From SA to Boerne: 9 Neighborhoods for Hill Country Transfers

Don’t get us wrong...we love San Antonio. But sometimes, even the noise of the city can’t drown out that clear-cut, crystalline call of the Texas Hill Country.

For those interested in making that first, exciting move north of the Alamo City, we’ve compiled a list of best Boerne neighborhoods for San Antonio transfers. From beautiful floor plans and luxury amenities to historic architecture and great schools, take a look at where you might fit in the Boerne community!

Napa Oaks

With a median listing price in the mid-$300k’s, Napa Oaks lives up to its elegant name without breaking the bank. Minutes from the heart of Boerne, this scenic community boasts custom estates, generous lots, mature oaks, and (of course) sweeping views of the Hill Country landscape. A prime example, 8719 Gelvani Grove is perched on a cul-de-sac, featuring updated technology, an open floorplan, and gorgeous design details.

Split into two different subdivisions, Sablechase has the feeling of a small, intimate community with the amenities and quality of a master-planned subdivision.

Sablechase Classic and Sablechase Premier each offer various floor plans that range from the mid-$200k’s to the $350k’s.
