I forgot about Castroville. It is west of San Antonio, but with so much development occuring in west San Antonio right now, you would be close to a lot of stuff. It is a nice community.

I second that. Of note, though, is the political bickering going on in the Castroville city council at this time.

You aren't really going to get a "country" or "out" feel within that 15-20 minute drive, I'm sorry to say. There are plenty of nice places with big back yards though within that range.

Don't forget about La Vernia. A great, authentic "country" town near SA. Many more ranches, good school district and great people. I'm sure you could find something in the 150 range there.

I think that La Vernia is a little higher in price.

$150k for a house and a couple of acres? Good luck with that!

Cheers! M2

Boerne and Bulverde are quite a bit higher because they are more popular and with more picturesque views of the hill country. Fair Oaks Ranch is premium land, as well as Bulverde and Boerne right now. It's because it's the hill country. La Vernia is farmable land, hill country land is all rock and scenery.

But, realistically, it is next to impossible to find a couple of acres and a house for under 160k anywhere!

For a nice home on an acre in the new developments in La Vernia will cost you about 200,000 and up. The lots are not smaller than 3/4 of an acre and the all the homes are custom with restrictions.

I live between Seguin and New Braunfels, off 46. You can get an acre with a 3-2-2 home for $130K. It is flat farm land on this side of the highway. 2 acres would probably run you 150-160. On the other side of the hiway is the Guadalupe River. Cost would be much higher there.
