Luxury Community Continues to Grow and Thrive
By: Liza Mencarini
Imagine 8,700 acres of rolling country hills, extraordinary views and the crystal clear spring waters of the Guadalupe River. Instead of asphalt, there’s winding paths; and in place of traffic lights, dazzling fields of wildflowers.
This oasis exists at Cordillera Ranch, located just outside of San Antonio in the heart of Texas Hill Country. Behind the gates of this master-planned community there are truly something special for everyone. Considered one of Texas’ most desirable addresses, Cordillera Ranch boasts the best of resort-style living, complemented by stunning nature and gorgeous homes. It is a resident’s utopia.
Cordillera Ranch was one of America’s first communities to champion the resort-style amenity trend and features seven spectacular clubs – The Golf Club, Tennis and Swim Club, Spa and Athletic Club, Social Club, Equestrian Club, Rod and Gun Club and River Club. Gone are the days of residents dreaming about resort vacations; at Cordillera Ranch they live a resort-style life. Residents can easily book a massage, take a swim in one of the infinity pools and enjoy a delicious formal dinner paired with cellar club wines – all in their backyard.
Another special aspect about Cordillera Ranch is the community’s dedication to preserving nature and native open space. Over 80% of the development remains native Hill Country vegetation, which benefits local wildlife and helps minimize the impact on one of Texas’ most precious resources – water.
In addition, the community has instituted lighting ordinances, which control light pollution and benefit stargazers. The night sky at Cordillera Ranch is spectacular, with a crystal-clear sky and views of the stars’ brilliance for miles. In fact, one of the neighborhood’s most well-known residents, PGA Tour player Jimmy Walker, doubles as an astrophotographer from his Cordillera Ranch estate.
Real estate-wise, the luxury community has achieved record sales the past few years, and new home building has continued at an exceptional rate. Anywhere from 40-50 homes are under construction at any given time. Due to high buyer demand, the community just introduced its latest luxury enclave, The Springs of Cordillera Ranch. Primed for development, The Springs of Cordillera Ranch features home sites from 3/4 to three-plus acres boasting sweeping Hill Country vistas, multiple trails and easy access to the Guadalupe River.
“We’re thrilled to officially unveil The Springs,” says Charlie Hill, President and Chief Operating Officer for DH Investments, developer of Cordillera Ranch. “The neighborhood’s cypress-lined creeks and massive oak trees punctuate a unique mix of stunning residential options amid the natural beauty of the Texas Hill Country.”
Outside of The Springs, estate lots range from 1 to 10-plus acres, including a variety of golf course, riverfront, river access, hilltop and valley view home sites. Showcasing the area’s top builders, the home styles at Cordillera Ranch include Tuscan, Old World Mediterranean, traditional Texas Hill Country ranches and cutting edge Hill Country transitional, which subtly blends in some of today’s contemporary trends. The community’s prestigious Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course ranks as one of the best in the Lone Star State, and its 40,000 square-foot clubhouse wrought from native limestone and hard woods, is a favorite gathering spot for residents to chat, dine and make memories.
