Default Timberwood Park anyone?

Looking at possibly relocating and interested in knowing any inside scoop on the Timberwood Park neighborhood. Homes seem to have nice spacious back yards, but wondering if this is close at all to major hwys to commute to lackland?? Time to drive, etc good schools, shopping nearby

Is this an area to pursue or can you recommend any other gated communities suitable for young couple with 2 med to large dogs in a safe neighborhood with amenities, pool, etc. in the 250-275K range.

Thanks

It would be great for you.....if you weren't at Lackland. Timberwood is great, once you're there. The main problem is that the two ways to access it are HORRIBLE for traffic and though that'll be fixed, it'll probably be at least 5 years out. It's too far from Lackland for you.

I was afraid of that. The other areas I am interested in are Hollywood Park, Shavano Park, but few houses seem to be available in that area.

I saw an interesting listing in Summerglen, but not sure of the location either.

Thanks so much for the help.

Check out the area surrounding Shavano Park. If you liked the homes you may be able to find a winner that isn't in Shavano Park proper.

Hollywood Park or Shavano Park to Lackland probably isn't all that easy either...

Timberwood Park has had water problems in the past. Until Bexar Met (the local water utility) builds a new water tower in that area, there is a very strong likelihood of homes in that area being subject to severe water restrictions well before any other subdivision in the nearby counties.

The water problem is solved. They are building it quickly on blanco.

Lackland is far though. 30 mins with no traffic. An hour with traffic.

The water problem as far as the Distribution System may be solved . If we ever go through another Summer like we just did (and yes we will) Bexar Met will no doubt place pretty tough restrictions upon you. I would go sparingly on yard grass and focus on Native Texas Plants. In General your Water Bills will be higher also.

i'm a newbie, but had to add my 2 cents, that living in the north, 281/1604 area is very congested if your job will be at Lackland.

However, if you are job hunting in the north area, then it's a great place to be. I have family that lives there and they love it.

Moderator cut: advertising

Thanks!

I think Shavano Park would be easier than Timberwood Park. You take out the 281/1604 traffic.
