Looking for waterfront property in the Texas Hill Country? Check out Mystic Shores, a luxury community with stunning views and amenities.
When the glory of the Hill Country’s rugged landscape meets the shorelines of its signature waterways, “luxury real estate” gains a whole new meeting.
Enter, Mystic Shores, an incredibly diverse waterfront community perched right next to Canyon Lake and the sparkling Guadalupe River. Featuring over two thousand home sites spread out over 7,000 acres, this luxury Hill Country neighborhood stands out among the rest.
And in case you weren’t already convinced, we’ve spelled it out for you: here are 9 big reasons why we love Mystic Shores!
1. A Prime Waterfront Location
Perfectly positioned between the mouth of the Guadalupe River and the north shore of Canyon Lake, Mystic Shores is the ideal Hill Country neighborhood for anyone bent on making a home in the most idyllic part of the Hill Country. Though the neighborhood is home to around 2,200 home sites, the community itself boasts over 7,000 acres of land...meaning residents get that “wide open space” feel that makes the countryside so appealing in the first place. Take a meandering drive into the neighborhood and see stunning homes nestled amidst limestone bluffs, outstretched oaks, and sparkling lake views.
2. Beautiful Lots Available for New Builds
Looking to build your dream home? Though Mystic Shores is a well-established community, plenty of stunning empty lots are still available for new builds. Lots start in the $20k range and skyrocket up to over $1 Million (for high-acreage, waterfront lots). View architectural restrictions here!
3. A Variety of Stunning Homes
With no shortage of homes for sale, Mystic Shores is divided into two separate gated communities, as well as several non-gated subdivisions. Property types vary between waterfront lots (on both the Guadalupe River and Canyon Lake), high-acreage lots, and general home sales. Due to this wide range of both lot type and home styles and designs, the Mystic Shores community is able to cater to a variety of budgets. Homes start around $250k all the way up to well over a $1 million.
4. A Coveted Hill Country Location
Located just outside the coveted small town of Spring Branch, TX, Mystic Shores is strategically located on Highway 306, six miles east of Highway 281 and 25 miles west of IH35. This means that San Antonio (45 miles), New Braunfels (30 miles), San Marcos (28 miles), and Austin (51 miles) are all within a relatively close distance. On the other hand, historic Hill Country towns like Fredericksburg, Blanco, Johnson City, Boerne, and Luckenbach are also easily accessible via a scenic drive.

5. Hill Country Views Galore
Naturally, Mystic Shores’ stunning Hill Country location comes with spectacular views. From brilliant sunrise to hazy sunset (not to mention those big, bright Texas stars), residents of Mystic Shores enjoy the full spectrum of Hill Country views.
6. A Fabulous Array of Amenities
Though many rural Hill Country neighborhoods leave their included amenities to a minimum (because who really needs extras when you’re living in the Hill Country), Mystic Shores goes above and beyond in this department. Boasting a community center, multiple swimming pools, walking trails, sports courts, and multiple community parks (not to mention an elementary school and grocery store on site), this neighborhood takes “resort-style amenities” to a whole new level.
7. Acreage Homesites Available
For those looking to own their own substantial piece of the Texas Hill Country, Mystic Shores is happy to offer home sites that redefine the word “generous.” While many standard lots sit on at least two acres, many stretch all the way up to twenty. On some of these larger properties, residents can see cattle and horses grazing.
