A Rural Suburban San Antonio Spread With Views of the Skyline

More

Location: Boerne, Texas

Price: $1,795,000

Situated more than 30 miles from downtown San Antonio, this house still boasts views of that city's tallest building, the Tower of Americas, thanks to a hilltop site. The stunning views from this ten-acre promontory also include the scrubby hills of San Antonio's rural suburbs. The house itself is tucked behind a pair of security gates and is part of the lauded development of Estancia at Thunder Valley. The neighborhood maintains communal riding facilities, a gymnasium, a sports court, and a par-three golf course. While not terribly aesthetically pleasing from an architectural standpoint, the house benefits greatly from the sweeping views and an infinity pool sited to take full advantage of the vistas. The four-bed, four-bath, 4,700-square-foot home was built by a well-regarded local builder in 2007 and is currently listed for $1,800,000.
