I like it a lot. The location is good because it is almost right in the middle of I-10, 1604 and 281. You are probably 10 minutes from the airport. There is an HEB very near by and the schools are generally very good.

The bad - I don't like that it is in the flight path for the airport. you do get quite a loud rush when the planes come directly overhead. Churchill High School - which is the High School for this area - has kind of dropped in prestige over the years (still good, but has its share of problems). Traffic - like anywhere in SA - can be bad at the busiest times of the day.

All in all, I would move there - in fact that is probably where my wife and I will look in a few years when we decide to sell our home.

Wow thanks Dendox! That was helpful! We know we would be in the flight path but for some reason that really outweighs living far out for us. My husband works near the airport and it would be great ti be that nearby! Thanks for the good info!

We used to live in Camino Real in the airport flight path and to tell you the truth after a while it was just back ground noise.

My grandmother lived right across from the train tracks out in the country (meaning when the trains came by they were hauling a**). Whenever I would take friends to visit growing up - they would complain about lack of sleep and the awful noise. We never even noticed it until people said something about it - then only for that brief moment.

This is a beautiful neighborhood. Even though it has a new section called "The Oaks at Vista Del Norte" which is gated, everything blends. The homeowners' fee is $265 a year I think. I has a community pool with lifeguard, tennis courts, basketball court, soccer field, park, and paths fo walking and strolling baby. The grounds are lovely and because all the homes are custom built it does not have a dated look. It is convenient to Wurtzbach Pky if you work near USAA or the Medical Center and about 20 minutes to Ft. Sam or Randolph. As for the airplane noise, everything in this central radius has it.....Hollywood Park, Deerfield, Hill Country Village, etc. Home values have gone up quicker than your best mutual fund.

I just showed homes in this area on Thursday. It is a beautiful area. My only word of advise is to look at the future plans for Wurzbach Parkway. It is planned to go thru that area if all plans go thru.

Other than that, I love the area!

The airplane noise becomes background noise for the most part. It is worth noting that about 95% of the time the flightpath is for landing aircraft so the noise level is pretty low to begin with. When they take off in this direction they are much louder, but that is not very often.

My parents live in this neighborhood. Very nice. The lots are large - mature trees and mostly custom homes. It is where we hope to move in a few years. Same area as where we currently live - but a couple steps up in home quality and value.
