3. Heritage Inspired Architecture

A far cry from the “cookie cutter” look of many master-planned neighborhoods, Esperanza’s unique architecture is historically inspired, reminiscent of an 1850’s mission. This modern, yet elegant aesthetic (executed by hand-selected, highly acclaimed builders) pays homage to the area’s early history, using masonry construction and natural materials (native stone, earth-tone brick, and stucco).

4. An Ideal Location

With access to both the conveniences of the city and the beauty of the Hill Country, Esperanza’s northlying location is just 29 minutes to downtown San Antonio’s and just a few minutes from Boerne’s famous small-town charm.

5. A Wide Price Range

Besides “inspired living,” Esperanza is all about options. Offering homes in the low $300,000s and stretching upwards of $1 million, this neighborhood accommodates a variety of budgets.

6. Excellent Master-Planning

As the first master-planned community in Boerne, Esperanza also set out to be the best. From a group of planners with intense attention to detail, this neighborhood’s overall design goes truly above and beyond. This level of thoughtfulness can be seen in the five housing "pocket" neighborhoods (consisting of several distinct price ranges), strategic covenants and restrictions (to enhance property values), artful street scenes, the use of native stone and plants, a Texas Living Fence™, and more.

7. Plenty of Space to Roam

While we love the beautiful homes and top-notch pool setup Esperanza offers, our favorite detail might be the wide open space that surrounds and winds through this master-planned community. Encompassing a full 1,240 acres of rolling Hill Country landscape, Esperanza boasts 15 miles of hiking trails, a 23-acre city park, gigantic live oaks, native grasses, and limestone outcroppings. Overall, a full twenty-five percent (319 acres) of Esperanza is dedicated to open space, giving you plenty of room for “adventure” in your own backyard.

8. Thoughtful Education

Families who live in Esperanza are lucky indeed: children in this neighborhood are zoned to Boerne ISD, one of the metro area’s top 3 school districts ( according to Receiving an overall “A+” grade, Boerne Independent School District was also ranked in the top 50 “Safest School Districts in Texas” and #15 “Best School District in Texas”. Adding to the appeal, Esperanza will soon feature an on-site elementary school (set to open its doors in August 2019).
