Boerne Neighborhood Spotlight: Sablechase

Just minutes from San Antonio, situated near the borders of Boerne, lies the new home community of Sablechase. Featuring homes built by D.R. Horton and Gehan Homes, Sablechase presents a gated community that boasts of oversized homes on large lots in a neighborhood with amenities for everyone.

Located less than a quarter of a mile off I-10 West, past Ralph Fair Road, Sablechase encompasses all the natural beauty of its Hill Country backdrop, while providing its residents the ultimate convenience in location. Because of its close proximity to both San Antonio and Boerne, big city amenities, such as shopping at The Rim or La Cantera, abound while the small town charm of Boerne entices residents to visit Boerne Market Days, Main Street, Cibolo Nature Center, and Guadalupe State Park.

Atop the 420 lots in Sablechase sit both completed homes and barren land waiting for a home to be constructed. These homes, boasting of abundant square footage, present a range of sizes from 1,930 square feet to nearly 4,000 square feet. Between the two builders in the community, possibilities are vast with nearly two-dozen floor plans to choose from.

This 2,123 square foot Gehan home in Sablechase, listed and recently put under contract by KW San Antonio Realtor Leigh Ann Battle, boasts an open floorplan with high ceilings.
