The current tenants of this home have been wonderful, but they need to move to the northwest part of San Antonio, after commuting to work there for several months. At this time of the year, builders are offering great incentives to get their inventory off the books. So the tenants are buying a new home and moving out a few months early, and this home needs to be leased right away. It will be clean and ready for new residents on January 3. Well-behaved pets would be considered. Escondido Creek is located in the town of Converse, on the northeast side of San Antonio. It is in convenient driving distance of both Randolph Air Force Base and Fort Sam Houston. It's in the Judson school district. The neighborhood has a community swimming pool and a sports court for the use of the home owners.

I had the opportunity to play the Woodlake golf club the other day; and I will tell you, it was a pleasure!   Home of Ben Crenshaw's 1st PGA Tour Victory   This course was built in the early '70's and the design is fantastic.  Hilly terrains, mulitple water hazards and all the greens are elevated.  It's a true golfer's challenge at a reasonable price.  I will definitely add this to one of my regular courses in rotation.  Not the longest course, about 6,600 yards from the tips, but you will work for par!   Very nice homes surround this course and the prices and dynamics vary:  you can have your choice of a gated community, or not, all with short access to Randolph AFB, and Fort Sam Houston.  25 Active - Residential Single Statistics   High Low Average Median List Price $279,000 $103,000 ...
