Anyone provide any input on Rockwell Ranch near New Braunfels? I am thinking about purchasing a lot out there.

We were thinking about looking out there too. My sister in law bought a lot out there but they aren't looking to build for several more years though. They like the area, but I think that's too far north for me. With both the husband and I working at Lackland, the commute from that direction gives me a migraine just thinking about it.

I think we've decided to look at some areas in La Vernia and Floresville: Miller's Crossing, Vintage Oaks Ranch, Copper Creek, Rosewood, Legacy Ranch, Abrego Lake and Eden-Crossing are just a few. Eden-Crossing is very new. About 300 lots and only about 4 homes being built right now. Most lots are about 1-2 acres with 3 lots having about 3 acres. I personally would like 5 or more....just because I'm sick of sitting on top of my neighbors in the city and want room to spread out.

Not looking to buy tomorrow, but am keeping my eyes and ears open.

Recommendations gladly accepted.

Just be careful of the location, in case you weren't aware of the proposed New Braunfels Outer Loop!

A friend of mine was going to buy out there, then learned how close one of the routes came to the lot he was looking at. He asked the builder and got vague responses, so he and his wife decided to look elsewhere.

Just be sure this isn't the case with the area you are looking at!

Cheers! M2

Rockwall Ranch is nice, but would make me nervous if building a higher end home. There are too many different levels of homes in there. If you're building on the lower end ($300K - $450K), it'll be great. If you're building on the higher end, you'll be overbuilding, as many have done.

Friends of mine bought a house there several months ago and love it. I don't know anything about the NB outer loop but two issues come to mind:

1. Commute: They bought there specifically because it's 10 minutes from their office in Garden Ridge but most people will have a very long commute otherwise.

2. Flooding: During the heavy rains they need to stay home and basically get trapped there because Schoenthal road going toward Rockwall Ranch floods.

Default Loop

From what I could tell the New Braunfels loop won't be too close to Rockwell. In fact having a loop somewhat close is a good thing as far as a commute goes.
