Stone Oak is a master planned community on San Antonio’s far northside outside of Loop 1604 and west of 281. It runs through two zip codes, 78258 and 78260, and is one of the most popular areas to live in San Antonio. The original master plan for Stone Oak was filed in 1985 and over the years it has grown into an incredible diversity of restaurants, shops, and businesses sprinkled throughout the many neighborhoods that comprise Stone Oak. In 2012, it was estimated that the population of Stone Oak was 75,984, a growth of over 10,000 people since the 2010 Census (and a growth of over 55,000 since 2000).
Stone Oak’s neighborhoods offer a mix of styles and prices, with many communities offering gated security and in some cases guard gates. One of the best parts of the master planned community is the care the developers took to provide wide green medians with flowers, grass, and trees, something often lacking in large scale housing developments. These medians are meticulously cared for throughout the year thanks to the dues paid by residents who live in the area.
