Most Texas residents face the classic choice: “Do I choose the wide open space of the country or the conveniences of the big city?” For Cordillera Ranch residents, the answer is, “Both!” Nestled in the rolling landscape of the Hill Country (and just outside charming small-town Boerne, Texas), Cordillera Ranch’s location also provides convenient highway access to San Antonio’s buzzing cultural hub in just 20 minutes.

2. Waterfront Property

Not an area usually known for waterfront property (most head to New Braunfels or Canyon Lake), Boerne’s meandering waterways are smaller and less populated hidden gems...which means that waterfront property is lush, private, and highly sought-after. Thankfully, Cordillera Ranch offers properties in Waterfront Estates (on Swede Lake) and Guadalupe River Estates. Draped with limestone cliffs and crystal-clear waters, these properties offer views and adventures that most Boerne residents can only dream of.

3. Resort-Style Clubhouse
