Alamo Heights Real Estate
Alamo Heights has long been one of the most popular cities in the Greater San Antonio area because of its proximity to downtown and the gracious beauty of its tree-lined neighborhoods. Broadway runs from the middle of downtown straight up through Alamo Heights and is bustling with some of the most famous museums, restaurants, churches and shops in the San Antonio area, including the Quarry. The area was first established in the 1800s by two of the most famous San Antonioans — Charles Anderson and George Washington Brackenridge. In fact, Anderson originally called his 1400 acre horse ranch here ‘Alamo Heights’ and his historic headquarters still exists as a private club – The Argyle. Covering 2.1 square miles and served by its own police and fire departments, the city is home to about 7,800 residents with an average age of 43 with an average annual income of $110,000, according to DataUSA. It does cost more to live in this area of rich history and convenience, however, as the median home price is about double that of the median home price in the region — at $513,000! Unlike the sleepier but even pricier neighbors of Terrell Hills and Olmos Park, Alamo Heights hosts more commerce and is home to the acclaimed Alamo Heights High School that also serves most of the other two neighbor cities. Resale here is one of the most stable in South Texas. Come visit, be charmed and you’ll want to stay.
