Looking for a San Antonio suburb that also feels like a Hill Country getaway? Seven Hills Ranch might just be the perfect place for you to combine the tranquility and privacy of the countryside without sacrificing the conveniences of easy city access. Though less than a ten-minute drive north of Garden Ridge’s town center (a charming collection of city hall, churches, schools, and a few local businesses), Seven Hills Ranch’s location off of Natural Bridge Caverns Rd allows residents scenic views of the adjacent wildlife and nature preserve.
Travel seven miles south, however, and the bustling I-35 corridor offers a glittering array of the area’s finest shopping and entertainment, from movie theaters to sprawling shopping centers. Bracken Village boasts a charming collection of boutiques, Rolling Oaks Mall contains many popular name brands, and The Forum at Olympia Parkway is home to one of the largest shopping centers in Texas (from children’s apparel and department stores to electronics, jewelry, haircuts, and health).
Parents in Seven Hills Ranch can rest easy knowing their children are zoned to the highly acclaimed Comal ISD, a district that serves much of the surrounding Hill Country. Schools like Garden Ridge Elementary, Canyon Middle School, and Canyon High School have been recognized by the Texas Education Agency as displaying exemplary levels of academic achievement.
A master-planned community at its finest, Seven Hills Ranch is run by a well-established POA and offers the peace of mind delivered by a gated entrance. Though prices do indeed range anywhere from $355,000 to $980,000, the median price hovers around $518,750 and average square footage rests around 3,771. Given its outlying location, multi-acreage properties are available in abundance, boasting mature trees and incredible Hill Country views (including local wildlife sightings!).
