Why Move to Texas Hill Country?

Categories: Living in San Antonio TX | Posted: July 29, 2020

At Weston Dean Custom Homes, we take care to tailor every detail of your custom home to the unique needs of you and your family. In many ways, it’s the little things that set our homes apart. At the same time, one of the most important details of your dream home is the location. As a San Antonio custom home builder, we’re privileged to build one of a kind homes in Texas Hill Country. This unique and picturesque region of southern/central Texas is the perfect place to build a custom home.

Texas Hill Country is characterized by its signature rolling hills and centuries-old oak trees. For many, moving to Texas Hill Country means escaping the city and enjoying an older and often forgotten small-town way of life. The lots we build on are very diverse, but what many have in common is an abundance of open space, trees, and privacy. We’ve built custom homes in truly rural parts of the region, but there are also many great communities you can be a part of in Hill Country. There’s a rare balance you’ll find in Texas Hill Country, between the quiet peacefulness you crave, and the sense of community in town. You can enjoy a large, wooded lot, and still get to know your neighbors.

Texas Hill Country landscape

The beautiful nature and safety of Texas Hill Country attract many retirees every year, and Texas of course is a great state for retirees, financially speaking. More recently, Texas Hill Country has become more sought after among younger families and families raising children. Children can blossom here and their parents can feel confident in a friendly and safe environment. Sometimes it seems like a lost tradition, letting your kids explore the world around them in a carefree, curious, and adventurous way. Not in Texas Hill Country. The region is rich with untouched nature to explore, and it’s a great place to be a kiddo. The best part is that much of the wooded and brush-covered expanses of Texas Hill Country are protected land. If you build on a lot in a secluded, quiet area immersed in nature, you can expect it to stay that way.

Your new life in Texas Hill Country will feature some of the best of what small-town Texas has to offer, but at the same time, you’ll be within reach of big-city amenities. Many homeowners comfortably commute to work in San Antonio, and neighboring cities like New Braunfels and Boerne, TX. Working from home in Texas Hill Country would be a dream come true for many, and home offices are best executed with the touch and flexibility of a custom home builder. Access to the city via scenic drives on country roads make life in Texas Hill Country the best of both worlds.

The best way to get to know Texas Hill Country is to see it for yourself. Whether you’re looking to build on your lot, or you’re just starting to look for a lot, Weston Dean Custom Homes can guide you to your dream home. Give us a call to learn more about Texas Hill Country and to get started.

Summer in San Antonio

Categories: Living in San Antonio TX | Posted: July 8, 2020

Summer in San Antonio is the best time of the year, as many of the best events and traditions take place during these months. San Antonio is a vibrant city filled with history, and it always has something new to offer. As a San Antonio custom home builder, Weston Dean Custom Homes is happy to share some of the signature summer happenings of our city.

This probably won’t come as a surprise, but summer in San Antonio is hot! You’ll find average temperatures ranging from the low to high 90s throughout the summer months. As long as you drink water and use sunscreen as needed, you’ll welcome the summer heat.

Visit the San Antonio Zoo

The San Antonio Zoo is a perfect place to spend a Saturday during the San Antonio summer. A mix of indoor and outdoor exhibits makes it easy to enjoy the weather and cool off when you need to. The zoo has over a dozen major exhibits to explore. Watch the big cats and other African animals soak up the sun. Or see the exotic species in the reptile house. The zoo could easily become a favorite for you and your kids during the summer.

Jam at Fiesta Noche del Rio

This outdoor musical “folklorico” performance is a longstanding tradition in San Antonio. Fiesta Noche Del Rio celebrates the history of San Antonio with song and dance from Mexico, Argentina, Texas, and California. When the fiesta returns in 2021, it will be the 65th year San Antonians gather under the starry sky at the river walk to learn about the roots of their city and have a great time.

Hang Out at The Riverwalk

The centerpiece of downtown San Antonio is the iconic San Antonio Riverwalk. One story beneath the regular streets of San Antonio, a pedestrian street winds through the city on either side of the San Antonio River. Along the 15 mile path, restaurants, bars, shops, gardens, and historical sites serve tourists and natives alike. The Riverwalk is hugely popular in the summer because of the abundance of shade and the cool breeze. The Riverwalk is an essential destination if you’re visiting San Antonio, but even living in San Antonio it will always feel like a fresh experience. Again, there are 15 beautiful miles to explore.

Have Fun at Six Flags Fiesta Texas

The biggest amusement park in San Antonio is Six Flags, which has been thrilling families in San Antonio since 1992. The park is especially nice in the summer when the water park portion of the park can help you beat the heat. A trip to Six Flags is a guaranteed day of fun and excitement for the whole family.

These are some of the highlights of what summer in San Antonio might look like. In your new custom home in San Antonio, you’re free to spend the rest of your summer free time at all of the great parks around the city, the fascinating museums, or maybe just in your backyard.
