Unfortunately, property taxes are a problem here.

Moderator cut: no soliciting

Good luck!

Thanks for your input! Question....I know traditional basements are not likely but in Plano we had as I described before the TX Basement as it was called. Conditioned, walk in storage off our second floor game room. It was a fairly good size space. How common are those in San Antonio?

We looked at 5 homes in March before purchasing ours and two of them had the TX basements your talking about and 3 didn't. These homes were all in the Stone Oak area. Interesting enough none of the details listed that the 2 homes had them. I guess it wasn't a big selling point

When we were looking at homes (the last two times), only Plantation offered a "Texas basement"..essentially, a large closet.

Currently, McMillin offers a walk out basement (due to elevation drop) in the Cliffs at Cibolo neighborhood: http://www.mcmillinhomes.com/san-ant...-out-basements

Welcome to San Antonio! We have a home 1/2 your size and it has a "Texas Attic" which is a walk-in space on our second floor containing our water heater and currently housing suit cases, and christmas decorations! David Weekley built our home (we love it) in the Trinity Oaks subdivision. I have a friend that lives in New Braunfels but it's right on the western edge of the city limit. He lives near Natural Bridge Caverns and there are some large homes in that area. I think the development is called Rockwall Ranch. I do agree that if you can find something closer to work rather than to the lake it would make his daily routine more manageable. If he's planning to retire sooner rather than later, then consider the areas mentioned by hey32G, or pobre.

I would look in the I-10/Boerne Stage Rd area, across from The Dominion.

I drive past the I-10/1604 interchange daily and the traffic on I-10 into town is atrocious. It would be quite a trek to get to Broadway everyday from this area. There are some very nice homes in that area and Boerne is a really nice area.

Maybe check out Emerald Forest. I know there are a several homes with Texas basements... no clue if they are on the market or not
Another vote for Inwood as just a lovely established neighborhood in a great location. Deerfield too. Homes are a bit older (~20 years.)
