An idyllic haven located in one of the most popular sections of the Texas Hill Country, the waterfront community of River Chase was master planned and impeccably executed to ensure homeowners never lose that increasingly elusive magic of true Hill Country living. Besides the sweeping hilltop views and outstretched oaks, River Chase residents enjoy outdoor features like a beautifully maintained leisure pond (stocked with fish, ducks, and turtles), a butterfly garden, a scenic walking trail, and a charming country barn (a favorite location for the Fall Festival event). However, the “crown jewel” of all outdoor amenities in this neighborhood may be the community-exclusive “River Park”: 58-acres of rolling land that provides private access to over 600 feet of Guadalupe riverfront (perfect for floating, swimming, and kayaking)!
Besides this locally beloved River Park, select homeowners can enjoy the rolling beauty of the Guadalupe from the privacy of their own property! Many homes back directly up to the Guadalupe, creating a special kind of Hill Country lifestyle. However, even homes that don’t retain this special waterfront privilege still enjoy gorgeous properties: plenty of space between neighbors, custom landscaping, 1-10+ acre lots, and beautifully custom-built homes (starting in the mid-$300s and soaring up to $1 Million). Customized by expert builders, these homes convey a rustic sort of elegance that fits in perfectly with the Hill Country landscape. Additionally, if building your own dream home is on the horizon, ready lots range anywhere from $45k-$230k (on 1-11 acres). And, if you’d like to diversify your search, take a look at Riverforest: a smaller custom home community that also boasts private waterfront access (home prices range from $700k to over $1 Million).
Naturally, to protect the coveted natural features and tranquility of the River Chase community, the neighborhood was built well out of sight (and earshot) of the bustling I-35 corridor (approximately 10 miles west). With its strategic location, River Chase offers residents the peace and quiet of the countryside, along with easy access to local attractions and cultural hubs, including the beloved Gruene Historic District (home to the iconic country music venue Gruene Hall), downtown New Braunfels (10 miles), Austin (40 miles), San Antonio (30 miles), and Canyon Lake (17 miles). Each of these locales portrays a unique part of the Texas experience: from the sparkling Comal River to the Alamo. Additionally, other classic Hill Country towns like Fischer, Kendalia, Sisterdale, and Wimberley are easily accessible via a scenic country drive.
That being said...River Chase homeowners don’t have to venture outside the community itself to enjoy the finer things in life. The community boasts a wealth of resort-style amenities, including a fitness center, pool, a baseball field, basketball courts, a tennis court, and (finally) a 32-acre clubhouse complex featuring a notably cozy common room, complete with charming fireplace and exposed beam ceilings. Acting as a sort of River Chase community hub, this clubhouse is a popular place for the community clubs, associations, and committees that keep residents actively involved year-round (from 4-H to gardening and book clubs).
And, when it comes to schools, River Chase doesn’t disappoint! Students in this neighborhood attend Comal ISD schools, a district consistently known for being one of the best in the San Antonio metro area. In general, students in River Chase students are zoned to attend Hoffman Lane Elementary School, Church Hill Middle School, and Canyon High School.
For those who like to do their research, I would also recommend looking into similar communities like Riverforest, which also boasts private river access. Additionally, River Chase, Havenwood, Copper Ridge, and Vintage Oaks also boast luxurious custom-built homes, acreage homesites, custom-build options, and resort-style amenities. Nestled in the foothills of the Texas Hill Country and planted among the meandering trail of the Guadalupe River, River Chase truly has something for everyone.
