Tranquility abounds at Hill Country Retreat, a 55+ community in the Texas Hill Country. Situated in historic San Antonio, this active adult community by Del Webb and Village Builders offers residents picturesque views of cascading waterfalls, towering oak trees, and meandering wildlife. Residents can savor all of the neighborhood’s natural beauty, whether they stroll along the community’s miles of walking trails or they relax on the front porch of their luxuriously appointed home.
Started in 2006 by Del Webb, the age-restricted community in Texas will contain more than 2,000 homes upon completion. With several different floor plans and features, active adult homebuyers are sure to find a design, size, and price to meet their exact needs. Del Webb homes range in size from 1,109 to 2,691 square feet, offering active adults flowing floor plans that make entertaining a breeze.
When Village Builders bought 100 lots in the community in 2013, it expanded the offerings to include six additional floor plans that range in size from 2,150 to 2,838 square feet. These energy-efficient homes, which are available on a resale-only basis, include stunning features such as 10-foot ceilings and crown molding throughout. While most residences are single-story ranch homes, buyers can choose a floor plan that includes an optional second-floor loft.
Active adults find it easy and enjoyable to pursue all their favorite pastimes at Hill Country Retreat. A 28,000-square-foot clubhouse, aptly named The Resort, stands out as the centerpiece of this age-restricted community. Here, neighbors can gather in the ballroom for parties and special events, or meet with friends for an evening of fun and socializing in the billiards room. They can also join a book club, play Bridge, or take a pottery class with neighbors who are sure to become good friends. An on-site activities director keeps the social calendar full, from potluck dinners to Wednesday-night movies.
It’s easy to maintain an active lifestyle at this age-restricted community. The Resort boasts a state-of-the-art fitness center complete with an aerobics studio and an indoor pool that offers water aerobics, lap lanes, and free swim. After a workout in the water, residents can walk a lap around the indoor walking track located on the second level.
Outdoor enthusiasts appreciate the many resort-style amenities this age-restricted community offers. Homeowners can get some exercise on the tennis courts or bocce courts, swim some laps in the outdoor pool, or gather some friends for a day of fishing or boating.

There’s much for active adults to savor at Hill Country Retreat. From resort-style amenities, clubs, and classes, to luxuriously appointed homes in a range of sizes and styles, this 55+ community is a gem in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.
