While luxury, master-planned communities in the Texas Hill Country are certainly not rarity (the stunning landscape lends itself to views and natural features too desirable for anything else), the founders of Newcombe Tennis Ranch put their creativity to work, innovating plenty of ways to set this upscale neighborhood apart. Case and point: rather than stick with the conventional “golf course community” model, Australian tennis personality John Newcombe founded his namesake estates around one of the premier tennis facilities in the world: Newk’s Tennis Ranch and the John Newcombe Academy (recognized by many as having the best adult programs in the country).
Nestled in an area with plenty of original Texas history, Newcombe Estates is located in a classic section of Central Texas, a mere 15 miles from the sparkling expanse of Canyon Lake and less than four miles northwest of downtown New Braunfels. Both incredibly popular locales, Canyon Lake and New Braunfels offer totally different, yet integral pieces of the Hill Country lifestyle: that tranquil, relaxing “lake life” (Canyon Lake), along with a dose of rich German heritage and small-town charm (New Braunfels).
However, what is a great location without a great home in which to enjoy it? Thankfully, Newcombe Tennis Ranch doesn’t skimp when it comes to home quality, diversity, and premium acreage. Offering over 200 premium acreage homesites (with several ready for your brand-new custom dream house), Newcombe Estates is committed to well-designed excellence, complete with brand-new construction, gorgeous curb appeal, natural building materials, top-of-the-line appliances, open floor plans, and more. Because this neighborhood began construction in 2010, homeowners enjoy untarnished modern conveniences and the latest home construction innovations (from the $250s and up into the millions).

Currently in the last phase of development, Newcombe Estates is offering 2.5-acre home sites in Wimbledon Park, which boasts mature landscaping and sprawling live oaks.
Along with the perk of a world-renowned tennis facility (complete with rigorous training programs, week-long clinics, weekend resort-style vacations, and more), Newcombe Tennis Ranch offers the added perk of a $2.1 million country club! Set with stunning Hill Country views, this incredible members-only facility boasts a full-service fitness club (with various classes like strength & conditioning, aerobic, pilates, and yoga), a resort-style outdoor swimming pool, picnic areas, 13 lighted outdoor tennis courts, indoor and outdoor lounge areas with flat screen TVs, a full service pro shop, and a Kid’s Club.
Additionally, in order to let residents take full advantage of the surrounding Hill Country landscape, John Newcombe Estate was designed and planned to accommodate even the most ambitious outdoorsmen (and outdoorswomen!). Featuring onsite catch-and-release fishing ponds (stocked with native fish), walking and biking trails, and plenty of ancient oak trees, Newcombe Tennis Ranch’s amenities go beyond just “tennis”.
For the parents in the neighborhood (or simply those concerned with home values), Newcombe Estate’s school zoning is nothing less than excellent. Students from this neighborhood attend the highly acclaimed New Braunfels ISD, a district recognized for its teachers, academics, and diversity. For the most part, Newcombe Estate parents will be dropping their kids off at New Braunfels High School, Oak Run Middle School, and Veramendi Elementary School.
Created with a playful and lighthearted personality in mind, Newcombe Tennis Ranch combines the luxury expected of a Hill Country neighborhood with unique touches, innovative amenities, and excellent schools. However, for those interested in a custom-built home with waterfront, I might suggest River Chase or Riverforest. For those looking for additional options, I recommend widening your home search to include Copper Ridge and Havenwood at Hunter’s Crossing. No matter where you end up settling in the New Braunfels area, the Hill Country lifestyle is right at your fingertips.
