Austin-area homebuilder Jimmy Jacobs Homes has unveiled a new model home in new community the Fairways at River Crossing, in North San Antonio.

During the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the developer presented a small, gated community of 45 home sites in Spring Branch. Prices for the garden homes start at $190 and are situated on comfortably sized home sites offering community-maintained landscaping, according to an official statement. Residents will be able to enjoy direct golf cart access to River Crossing’s award-winning, private 18-hole golf course.

In addition to the championship course, the community features a clubhouse with golf shop, luxurious locker rooms with fireplaces and TVs, and a private dining room. A new family activity center provides abundant entertainment for all ages, featuring a resort-style pool with grotto, an outdoor café, a fully equipped weight room and a fitness center that holds a variety of weekly classes for members, according to a press release.

The parent company, Jimmy Jacobs Custom Homes, builds custom homes in master-planned, waterfront and country club communities around New Braunfels and Austin, according to the San Antonio Business Journal.

Meanwhile, a new healthcare center that provides skilled nursing care and rehabilitation services to seniors has recently opened in Northeast San Antonio. The San Antonio Business Journal reported that the new facility, called TRISUN Care Center Lakeside, consists of 42,000 square feet of space and has been equipped with 120 skilled nursing and rehab beds. The staff reportedly will include 115 part-time and full-time employees.

The developers of the new facility are TRISUN and Suntex Development L.L.C., while San Antonio-based Metropolitan Contracting Co. and Austin-based DFD Architects were the design-build team for the new facility, according to the San Antonio publication.
