One of the best parts of living in Central Texas is the sheer amount of space there is. Though it’s home to some of the state’s biggest cities (Austin, San Antonio, San Marcos, New Braunfels, etc.), it’s not just back-to-back subdivisions, traffic-filled roads, and overcrowded schools. There’s still plenty of acreage, land and natural beauty – and that’s part of what makes it stand out from other parts of the state (and country!)

And for many people, that’s the draw of the San Antonio area – its ability to combine big-city amenities with the spaciousness and tranquility of country living.

Are you looking for a new home, but want a little more room to spread out than traditional suburban communities offer? These San Antonio acreage communities may be the right fit:

Copper Ridge
Located Northeast of San Antonio in the beautiful New Braunfels area, Copper Ridge is an up-and-coming community that offers five-star amenities (like resort-style pools, tennis and basketball courts, a private park, an events pavilion, a 24-hour guarded and gated entry and more) and expansive, scenic lots. Home sites range between 1 and 3 acres and boast mature trees, striking views and a prime location near the entertainment, dining and shopping of San Antonio, Austin and New Braunfels.

With land to spare, Saratoga is the perfect place to put down roots and build a life. Offering a healthy market of beautiful, sprawling estates, as well as acres and acres of land on which to build, this Northeastern San Antonio community is perfect for households of all sizes. The best part? Because of the neighborhood’s convenient location in Guadalupe County, residents enjoy low property taxes, allowing them save money and better enjoy that many amenities Saratoga’s location affords.

River Place at Gruene
In the historic district of Gruene, River Place offers lots, land and scenic views to boot. Though the community dates back more than a century, areas of the town are still being built out to this day. Nearly 40 spacious garden and waterfront lots (nestled right along the Guadalupe River) as currently available. Lots start at 1 acre and go up from there.

Newcombe Estates
The only boutique country club community in the San Antonio area, Newcombe Estates offers all the trimmings, with land and scenic views to spare. The neighborhood’s sprawling, tree-shaded lots start at just $70,000 and range from .25 to 3 acres in size. Residents can opt for custom-built cottage, conventional or estate homes that run up to $1.2 million; either way, they’ll enjoy access to the John Newcombe Country Club, which boasts pools, tennis courts, fitness classes and social events for all ages.

Vintage Oaks
Still in its early stages, Vintage Oaks is Northeastern San Antonio community with hundreds of spacious, expansive lots available. Choose from home sites between 1 and 14 acres, and build your dream home from the ground up. Lots boasts panoramic views, rolling hills and centuries-old trees and foliage. There are even gated and non-gated options.

Located in New Braunfels, Havenwood is the ideal spot if you want space, luxury and security all in one. Gated and incredibly spacious, Havenwood boasts a whopping 1,200 acres of space, including hundreds of 1 to 3 acre lots for both custom and semi-custom homes. Existing homes are available too, and they range anywhere $300,000 to $500,000.
