San Antonio Neighborhoods, Old and New - Part 8: Sonoma Ranch

Continuing my journey through some of San Antonio's interesting neighborhoods, today we'll explore Sonoma Ranch,  a neighborhood in picturesque Helotes, and one of the newer master planned communities in the San Antonio area.  Sonoma Ranch is located just outside Loop 1604 on Kyle Seale Blvd., and was developed in 2000 on the site of the Kyle Seale Ranch.  The homes in this gated community are set upon normal residential lots to lots of one to three acres which are considered estate homes. Prices range from the entry level homes in the high $100's to Estate homes over $700,000.  Sonoma Ranch also boasts wonderful community amenities, including three swimming pools, a clubhouse, playgrounds, and tennis and basketball courts.    

Location, Location, Location....
Sonoma Ranch is convenient to major highways, Loop 1604 and IH 10, as well as the major shopping areas at The Rim and La Cantera Mall.  The local university, The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) is about three miles away.  The Six Flags Fiesta Texas theme park is about five miles away, and Sea World San Antonio is about twelve miles away. 

The nearby town of Helotes, known as a friendly place where the Texas Hill Country begins, was originally a small stagecoach stop between San Antonio and Bandera. Today, the community, nestled within the scenic hills, is quiet and fun-filled, a place where small town tranquility and family-oriented activities are enjoyed throughout the year.

One local business, Floore Country Store, gained fame as the place where country-western singer and songwriter Willie Nelson got his start, and where he occasionally returns to perform.

Sonoma Ranch real estate...
It's been a busy year in Sonoma Ranch so far.  There are 70 homes on the market currently, ranging from $179,900 to $782,500.  There are 15 homes under contract, and thus far in 2009 there have been 105 homes sold in the community.  Those sold homes ranged from $150,000 to $700,000.  To find out more specifics about homes available in the area, you can contact me
