What are the Applewood Community Amenities?

There are lots of things to compare within communities when deciding where to live in San Antonio. From physical location, to school ratings, to community amenities, let’s take a look at some specifics about the Applewood community amenities.

Affordable home selection with upgrades

D.R. Horton is known as the largest homebuilder in America. They specialize in building a large amount of homes every year (aka, a production builder). The reason this makes a difference to you, is because this is what makes their homes more affordable.

Now, because these are tract-style, inventory homes, there are very few options that you can select for the home. But, that is another reason why they are more affordable.

They are able to build homes with modern floorplans, and with some upgraded features, at competitive prices. They also offer some pretty incredible incentives for buying their homes, which we will talk about a little further down in this post.

Home Features in the Applewood Community

Here are some of the standard features of the homes in the Applewood community:

  • Granite countertops in the kitchen & bathrooms – Although granite is becoming more & more common in new homes in San Antonio, it is not always standard. In Applewood, however, granite countertops are a standard feature.
  • Stainless steel kitchen appliances – No outdated, white appliances for these homes. Of course the models will vary, but you can expect stainless steel stove/oven, dishwasher & microwave (if included).
  • Two Car Garage – Another feature that is not a given in brand new homes. Some new homes that are in the more affordable price ranges are built with a one car, or even no garages to save on build costs (and affordability).
  • Landscaped front yard & irrigation system – Not only good for your curb appeal, but irrigation really helps to maintain your greenery through the hot summer months.
  • Smart Home System – Connect key security components of your home with an app on your phone. A great feature to have in this digital age!
  • Brick & stone front elevation – Another value booster, and it adds visual appeal to the neighborhood. It definitely makes a difference in the overall appearance of the home and the community.

Convenient & accessible location

Of course, location plays a huge role in whether a community is the right fit for you! Considering work commutes, traffic, driving distance for necessities and entertainment can quickly eliminate an area from your options. The Applewood community has easy access to Loop 1604 and Hwy 90, which makes it convenient for your work commute, especially if you’re PCSing to Lackland AFB.

This location is also super close to grocery shopping (H-E-B is a must!), dining, and entertainment. Sea World, Six Flags, and tons of other entertainment options are within 15-25 minutes. Plus, you have access straight into downtown, in case you want to see all the most popular San Antonio attractions (The Alamo, Riverwalk, Fiesta, Pearl & tons more).

Applewood Community Amenities & Lifestyle

The Applewood community has been designed to foster a strong sense of community among families that find their homes here. These are a few of the neighborhood amenities that the residents of Applewood enjoy:

  • Resort-style pool with lounge area – Dive into relaxation at the sparkling pool to better enjoy these hot Texas summers. Lounge around, soak up the sun, and unwind in this tranquil oasis.
  • Playscape – Let the kids’ imaginations run wild in the fun-filled playground area. It’s the perfect spot for laughter and adventure!
  • Picnic area – Enjoy outdoor dining with family and friends in the picnic area. Relax, dine, and create memories year-round.
  • Ping Pong tables & Cornhole lawn – Get your game on with some recreational amenities! Challenge your family members, or even your neighbors to ping pong or cornhole for some friendly competition and endless fun!
