Hello everyone. I was just wondering if anyone knew anything about this subdivision? The good/bad/ugly? My husband is black & I am white & we have two young children, anyone know if this is a good neighborhood for us? Any info on this area would be greatly appreciated!

I can't seem to find any information on the internet about it.

Who are the builders? What side of town is it on?

El Sendero, built by KB, is between Potranco to the North, Hunt Lane to the West, and Ingram Road to the East and South (in 78245 zip code). The homes (about 10 years old) are newer than Heritage Northwest to the West and are not bad (many houses are all brick), though the area around there is a little rough. There should be no problem as far as ethnicity goes. There is a fairly new elementary school just down the road on Hunt Lane, and Pease Middle School is next door on Hunt Lane. The new Stevens High School is West on Potranco.

it's in Northwest SA, 78245 zip. Near Ingram Rd./Lakeside Pkwy/Hunt Ln. There is an apt. complex right next to it-Oaks of Westlakes, maybe? All of the street names are spanish-derived: Las Puertas, Via Espana, Tres Caminos...
I'm giving you all of this info by looking on Google Earth

The area isnt that bad. A lot of new homes are being built in the area. The area does get rough south of Marbach or inside the 410.

I believe that the zip there is 78227 not 78245

78245 is correct. I would say the area in itself is still decent. I would consider the "Far West" down to earth people. You have your handful of punk kids in the area. Mixed race area, crowded on Marbach at times. You could easily walk or jog in the area and not feel threatened.

Personally, I would go further north or further west for just a little more money spent.

What the population in El Sendero? just wondering because neighboring Heritage subdivision peaked at around 12,000 people....feels more like a suburb considering Heritage being larger than most suburban municipalities in San Antonio, and the fact its bored by Potranco, Marbach, and the loop. There is also allot of young people in the area, and ethnically diverse (Hispanics, blacks, whites, and two or more races mixed).
