It’s no secret the Texas Hill Country is one of the most scenic places in the United States. The gorgeous rolling terrain, punctuated by towering cypress trees, crystal clear rivers and blooming wildflowers – it’s no wonder why this part of the country is a real estate hotbed.
Nestled in its heart an easy 20-minute drive outside of San Antonio is Cordillera Ranch, a luxury gated community. It’s also one of the Lone Star State’s most successful master planned communities, boasting over $100 million in real estate activity each of the last two years.
The houses at Cordillera Ranch are next-level, with architecture ranging from Tuscan villas and Old-World Mediterranean to traditional Texas Hill Country and transitional contemporary. The million-dollar abodes, juxtaposed with the spectacular natural beauty and extraordinary views for miles (the community is an astounding 8,700 acres), takes visitors’ breath away.
Much more than beautiful homes, the community also features The Clubs of Cordillera Ranch. These seven resort-style clubs are highlighted by the centerpiece of the community: a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course that has consistently been ranked as the #1 golf course in the Texas Hill Country by Dallas Morning News. But it doesn’t stop with the finest bent grass greens in Texas, The Clubs of Cordillera Ranch also includes a River Club (on the Guadalupe River), a Rod and Gun Club (tune up on its 10-station sporting clays course), a Spa and Fitness Club, Swim and Tennis Club, Equestrian Club (including club horses, stables and miles of trails), and Social Club – all under one membership.
Here are a few reasons why you should live the Cordillera Ranch lifestyle today.
Cordillera Ranch is a unique community in that the broad array of amenities appeal to multiple generations and offer lifestyle options for all manner of buyers. Boerne Independent School District, recognized among the state’s top education systems, makes it an ideal place to raise a family. Cordillera Ranch also offers activities such as kids’ camp, summer camps, golf schools, and a whole range of outdoor activities like kayaking, biking and hiking.
Cordillera Ranch is also perfect for Baby Boomers and retirees, many of whom choose the community to be closer to their children and grandchildren, or to have the ultimate amenities that beckon their children and grandchildren to visit them at Cordillera Ranch more often. Retirees can build their dream home while enjoying golf, tennis, sporting clays, equestrian, kayaking, fishing, spa services and fitness classes.
It’s rare to find a community that suits a multitude of generations so well. Size up, downsize, right-size, build a dream home or buy a lot down the street for the family – the options are endless at Cordillera Ranch. Another bonus: the community boasts some of the lowest property tax rates in the state.
Luxury Lot and Real Estate Options
Cordillera Ranch features lots ranging from one quarter acre to more than 10+ acres, with options like golf course frontage, Guadalupe River front, wooded and hilltop view properties.
To preserve its natural state, approximately 80% of the development will remain in its native Hill Country vegetation. Aside from the beauty and aesthetic benefits, the preservation of the native landscape also benefits local wildlife along with water conservation.
As evidenced by the below map, the property is divided into three general subdivisions: The Clubs Village, which is within walking distance of the Cordillera Ranch clubhouse; The Ranch; and the community’s newest neighborhood, The Springs of Cordillera Ranch.
The Springs of Cordillera Ranch offers ¾ to three-plus-acre sites with long-distance Hill Country views, looping walking trail system, Sports Park featuring fields and courts, creekside nature preserve and easy access to the new Panther Creek park.
The community has partnered with the top builders in the San Antonio region to make dream homes a reality. They include Authentic Custom Homes, Christofolis Custom Homes, Garner Homes and Stadler Custom Homes. These preferred builders exhibit the highest quality craftsmanship and have earned the unwavering trust of their clients. Combined with Pasadera Builders, the exclusive builder of the Di Lusso Villas, Cordillera Ranch has the finest selection of builders in the area.
Recently, actress Cheryl Ladd of “Charlie’s Angels” fame – in conjunction with Garner Homes – chose Cordillera Ranch as the site of the first Cheryl Ladd Signature Home. Listed at $1.688 million, the 4,451-square-foot Spanish Revival home pairs European- and California-style architecture and charm with striking views of the surrounding Hill Country and close proximity to Cordillera Ranch’s Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course and clubhouse amenities.
One of the most exceptional things about Cordillera Ranch are the aforementioned resort-style amenities, all of which are located inside its gates.
