If you’re looking to build your new home in an up-and-coming end of the River City, look no further than these new neighborhoods.

1. Mission del Lago.

Called “the pride of south San Antonio,” Mission del Lago is a master planned community of  custom homes surrounding the beautiful Mission del Lago Golf Course in a neighborhood of quiet cul-de-sacs.  If you’re thinking that this sounds like a cookie-cutter subdivision, think again. Mission del Lago blends diverse styles and sizes of homes designed to meet varying tastes and budgets. The community borders the 1,200-acre Mitchell Lake Wildlife Refuge and Audubon Center and will soon feature the Medina Walking Trail. For the children, school is just a short walk to renowned Gallardo Elementary School, which offers its playground to neighborhood residents when school’s closed.

2. Alamo Ranch

A one-time working cattle ranch, Alamo Ranch is now the largest master planned community in San Antonio, in the city’s northwest corner. The neighborhood is in the award-winning Northside Independent School District and features energy-efficient single-family nestled between two golf courses. Amenities and shopping are also close at hand, and Alamo Ranch is an ideal neighborhood for young families

3. Cobblestone

This master planned, gated community is situated close golfing, shopping, entertainment, restaurants, colleges, military bases, and San Antonio’s bustling employment centers. It’s also minutes from Medina Lake and Government Canyon State Natural Area and has its own amenities, such as a swimming pool, a playscape, and a sports court. Cobblestone’s homes feature carriage-style garage doors, and the stone, stucco or brick facades. Residents can choose from an array of features and décor options that fit their style, their way of life, and their wallets. The neighborhood is near Alamo ranch and is in the Northside Independent School District as well.

4. Kallison Ranch

Like Alamo Ranch, Kallison ranch is a former working cattle ranch used to discover better farming and ranching methods. Today, this master planned community in the northwest of San Antonio features energy-efficient homes that come with the price of the home. No need for pricey upgrades here. Kallison Ranch homes feature a dozen single-story and two-story floors plans ranging from $160,000s to the low-$200,000′s.
