Think Outside the Loop: 8 Inspiring Luxury Homes North of 1604

While many may associate the phrase “luxury lifestyle” with high-rise urban condos and the extravagant variety of a big city, Texas luxury is all about wide-open space and Hill Country views.

From rustic and elegant to downright contemporary, these jaw-dropping estates prove that the most inspired local real estate is almost always located north of San Antonio city limits.

A Contemporary Retreat

103 Ammann Rd: $1,690,000

Located in the coveted El Refugio neighborhood (just minutes from the utter charm of downtown Boerne), 103 Ammann Rd is surrounded by thirty beautifully manicured acres populated by a wealth of mature Oak trees. Design by revered architect Ken Bently and built by Clive Custom Homes, this home features stunning modern elements, including high ceilings, large windows, an island kitchen, a private office and study, tons of storage, and a gorgeous master suite.

Rustic Hill Country Manor

140 Fair Springs: $1,590,000

Reminiscent of a classic Hill Country manor, 140 Fair Springs combines rustic elegance with modern amenities. A Jack Arnold custom home in the Menger Springs neighborhood, this home features a stunning master suite (with walk-through shower and soaking tub), four fireplaces, three living areas, a pool room, and an incredible kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances. The Texas look is completed by wood-beamed ceilings, as well as travertine and hardwood flooring throughout (as well as the accompanying two-and-a-half acres of Hill Country land).

Mediterranean Getaway

2 Belcourt Place: $1,299,900

Located in the famously luxurious Dominion neighborhood, 2 Belcourt Place is a north-lying oasis in every sense of the word. Upon entering the custom mahogany front doors of this Mediterranean-inspired estate, you are immediately invited to admire a breathtaking view of the sparkling pool (and ten-foot rock water feature). Besides a gorgeous interior feature (chef’s kitchen, custom moldings, heated floors, and California closets), the exterior luxuries include a heated pool, spa, outdoor kitchen, custom fireplace, and a pizza oven imported from Italy!

Old-School Elegance

6310 Sevilla Circle: $1,050,000

One peek inside this elegant estate, and it’s no surprise that 6310 Sevilla Circle was a former Toll Brothers model home. Described as having “limitless detail throughout”, this one-of-a-kind home offers a level of luxury that raises the bar. The rustic exposed wood beams are offset by traditional luxury features like soaring ceilings, iron railings, and a dual staircase. Also included are a wine room, outdoor culinary center, chef’s kitchen, a state-of-the-art media room, and more!

Sleek Texas Mansion

7 Kings Manor: $999,900

Priced at just under a million, 7 Kings Manor is a purely custom built masterpiece in the Dominion. The open concept floor plan is ideal for hosts who like to entertain, and the large study (with thirty-foot ceilings) is the perfect escape. Other luxury details include a stunning master retreat, workout room, chef’s kitchen, and an oversized outdoor oasis (with lush landscape, Keith Zars pool, and outdoor kitchen!).

Modern European Chic

11 Naples Court: $899,900

Built with contemporary design elements and adorned with absolutely stunning European features, 11 Naples Court lives up to its exotic name. The home’s open concept floor plan lends itself to an effortless sort of elegance, beginning with Mahogany hand carved doors and complemented by travertine floors, hand-selected light fixtures, and custom hand troweled wall textures. Our favorite nook has to be the custom 400-bottle temperature-controlled wine room!
