As the name implies, this eastern “balcony-like” newer neighborhood perches above the city often offering balcony views, sometimes even from the ground floor. While the lower parts of Balcones can be considered walking distance to the Jardin, this area is considered a bit like an affordable option to Ojo de Agua—walkability is traded for vistas. Watch for the public plaza and outdoor amphitheater bounded by palm trees and bougainvillea. Although rare values can be found in the mid-$300K range, homes here are mostly Luxury Collection offerings ranging up to about $1.5MM USD. Want to fly like an eagle?
