Hill Country Village


Hill Country Villiage is a beautiful place to live in San Antonio. The fact that it's inside loop 1604 gives it a feel of being in the city. But the fact is, Hill Country Village is just that - a hill country town inside the city. The rolling hills, giant oaks and deer freely roaming give this small town a taste of country living right in San Antonio.

Hill Country Village Living

Homes here could be classified as "ranchettes" in some cases as driving through Hill Country Village will showcase horse stables and riding arenas. This neighborhood has such a diverse collection of homes that one might be surprised that some of the residents live in homes the same size as the quarters for the live-in maid at a residence just up the street. Hill Country Village is a haven for wildlife and a short drive through the neighborhood will showcase ducks, deer, and swans. Some pieces of property have small ponds and I wouldn't be surprised if they were stocked with fish. In fact, some San Antonio residents slowly drive through Hill Country Village just to watch and photograph the "almost tame" deer. It is a beautiful community with natural hill country surroundings giving it a "secluded" feel.

Hill Country Village Homes

Houses in this area, as stated above, are quite diverse in size, architecture and appearance. You may find a house sitting on several acres of land and the home takes up one of those acres. There are gigantic houses with pillars and front gates that required a team of engineers to construct. Believe me, I've seen brick drives going several hundred yards to the residence with a front gate that cost more than I can afford in a house. Other times, you'll see a modest house with a neatly manicured and landscaped front yard. Hill Country Village is a very unique community with beautiful homes and some being outright massive.
