With San Antonio’s home sales increasing more than ten percent since 2016, outlying areas, such as Schertz/Cibolo, are quickly growing and becoming a highly desirable home destination. Appealing to young families and professionals as well as seasoned homebuyers, Schertz/Cibolo provides small town charm, a strong sense of community, and the convenience and amenities of a nearby major metropolitan community.
With several new area residential developments in the works, Homestead, a 522-acre Freehold Communities master planned community, is bringing a unique, healthy living concept to Schertz/Cibolo. Three homebuilders were recently announced for phase one – Scott Felder Homes, Pulte Homes and CastleRock Communities. Model homes are projected to open spring 2017.
Homestead is located about two miles southwest of New Braunfels and 20 minutes northeast of San Antonio. Home prices start in the $200s.
A Focus on Fitness
Homestead is created with Freehold’s signature Vital Communities™ approach, and is designed to encourage healthy living, fitness and neighborhood engagement. Homestead’s amenities will include:
• More than 88 acres of open space, including an activity center with open air pavilion, grill stations, sports courts, natural playscape for kids and an adjacent pet park.
• Nearly five miles of hiking and jogging trails, ponds and parks.
• 14-acre City of Schertz park with direct access from community
• State-of-the-art fitness center with innovative equipment offering onsite fitness classes and a resort-style pool with kids’ splash pad.
• Full-time, dedicated lifestyle director who will plan ongoing community social events.
An uncommon approach to developing communities, the Vital Communities™ concept was developed through consumer research of distinctive needs, trends and preferences in local markets and careful selection of creative builders who share the Freehold philosophy of unique home designs.
“Homestead’s architectural style is centered on family, community and a respect for the land,” said Suzanne Maddalon, vice president of marketing for Freehold Communities. “Homestead boasts one of the highest elevations in Guadalupe County and with our builder teams now established, we plan to embrace Vital Communities™ principles with architectural cues from farms and homesteads of a much simpler time.”
What the Research Said
With the average American seeking to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle, homebuyers across various generations are beginning to search for communities in which recreational activities are offered as well as a community to share them with. That revelation became the foundation for Freehold’s Vital Communities™ across the U.S.
Homestead embodies that lifestyle in a handful of ways beginning with a location that includes sprawling views accompanied by a long list of amenities and recreational opportunities that provide residents with a wide selection of their favorite fitness activities.
These amenities piggyback on Freehold’s ability to hone in on what is important to people throughout the home buying process and allows the art of healthy living to be an everyday routine. Additionally, Homestead’s community focuses on bridging the gap between neighbor and community, one healthy step at a time.
