Looking for a high end home?
I went to the San Antonio Parade of Homes over at The Palacios at Cibolo Canyons this weekend to take a look at the homes on show this year (I missed the REALTOR® Day as I was busy working on a contract). Of course, I wanted to show some pictures here and discuss specifics, but they have a “no camera” policy, so I was unable to bring back much more than some mental images.
Overall, I liked the homes. I’m not sure if I liked them for the price though ($1.2 million and up). Having lived in Los Angeles for eight years, I’m used to high end prices, but with so much affordable housing here in San Antonio, I felt that these were a little too pricey without the justifications that an area like Los Angeles would have. Having said that, the homes were all designed with a “green” theme in mind, which of course, tends to cost more to produce. My favorite? The Summit Built Homes house at 24026 Gran Palacio.
The community at Cibolo Canyons isn’t just for millionaires though. Some of the communities in the area have more reasonably priced homes in the $200s and $300s. With Cibolo Canyons containing an amenity center that hosts a lazy river, pool, clubhouse, gym, and home to the JW Marriot San Antonio Hill Country Resort and Spa, its easy to see why Cibolo Canyons’ tagline is “Its all here in Cibolo Canyons.”
