Sorry I am sure this topic has been beat to death but...

My husband and I are originally from the San Antonio area and lived in Houston for the past 5 years or so. We are moving back soon and would like some input about the stone oak area, and some nice neighborhoods (with some good ammenities). My husband and I will more than likely be working out of the two hospitals over there so we would like to stay relatively close without a horrific commute. We would love to be in Spring Branch, but I have heard the 281 traffic has gotten ridiculous. We both are not really neighborhood people, but if we do live in a neighborhood I want it to be a great experience. I would really like to be somewhere where there are a lot of 30-40 somethings and kids for my two young daughters to play with. I don't really know anything about the schools there and will be possibly open to either public or private if anyone has any information about that. Thanks for any input you may have..


Please if you have any rude comments to make, do it somewhere else.

281 traffic has gotten much worse over the last 5 years, and it's probably going to get worse before it gets better. For people that aren't into the "neighborhood" thing, Hollywood Park is still a reasonably affordable option ($350k) that should eliminate most of the 281/1604 traffic hassle.

Hill Country Village, just to the south of HP is another option, but it has much larger lots and is more expensive than HP.

IMO and based on test scores, both feed into the best cluster of NEISD schools that are available inside of 1604.

Getting into HCV is going to be difficult under $750,000, and that's for a home that needs updating.

HCV probably out of our price range right now... My grandmother actually has a house in HCV, she just recently passed away. The house is in need alot of repairs and probably more than we want to spend (its not on the market either). I am sure we would love it over there.

281N has gotten horrible with no real relief in sight. If you are willing to brave a community in Stone Oak there are two very nice communities - the Quarry at Iron Mountain and Iron Mountain Ranch. Both have large homesites and lots of young families with kids. The price range is the high $200K to $400K.
