New Homes in Medina County, TX from Tilson Custom Home Builders

Medina County

The southwestern Medina County is less than an hour away from San Antonio, where many of its 50,000 residents commute for work and education. The county is one of the best in the state for deer hunting, and has ample opportunity for other outdoor recreation at Medina Lake, Paradise Canyon, and Hill Country State Natural Area. The city of Hondo at its center has a flight school, and holds a wild game festival in January. Castroville is a popular location for commuters; here you can find the Castroville Regional Park, the Landmark Inn historic site, and the St Louis Day celebration in August.
