Though most people today live in big cities and suburbs, it doesn’t mean that their love of nature and the rural countryside has been forgotten. A testament to this would be the ranch communities of Hill Country that are specifically designed for those who want to go back to the ranch-style living of the olden days. With a lot of hiking trails, recreational areas, equestrian centers and clubhouses, these communities speak of the good life, so why not build your perfect home there?
For most people who were born and raised in the cities surrounding Hill Country, like San Antonio and Austin, moving to a rural community might seem to be a very big step. Some might even see it as a step that is just too big to take. But if you’re spending a lot of money going on vacations to get in touch with your outdoor-living side, or if you regularly go to the country to take nature hikes, these ranch communities might be good for you. Here are some of the differences of rural and city living:
If you’re living in one of the big cities, chances are you’re either renting an apartment, or you own a condominium or a townhouse. If you’re the American dream kind of person, you might even be living in the suburbs with the green lawn and the white picket fence. In Hill Country though, you are given the chance to build your own home in a 2000-acre community.
City dwellers usually have access to all sorts of transportation to get to wherever it is they’re going. However, to those who live in ranch communities, there is hardly ever any reason to go out. There are equestrian centers and hiking trails right outside your door, and there are buses if ever you want to go into the city.
Again, city dwellers have a lot of options when it comes to eating out. Living in ranches for sale in Texas, on the other hand, would mean more options when it comes to fresh food. There is also the option of growing fruits and vegetables or breeding poultry and livestock.
