Talking Active neighborhoods for young couple

Are there any neighborhoods around N or NW San Antonio you know to be very neighborly? We looking for a neighborhood that decorates for holidays, neighbors are outside, kids are playing together, an occasional bbq in the summer...love the idea of a community pool and playground. We are coming down from Tulsa to visit in a couple weeks and want zero in on some neighborhoods. Some zip codes we like include 78023, 78249, 78240, 78230, 78250. My husband's office is at the junction of 410 and I-10.

Looking to spend no more than 250K...

Thanks for your help!

Default ???

So no one knows any nice neighborhoods that are family friendly??? We live in Tulsa, OK now, but are moving to SA in a couple months. Don't know anyone and will be having children soon, so looking for a "young couple/stay at home mom" kind of neighborhood on the Northwest or North part of town (not crazy about moving outside of 1604)

Please help!!!

okies,

Sorry nobody's responded to you...we're closing on our new home in Alamo Ranch (Hills @ AR) next Friday. My wife is a stay-at-home with our two kids (3.75 and 10 months). The entire AR community seems to be family-friendly, and I've seen several people out chatting on a weekend where our house is. It's going to be a LARGE community (small city really) once it's completed.

Hope this helps, and good luck with your move!

--Dim

I haven't responded because I don't know any areas like that in San Anotonio- but I'm sure there are some.

I just moved out of one...Churchill Forest off Blanco north of Wurzbach Parkway. It is an up and coming neighborhood located right next to the new Voelcker Ranch Park under development between Blanco and Northwest Military. There are lots of young couples moving in there. My wife an I purchased in there six and a half years ago and loved it. We bought at $65/foot and sold at $101/foot. The houses move fast when they go on the market - especially the one story plans. The only reason we moved was because we wanted a larger lot and a new house...so now we are building in The Quarry at Iron Mountain in Stone Oak. Best of luck on your search.

I believe Crownridge and Stonewall Ranch in the 78256 zip code are fairly neighborly, and they have a few homes in that price range. I don't live in either so I can't say for sure, but they both have active HOA's with lots of neighborhood-type events.

Hi Fellow Okie! I'm originally from Tulsa as well and love living in San Antonio. I am a stay at home mom w/ 2 teens. We live in the 78251 zipcode and are on the west/northwest side of town about 2 miles from SeaWorld. This is a great part of town and is growing! We can get to 410/I10 in about 15-20 minutes from our house. Consider the "Westover" area.....very family friendly. We are a gated community and tight-knit. Lots of stay at home moms and our whole neighborhood gets together for a big street party every year. Houses here run between $200K-$250K.

I KNow that homes in Stonewall start closer at the mid 250s and up, especially since they have sold all the lots.

There aren't many under $250K. I just re-checked, and there's a whopping two homes that fit the criteria, and both are only 1700 sq. foot.

Realtor.com - Search results for 78256

7 Crownridge homes fit the criteria, that might be a more realistic option.
