Holiday Edition 2014

Announcing Our Newest Neighborhood, Timber Ridge

It has been a busy and exciting summer at Vintage Oaks. The neighborhood released at the beginning of the summer, The Canyons, was very well received, and more than 77 homesites were sold in a few short months. Due to continued high demand for Hill County treed and view-oriented homesites, we have accelerated the release of another new neighborhood, Timber Ridge.

The first offering of 14 ridgeline homesites has just been released. Blanketed in mature trees with stunning Hill Country views, this dramatic neighborhood features high elevations, long views, privacy and greenbelt surround. All are also a short walk or bike ride to the pool, clubhouse, sporting fields and Memorial Park. Each homesite is one acre or more of spacious Texas Hill Country in the area’s fastest growing community, Vintage Oaks.

Timber Ridge features:

• 1+ acre heavily-wooded homesites
• Nestled in the back corner of the community for extra privacy
• 100-year-old oak trees
• Cul-de-sac homesites
• High elevations for breathtaking Hill Country views
 
Pre-development savings are available on all released homesites for a limited time only. Visit the Timber Ridge website for a map of these homesites and contact your sales consultant at (830) 885-3054 to schedule a tour.

 

Timber Ridge Memorial Park

If you’ve noticed construction activity up on the northwest edge of Silver Oaks by the heritage oak grove and wondered what was happening – we’re happy to announce progress is well underway on the new Timber Ridge Memorial Park. We’ve dedicated 23 acres for an open wildflower field, shaded seating areas amongst the oaks and a Remembrance Walk dedicated to the honorable residents, family and friends who have served our country.

According to a local arborist, there are oaks in this park that predate the Revolutionary War. What better location to be reminded of the importance of our history and the role our Veterans have played in it. We would like to offer the chance to all our property owners to dedicate a stone in the Remembrance Walk for a loved one that has served this country. The stones are 4”x6” tumbled Hill Country stone and will include the service members’ name, rank and division of the armed services in which they served. Click here to download the order form for detailed information and complete and return the form with a check for the engraving made payable to SouthStar Communities to the Vintage Oaks Sales Office by January 15.

We plan to dedicate the park early next year. We want to acknowledge and give our thanks to the many Veterans who have provided us with the freedom that we cherish, and honor them permanently in our community with this quiet and serene spot.

 

Property Owner Referral Program

More than one quarter of the Vintage Oaks family consists of friends and family of current property owners. We are proud to have a community who wants their friends to live here too. The year is coming to an end, so if you have friends, family or co-workers that would love Vintage Oaks, tell us and we’ll give you $500 when they close on their new homesite.

 Community Events

 

National Night Out

Neighbors came out on the evening of October 7 to meet and greet one another as well as local community service representatives serving the Comal County area. Local firefighters, EMT’s, the Sherriff and his officers and the 100 Club were all present to be introduced and answer questions from the Vintage Oaks neighbors. The kids kept busy with coloring books and had a chance to explore Station No. 5’s new decked out fire engine, inside and out, and were very intrigued with all the bells and whistles.

 

 

Halloween Trunk-or-Treat

Lots of ghosts, goblins, animal creatures, princesses and all kinds of other creative characters, kid and adult alike, came out to celebrate Trunk-or-Treat with neighbors on Halloween night at the Clubhouse. The kids went vehicle to vehicle for candy and other goodies, had a journey through the neighborhood on a hayride and many continued the evening trick-or-treating at houses in the neighborhood. Thanks to all those that participated and made this a great community event!

Thanksgiving Cooking Class

There was a nice crowd on Tuesday, November 18 at the Clubhouse for the Thanksgiving cooking class hosted by Chef Ed and Tina Carle. Guests were served an inviting plate of nontraditional Thanksgiving sides including Phyllo wrapped asparagus, green bean almandine and mushroom and leak bread pudding to name a few. Then, Chef Carle demonstrated how to prepare each dish for the upcoming holiday season. Guests enjoyed their favorite bottles of wine and fellowship with one another.

 

 

Community Holiday Party

What better way to draw 2014 to a close than at the Community Holiday Party at the Clubhouse on December 6? A little bit of the north was brought down to the Hill Country with a snow hill for the kids to sled down on the Clubhouse lawn. Of course there was a visit from Santa in his beautiful red suit and authentic white beard and all the children had the chance to tell him what they wished for this holiday season.
