San Antonio Living: 5 Reasons You Will Love Moving to Stone Oak

Founded in 1718, Stone Oak is a charming historic suburb in San Antonio with a lot to offer. Despite being a populous town, it maintains a welcoming small-town feel and thriving cultural scene that will make you want to call it home. Stone Oak combines this charm perfectly with a booming economy and an exciting entertainment scene. Here are five reasons why buying a home in Stone Oak is a great idea.

The Local Lifestyle Is Suburban and Luxurious

Many decades ago, Stone Oak was a collection of private ranches. The community was built in the 1980s and has maintained much of its affluence and exclusivity. The architectural profile includes a mix of apartment complexes, private homes, shopping centers, and free-standing businesses. If you walk around the town, you will notice a certain upscale quality. The about 75,984 people who live here enjoy the laid-back suburban lifestyle with understated elegance and luxury. 

The Housing Market Is Rich and Varied

Like the town, many homes for sale in Stone Oak have a long history, with many built in the early 1990s. They have, however, since been refurbished and modernized to feature more contemporary designs and modern conveniences. Primarily set in gated communities and exclusive neighborhoods, many properties cost an average of $350,000. This amount, which is lower than the national average, is highly favorable considering many family homes feature three to four bedrooms.

The Community Is Well Managed

Stone Oak is a master planned community so much of the neighborhood’s affairs are regulated and managed by an association. More than 65 percent of the homes in the town are owner-occupied and members of the homeowner’s association – there is one in each community. The association runs the beautification, conservation, and maintenance activities in the community’s common areas. Consequently, residents enjoy well-maintained lawns, gardens, green spaces, parks, and more. 

The Neighborhoods Are Safe

As a mostly exclusive community, Stone Oak is highly private and safe. The streets are walkable and the crime rate is less than a tenth of the state average. Many of the neighborhoods are gated communities with 24-hour security. There is also a law enforcement office in town that keeps the community safe and homeowners up to date with the latest home security measures.

There Is a Lot to Do

Stone Oak is teeming with things to do and outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy this town. If you enjoy spelunking, the town is home to the largest caverns in Texas, the Natural Bridge Caverns. You can start your day with an underground tour before heading to San Antonio Missions National Historical Park and San Antonio Zoo, for more brushes with nature. Golfers will love Stone Oak Country Club and Canyon Springs Golf Club and hikers the 3.1-mile trail at Panther Springs Park.
