For what it is worth we are also looking at Presido. We currently have 3,500 house -- with 0.5 acre yard. Way too much work! We live in this area and it is a great location. We have dogs and walk Eisenhower all the time. There will also be the new park (Volker) and also the new HEB at NW Military so nice location - plus tons of good restaurants - that we can afford to go to with all of the money we save on our utilities. We also have 2 kids and the yard size does not bother us too much.

We had a similiar sized yard at a townhome we rented in VA. IMHO not big enough.

Also, a 10x10 room is sufficient size for the kids now, but what about down the road?

Thanks, everyone! I think we'll try to find something else with a larger yard....and bigger bedrooms for the kids...

Even though we don't spent a lot of time outside during the summer, we do play with the kids outside during the cooler months. Plus, we have all these toys (like a cozy coupe and powerwheels, climber, sandbox,....) that our kids couldn't use at all if we were to move to a house with no yard....the more I think about it, the more I just cannot fathom the idea of not having any yard at all....

Also we'd have to pay a whole lot of money for a fairly small house and no yard (considering the price point.) I think I will be looking at other houses in the area that will have more space overall and probably for less money, too. Also, my husband is worried about the parking situation....eventually our household will have four cars (once the kids get their permits) and then what?! I just don't think that subdivision will work for us after all... (

I think that you will have a very hard time getting anything close pricewise in this area. If you need more space you should look inside 1604 at the older neighbourhoods along NW Military - Hunters Creeek I think!

Good luck

My wife and I have two kids...4 and 1. Our house is about 2100 sq. ft. and our yard is over-sized. I think it depends on how you use the space. We built a huge deck...which means less yard to maintain. And, we put in a lot of landscaping that was easy to maintain. The end result...a very peaceful, shady backyard that can accomodate our family as well as family friends.
