What would “On the Hill” be without its coveted hilltop location? From New Braunfels city center, this scenic neighborhood encompasses the homes primarily reached by traveling just up the hills of Fredericksburg Rd, Lakeview Blvd, Walnut, Mission Dr, and Landa Park Dr. This central location means the vibrancy of downtown New Braunfels can be easily reached within minutes from any On the Hill home (and access to both Austin and San Antonio is a breeze). Homeowners in this well-established area praise it for its friendly, relaxed, classic neighborhood feel. As one resident raved: “I grew up on the Hill and loved it! Very fond memories of that area... deer playing in the yard, close to Landa park, etc. I walked to school and got to watch the Landa Park fireworks from our roof.” Truly, if there is any quintessential New Braunfels neighborhood, it’s this one.
Adding to its “family friendly” reputation, On the Hill’s school zoning ensures both a high property value and a high-quality education. Students within this community are zoned to the highly acclaimed New Braunfels ISD schools like Seele Elementary, Carl Schurz Elementary, Oak Run Middle School, New Braunfels Middle School, and New Braunfels High School (though some homes may be zoned to additional schools within the district based on location).
Widely regarded as one of New Braunfels’ most established and distinguished neighborhoods, the variety of On the Hill homes is anything but ordinary, featuring everything from stunning hardwood decks to knotty pine walls, vintage front doors, and covered porches. Built across a comprehensive range of architectural styles (from stunning historic estates to renovated mid-century bungalows), the one feature that does unite each property is homesite size: most of the homes in On the Hill are built with large yards filled with towering trees.
On the Hill’s incredible location leads it to be beloved by permanent residents and vacationers alike, with many returning seasonally for that taste of the Hill Country city-dwellers crave. Due to the variety in home styles and sizes, homes prices typically range from the high $200’s up to $1 Million. For those seeking a luxury home with a bit more acreage, I would recommend Vintage Oaks, Copper Ridge, River Chase, Riverforest, and Havenwood. These communities offer a variety of neighborhood amenities. Several of these neighborhoods boast private access to the Guadalupe River, and others offer sweeping panoramic views of the Hill Country.
While On the Hill may not be a master-planned luxury subdivision, its prime location in the bustling town of New Braunfels lends itself to a unique set of neighborhood amenities. Rather than a neighborhood pool, homeowners enjoy wildly convenient access to Landa Park, where families can picnic and lounge under the shade of giant, ancient oak trees before hopping in the sparkling Comal River or Landa Lake. The park also offers walking and jogging trails, a golf course, playgrounds, and even a miniature train that runs around the perimeter of the 51-acre park. Additionally, On the Hill’s proximity to New Braunfels classic attractions means local restaurants, live music, boutique shopping, the farmers market, and Wurstfest are just up the road!
