Considering New Braunfels is famous for its aquaculture (boasting two of the best rivers in Texas), it’s no wonder why folks are flocking to riverfront neighborhoods! If you’re moving to New Braunfels and want to be close to the sparkling Comal or the splashy Guadalupe, these 5 neighborhoods need to be on your radar.
Landa Park Highlands is one of the central neighborhoods in New Braunfels that has easy access to Landa Park and the park’s golf course. Don’t worry about ever packing up the car to head to the water because the Comal River is a flip-flop-clacking stroll away from every front door. Schlitterbahn Waterpark is nearby for the kids to enjoy in the summer, and New Braunfels High School is within walking distance as well. Landa Park Highlands is an amazing neighborhood for buyers who want to live in a slice of town history and have the convenience of central living.
2. River Chase
River Chase is a private community perfect for home buyers who want to invest in their neighborhood. Homes back up right to the Guadalupe River, creating a sense of adventure and leisure. Living in River Chase means enjoying plenty of fantastic amenities, such as a clubhouse, fitness center, pool, sports courts and fields, butterfly garden, leisure pond, and walking trails. Community members also receive private access to the river for floating, kayaking, or swimming.
A prime example, 223 Longwood offers a split bedroom floorplan in River Chase that comes with granite countertops, custom cabinets, game room, and a walk-in wine grotto.
Another fantastic neighborhood in the center of town is Oakwood Estates. On those hot summer days, you can walk from your front porch to the banks of the Comal River in only a couple of minutes. Located right next to one of the more popular launch points for floating the river, Oakwood is a great place for kids to grow up and fall in love with the river, and did we mention that it is also right next to New Braunfels High School? Highway 337 is next to the neighborhood for easy commuting, making this community ideal for families.
416 Elmwood Drive was built just above Landa Park and has spacious rooms perfect for entertaining. The kitchen features custom cabinets, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances, and the upstairs has a secondary living room with plenty of space to relax.
4. Long Creek
The south side of New Braunfels, on the other side of Interstate 35, has loads of up-and-coming communities. The Long Creek neighborhood is along the Guadalupe River just after Lake Dunlap and before Lake McQueeney. For the golfers who need to live near the links, this is the place for you. The Bandit Golf Club is a part of the neighborhood and ready for those daily players to take tee time. What could be better than living on the river and playing golf every day?
Another great spot in the southeast of town is the neighborhood of Southbank. This community features amenities that will have any home buyer swooning for that waterfront property. Enjoy a variety of parks and playgrounds within walking distance of each house and a community clubhouse perfect for meeting up with neighbors. The Guadalupe River runs along Southbank and turns into Lake Dunlap, which is a great spot for people who want to take the boat out on the weekends. Homes in this neighborhood have a wide range of price and personality - there is something for everyone in Southbank!
Located at 2349 Waterford Grace, this stunning home has the views and privacy of any home buyer’s dreams. The floor plan design caters to both entertaining and family living, and the private boat dock and covered lift on Lake Dunlap make this a hard home to overlook.
