Why are so many residents drawn to Garden Ridge, TX? Drive down the ambling streets and cul-de-sacs of this Hill Country small town, and it’s easy to see why everyone from retirees to military families to move-up buyers are flocking to this real estate hub off the northern cusp of San Antonio city limits. Noted as one of the safest communities in the area (a factor only heightened by Trophy Oaks’ gated entrance), Garden Ridge is distinctly tranquil and family-friendly, boasting a sense of close-knit friends and neighbors. With nearly 4,000 residents, this small town is small (without being too small) and off-the-beaten-path (without losing convenience).
Located in the northeast corner of Garden Ridge, Trophy Oaks is perched just off FM 3009, less than a 10 minute drive away from Interstate 35. Given that Trophy Oaks homes are only a short drive to Loop 1604, the shopping, dining, and recreation of North East San Antonio (The Forum at Olympia Parkway, Bracken Village, and Rolling Oaks Mall) are close at hand, and military families enjoy a relatively short commute to Randolph Air Force Base (less than 30 minutes). Additionally, both New Braunfels’ German charm (and sparkling rivers) and San Antonio’s urban buzz are each less than half an hour down the road in either direction.
Just what types of homes line the streets of Trophy Oaks? Set at a median price in the mid-$500s, this community offers a variety of home styles and prices, ranging anywhere from $470,000 to over $800K. Though these homes span the gamut in terms of style and build (dating back to 1998 through present-day), the HOA’s Architectural Control Committee ensures that each fits together into a well-designed, aesthetically-pleasing whole. Many homes enjoy generous homesites, custom pools, open floor plans, luxurious fireplaces, and unique design features. (Homebuyers interested in exploring additional options in the area might check out other popular subdivisions like Georg Ranch, Wild Wind, Seven Hills Ranch, Forest Waters, and Enclave of Garden Ridge)
Besides gorgeous real estate offerings and a prime location, Trophy Oaks also lies within the coveted Comal Independent School District. With students attending highly acclaimed area schools (Garden Ridge Elementary, Canyon Middle School, and Canyon High School), residents of this neighborhood can rest easy knowing their children are receiving a quality education rated as “exemplary” by the Texas Education Agency.
Located just south of an expansive Hill Country green space, Trophy Oaks residents enjoy the peace and quiet of the Hill Country. This philosophy also trickles into the direct neighborhood, with many residents placing high emphasis on curb appeal and beautifully manicured lawns. Additionally, many neighbors participate in the “adopt-a-cul-de-sac” program, beautifying the common areas of the neighborhood with unique displays of flowers, trees, and hedges (one even outlining the shape of Texas!).
