Welcome to South River
Luxury waterfront homes in a gated community
Cocooned in the heart of Texas Hill Country, south of Wimberley, and overlooking the stunning Blanco river lies this small, affluent community. It’s a cozy setting with breathtaking waterfront views, and it’s just a stone's throw away from the shopping, dining, and outdoor attractions of Wimberley.
South River is a small subdivision in a quaint setting with a luxurious yet laid-back charm. It’s an ideal place to build a custom home since resales are limited — most residents are longtime homeowners who choose to stay put in the tranquility of their familiar neighborhood.
A leisurely drive through this gated community reveals a diverse array of architectural choices with custom finishes. You’ll find everything from Mediterranean-style homes with immaculate lawns and lush backyards to classic adobe ranches and an abundance of riverfront lots strewn with vintage oaks.
