If you had been in San Antonio within the ’80s and ’90s, you most likely heard a radio commercial from developer G.G. Gale asking listeners to “come to Timberwood Park, the place there’s extra treetops than rooftops.” A couple of many years later, my spouse and I did simply that.
We each grew up in North Central San Antonio and had mates or household who lived in Timberwood Park. In reality, my spouse lived a part of her childhood within the neighborhood. I grew up within the adjoining Stone Oak space after which later additional north simply six minutes from our present dwelling. So Timberwood Park had at all times been thought of a part of our dwelling.
The story of how we obtained right here is certainly not one thing we ever pictured. My spouse and I met in San Antonio and pursued increased schooling in Houston. After regulation college, I began my very own apply in Houston, however we deliberate to “sometime” return to San Antonio to flee the quick tempo of life in Houston.
We lastly moved again to San Antonio in 2019 to a rental home on the Northeast Side. Once the pandemic hit, we determined to search for a home to purchase. At the time the market was starting to be extraordinarily overvalued, and we didn’t like every of the houses we had been discovering in our value vary. My father-in-law jokingly requested us, “Why don’t you simply construct a home, then?” I had constructed houses previous to practising regulation, so we figured why not go for it.
When we started to search for land, we immediately targeted our efforts on a well-known space of city: Timberwood Park. All heaps had been no less than half an acre, so there was loads of privateness and room to unfold out. Now having completed our home and being on this neighborhood, we actually do love the place we stay.
The great thing about Timberwood Park is in its proximity and distance from San Antonio. The neighborhood is a 10-minute drive north of the Blanco Road and Loop 1604 North intersection and simply north of the Stone Oak space. Our neighborhood is shut sufficient to get pleasure from all North Central San Antonio has to supply however far sufficient away to be amid the rolling hills of the Texas Hill Country.
My regulation apply, The Richter Law Firm, is positioned within the adjoining Stone Oak space, and my spouse’s on-line clothes boutique, Linen and Thread Boutique, lately opened a storefront within the Elysia Collective Company at Lockhill Selma and Wurzbach Road, so Timberwood Park’s location permits us to be near our work.
Some of one of the best breakfast tacos available might be discovered proper on the entrance to Timberwood Park at Taqueria Aguascalientes. Our go-to dinner spot is Chama Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse for at all times superb meals and impeccable service. If you go, positively ask for Aaron, their wine sommelier, to level you in the suitable course on their spectacular wine listing. We have discovered a few of our favourite wines due to Aaron.
As wine individuals, we’ve been excited to see a number of wine bars open up close to us. Cibolo Creek Vineyards, simply north of us in Bulverde, has an incredible choice of wines, stylish décor and two resident alpacas. Texas Winers focuses on wines vinted proper right here within the state of Texas. One of our favourite perks is their “construct your personal charcuterie board,” which helps you to choose from an in depth listing of choices primarily based in your style.
Since the pandemic, following the tendencies now we have seen all throughout our metropolis, there was important new building in our neighborhood, and the entire once-empty heaps are actually not empty. We rely ourselves lucky to have been capable of safe our piece of what we imagine is one of the best a part of Texas to develop our companies and our household.
