In a sleepy little Texas town north of San Antonio, you'll find lakeside living without all the bothersome noise and intrusion by tourists and summer vacationers. Treasure Island located in McQueeney, Texas is a community of lakefront homes that began in the 1950s. The lots were sold to retirees and those wanting a second home, presumably for summer vacations and holiday getaways. With a population of around 600, residents enjoy mature oak, cedar, and mesquite trees hanging over country-lane-style streets. There are no curbs separating yards from pavement, but there are many bridges to walk over canals that run up behind homes for back door parking of speedboats, pontoons, and jet skis. The lake itself, Lake McQueeney, is actually part of the Guadalupe River.
There's not a whole lot going on in McQueeney, itself, but both New Braunfels and Seguin are only minutes away for shopping and nightlife activities.
If you'd like to own a home on this coveted bit of real estate, it will cost a pretty penny as the smallest single story homes begin pricing around $200K and go up into the millions for the more elaborate abodes.
As for Treasure Island, it remains just that in the middle of McQueeney, Texas.
