While neighboring San Antonio small towns like New Braunfels, Schertz, and Boerne hint at rural, countryside charm, no suburb experience can quite live up to full immersion in the Hill Country landscape. Cypress Springs is just such a neighborhood: located 30 minutes northwest of New Braunfels on TX-46 just outside the tiny town of Spring Branch, TX, Cypress Springs gives residents full access to the Hill Country’s wild landscape.

Founded in the mid-1800s by German settlers, Spring Branch has captured the hearts of its residents for years with gorgeous views, wide-open space, and an established population of about 250 residents, many of whom live in Cypress Springs. Residents love the town’s quaint, welcoming atmosphere, sparkling water features, and distinct luxury culture.

Cypress Springs, a sprawling 2700 acre subdivision of single family homes, is made up of just under 500 properties on multiple acreage home sites. A wealth of mature oak trees spread across this beautiful Texas Hill Country development, creating a welcome canopy from the Texas heat. Amenities include a gated private six-acre park on the river, Guadalupe River waterfront access, and far more. Besides incredible amenities within, Cypress Springs offers residents easy access to the many surrounding state parks and natural areas, including Guadalupe River State Park, Honey Creek State Natural Area, and Pedernales Falls State Park, all within a few hours’ drive.

Adding to the appeal of the area is the excellent school system, Comal Independent School District. Serving grades pre-k through 12th grade, the district has a reputation for excellence, showing above-average graduation rates and high proficiency in math and reading skills. Students are zoned to Arlon Seay Elementary, Spring Branch Middle School, and Smithson Valley High School.

Cypress Springs is perhaps best known for its multi-acre properties that allow residents to enjoy the Hill Country fully. These homes, which range in price from the mid-$300,000s to upper $400,000s, allow for a coveted sense of privacy. If you’re interested in building your dream home in this gorgeous area, land plots generally begin in the $100,000s.
