Luxury meets tranquility in Cordillera Ranch, an 8,700-acre master-planned community approximately 40 minutes northwest of San Antonio.
Spectacular Hill Country views and resort-style amenities are among the features that continue to attract homebuyers to developer David Hill’s exclusive gated community. The natural beauty of the rolling hills and the Guadalupe River, which flows along the northern edge of Cordillera Ranch, add to the picturesque package.
Cordillera Ranch residents have access to numerous amenities such as the Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course and memberships to seven resort-style clubs. There are clubs for those who like tennis, equestrian events, swimming, wine tasting, and more. The community even has clubs and camps for children. If guests are in town, they can stay in luxury boutique-style suites on the property, The Lodges at Cordillera Ranch. This community has so much to offer, one can easily see why it appeals to everyone from families with school-age children to empty nesters. Several celebrities, such as country music legend George Strait, call this community home.
