The Dominion: San Antonio’s destination for peaceful, gated luxury
There are so many great places to live in San Antonio that it helps to have an expert on your side. The Neighborhood Guide presented by Kuper Sotheby's International Realty gives you insider access from the agents who live and work there, providing in-the-know info about your possible new community.
One of the first things real estate agent Paola Seifernoticed about The Dominion is that it is reminiscent of the place she grew up: Madrid, Spain.
“The nature all around and the master plan reminds me of the place where I used to live in Madrid called La Moraleja,” she says. So she was more than happy to make it her new location for both work and home.
“Here at The Dominion, you can find some of the most unique and opulent custom homes in San Antonio, from a charming one-story garden home to a 9,000-square-foot estate,” says Seifer. “The best architects in the city have designed many of the homes, making the neighborhood even more beautiful.”
Residents also enjoy numerous amenities, such as lavish greenbelts and man-made lakes along with the incredible schools in Northside ISD and the highest level of security and safety. Guards are stationed at The Dominion's three main gates 24 hours a day.
Seifer’s favorite hidden-gem park, The Lakes, is located close to the main entrance. And adjacent to the neighborhood is The Dominion Country Club, which has an 18-hole, 260-acre golf course.
Seifer offered up a few more of her personal favorites about life in the Dominion. Here's her guide to the area:
Where to eat & drink
“Aldo’s Ristorante Italiano and SILO Terrace Oyster Bar are two fabulous restaurants just across the street from the neighborhood,” says Seifer.
She also recommends the bar at J-Prime Steakhouse and the vintage-chic Tardif's American Brasserie for a great cocktail and vibe.
Where to play
Golfers will want to head to The Dominion Country Club.
For retail therapy that’s only seven minutes away, Seifer suggests The Shops at La Cantera and The Rim shopping center. Both destinations also have various pop-up markets, fests, and seasonal events like summer movies, music, and yoga.
What to see
The Moon’s Daughter on the 20th floor of the Thompson San Antonio hotel is a must. The enchanting indoor-outdoor rooftop lounge and bar floats high above the River Walk and the views of the twinkling city at night are incredible.
Where to live
“The Dominion has an assortment of styles that all harmonize together, from traditional to Tuscan-style to contemporary,” says Seifer.
One prime example of a home in the neighborhood is 6307 Granada Way. Seifer was the buyer's agent on this six-bedroom beauty, which boasts statement-making architecture along with features like a wine cellar and a huge primary suite with an expansive dressing room and closet.
“Paola’s knowledge of the market and the area helped us to decide on the perfect home very quickly,’ says the buyer. “She knew we were new to the area and helped us get settled with several local recommendations, too.”
