San Antonio suburb's popular master-planned community grows with new garden homes
A new mixed-use, master-planned community is booming in northeast San Antonio. Located in Schertz, The Crossvine has announced the addition of 77 new garden homes to the 550-acre development.
Offering smaller, hassle-free yards, connectivity to inner greenbelt courts, and accessibility to the trails, parks, pools, and other outdoor spaces popular with current residents, the 77 stand-alone homes contribute to the community's continued mission to provide residents with the space and amenities to spend time together and build relationships with neighbors.
“We are thrilled to get started on this next phase of The Crossvine and to bring in more aspects of new urbanism into the development,” said Bradley Bechtol, Manager of Schertz 1518, Ltd., developers of The Crossvine. “The highly anticipated garden homes will be a welcome new addition to The Crossvine, especially for younger families and retired veterans who are looking to buy homes with yards that are easy to maintain within our unique master-planned community.”
Ranging in size from 1,375 to 2,400 square feet, the new homes will also range in price, starting around $400,000. Their architecture will add variety to the neighborhood while maintaining the classic Texas-heritage style emblematic of The Crossvine's existing homes.
Built by David Weekley Homes and Scott Felder Homes, there are six Weekley floor plans available and six from Felder. Both sets of plans include two to four bedrooms, while Weekley homes will offer two to two-and-a-half baths and Felder's will range from two to three baths. All homes will include two-car, rear-access garages and greenbelt-facing front porches.
The Crossvine recently worked with the City of Schertz Parks Department to build a basketball/pickle ball court at Heritage Oaks Park. In 2021, the neighborhood added new amenities, including a community garden, two bocce ball courts and picnic tables under 100-year old oaks, and the continuation of trails, lending libraries, and mail kiosks as trailheads. These complement the existing pool, pavilion, amphitheater and multiple parks already enjoyed by the community.
