Copper Ridge

Situated atop a dominant ridgeline, Copper Ridge provides unmatched views of the breathtaking Texas Hill Country. Homes here are built on one to three-acre homesites and residents have access to a number of amenities including a resort-style pool, Texas-style pavilion with fireplace, BBQ grills, and picnic tables, as well as tennis and basketball courts. Cooper Ridge also has winding trails within the gated and guarded community.

Haven Wood at Hunters Crossing

This inclusive estate takes big city conveniences and puts them in your own backyard with a supermarket, pharmacy, electronic shop, hospital, and more within the grounds of Haven Wood at Hunter Crossing. Swimming pools and sport facilities are also available to residents to stay active. Homeowners in Haven Wood at Hunter Crossing have access to a standby generator as well ensuring top-notch uninterrupted service throughout the year.

John Newcombe Estate and Country Club

If you love tennis, then this master-planned country club community may be perfect for you. John Newcombe Estate and Country Club is in the final phase of development with 2 1/2 acre homesites. This community offers a strong social atmosphere at the full-service fitness club with a premier tennis facility operated by Cliff Drysdale Tennis, a pro shop, pools and classes offered through the Fitness Center. A Kid’s Club is also available with professionally supervised play as well as day camps and events.

River Chase

Located between New Braunfels and Canyon Lake, River Chase is at the gateway of Texas Hill Country. This expansive community covers nearly 4,000 acres with access to the Guadalupe River on the western side. Trails along the limestone riverfront beach will expose ancient dinosaur tracks and offer endless opportunities to play and explore. The clubhouse includes the swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts, baseball and softball fields, and a community fishing pond. Homesites measure 1 to five acres allowing you plenty of privacy too.

Vintage Oaks

Named for the 500-year old oak trees that canvas the grounds, Vintage Oaks combines distinct Hill Country views and resort-style amenities. Walk or bike five miles of trails, swim the Olympic-sized pool, host a cookout in the Outdoor Catering Kitchen or spend a quiet afternoon in the native flower garden. Vintage Oaks also has outdoor tennis courts, a regulation soccer field, a Little League baseball field and turf volleyball court to keep residents active.
