Lifestyle by Stadler provides a luxury home building experience with a custom yet simplified approach. This year, the team brings two new homes designed for Hill Country living to Cordillera Ranch.  

“The Lifestyle by Stadler team is known for the experience, creativity and expertise we all bring to the custom home building process,” explains Vice President of Sales Dean Smith. “Our clients appreciate our communication-centric approach and that we are able to streamline the building process without sacrificing customization.” 

While Lifestyle by Stadler’s team of salespeople, architects, interior designers and contractors all work together to build their clients’ dream homes, it is clear that they are really designing a lifestyle that can be enjoyed for years to come. “We are dedicated to understanding the clear vision of the client and how they want to live their life,” adds Chief Operating Officer Richard Howell. “Being able to marry a floor plan with a design style and build to fit their unique needs are our ultimate goals. We have the expert team to make it happen.”   

Communication and integrated teamwork are central to Lifestyle by Stadler’s streamlined home building process. Personalized service and one-on-one communication start from day one. “We enjoy seeing clients get excited about potential homesites,” says Smith. “We meet with the client early on to get an understanding of what they want to accomplish. Then, we meet on their homesite with them and address their needs along with what the homesite has to offer.” 

Homeowners have the opportunity to meet with every member of their home building team throughout the process, and they have their own portal to keep up with the progress of their new house. “We hold weekly site meetings in-person and digitally so that in-town and out-of-town clients can easily keep up with their home build,” explains Smith.    

In addition to weekly updates, clients can have peace of mind knowing that multiple members on the Lifestyle by Stadler team are looking out for their best interests. “Members of our sales, purchasing and construction teams all review the plans for accuracy and to identify ways to enhance the build while also saving costs,” adds Howell.

As the longest standing Preferred Builder in Cordillera Ranch, the Stadler team attributes the community as being instrumental in their success. Ray Stadler, who founded the company in 1995, concludes, “Cordillera Ranch development and sales teams really care about maintaining value for their landowners and upholding very high standards. We will extend that same unparalleled quality, creativity and attention to detail in every home we build.”

“It’s About Quality, Simplicity and Creativity.” – Dean Smith, Vice President of Sales, Lifestyle by Stadler


A New Inventory Home Coming to Cordillera Ranch 

The Somerset home boasts resort-style living with unique features, including multiple patios and decks designed to take full advantage of the sweeping golf course, sunset and Hill Country views. Combining natural materials with clean lines, this Organic Modern-style retreat is made for families who enjoy an elevated lifestyle. The 4,250 square-foot floor plan includes three bedrooms, five bathrooms, a media room, a flex room and a three-car garage, which is perfect for homeowners who need extra space.  

The exterior of the home features a variety of rooflines, giving the property a modern edge while maintaining elements of transitional design. Wood tile, stone and stucco work together to create an interestingly accented facade that celebrates natural materials. 

Inside the home, you will enjoy open-concept living that embraces indoor-outdoor connections, expanding the usable living space well beyond the home’s walls. The lower-level master suite, great room and game room all have access to patios, and the flex space upstairs features a covered balcony with breathtaking views over the golf course. The well-designed floor plan features conveniences, like easy pool access and a laundry room attached to the master suite. Upgraded interior finishes include European white oak wood flooring, a freestanding tub in the master bathroom, and natural stone quartzite kitchen counters with matching backsplash. These elegant touches provide a luxurious feel to the property while celebrating the intrinsic beauty of natural materials.   



A New Inventory Home Coming to the Springs of Cordillera Ranch 

The Amarillo home is situated at the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac graced by live oaks, backing up to one of Cordillera Ranch’s tranquil parks. This elegant, family-friendly retreat offers a floor plan featuring three bedrooms, three bathrooms and over 3,500 square feet. Built in the Hill Country Transitional style, Amarillo offers classic Texan appeal reimagined for modern-day living.  

The home’s exterior features white Texas limestone and stucco paired with contrasting charcoal metal roofing, black windows and impactful double iron front doors. The simple color combination offers a timeless look, and durable materials provide easy maintenance for a growing family.  

Inside, homeowners can utilize an open-concept floor plan for entertaining, relaxing and bonding together as a family. An expansive living-dining-kitchen space opens onto a covered patio through panoramic sliding glass doors, promoting an indoor-outdoor lifestyle made for enjoying the beautiful scenery the Texas Hill Country has to offer. The Amarillo floor plan also features a large master closet, private master garden and game room. While all finishes can be customized for any Lifestyle by Stadler build, this inventory home features hard surface flooring throughout and an upgraded Thermador® kitchen package complete with a 42-inch range. 

The Lifestyle by Stadler portfolio of custom homes reflects an attention to architectural detail and quality construction, creative and innovative features and, most importantly, a commitment to accommodating each homeowner’s lifestyle through a collaborative and streamlined process from start to finish.
