January 6, 2021 – SCHERTZ, Texas Freehold Communities®, developer of Homestead in Schertz, Texas just outside of San Antonio, has announced that a new section of the masterplanned community will open early this year, featuring residential collections on 55’ and 65’ homesites by some of the region’s most respected builders.

A total of 119 homesites will surround a prime location at Homestead Commons, the recent winner of the Summit Award for Best Amenity by the San Antonio Builder’s Association. Chesmar Homes, one of leading local homebuilders in the region, will make its debut at Homestead, joining Perry Homes and CastleRock Communities in the new residential section. Chesmar and Perry will feature homes on the 65’ lots and CastleRock will build on the 55’ lots.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Chesmar Homes to Homestead, who along with Perry Homes and CastleRock Communities, will offer a variety of floorplan and design options to suit a variety of lifestyle needs,” said Matt D. Matthews, Texas Division President for Freehold Communities. “A premium location in Schertz on the I-35 corridor between San Antonio and New Braunfels, in close proximity to Randolph Air Force Base, has allowed Homestead to emerge as one of the most desirable communities in this market.”

It features a state-of-the-art fitness center with the latest equipment, resort-style pool and splash pad, and an outdoor pavilion with grills and a playground for kids.
