For the award-winning Burdick Custom Homes, becoming Cordillera Ranch’s Preferred Builder is a huge honor. “Burdick has always built in the best neighborhoods in San Antonio,” said Chairman and CEO, Art Burdick, “I know of none that are superior to Cordillera Ranch.”

Being a Preferred Builder gives Burdick the opportunity to create truly unique and timeless homes thanks to their nearly four-decade history of excellent client satisfaction, an uncompromising commitment to quality and impeccable taste in design. “The Ranch has some of the most gorgeous land and vistas in all of Texas,” added Burdick, who sees this partnership as a natural progression for the group’s continued reputation as the premier builder in Boerne and Kendall County.

A sign of Burdick’s intuitive design style — which has earned decades of loyal clients — Burdick’s first spec home since re-joining the Preferred Builder program sold quickly after starting construction. This has prompted the Burdick team to begin plans on their next home, also in Clubs Village.  

Situated on a spacious one-acre homesite overlooking the creek-lined hole #12 of the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, this spectacular four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath smart home is slated to be under construction in early 2021 with a list price of just under $2.4MM. The architecture blends both modern and classic, marrying sleek finishes with cozy, natural materials that all exist harmoniously in this approximately 4,525-square-foot home. The home includes a three-car garage, a study off the foyer, a game room with a wet bar, and an open great room and kitchen that connects to covered back patios. An ample supply of natural light is filtered through clerestory windows strategically placed throughout the home. “Over the years, Burdick has been known for their detail in construction finish out and that will definitely be seen in this contemporary clean lined home,” said Monika Morris, Vice President of the building group. 

The home is full of designer touches that take advantage of its contemporary style. For example, the kitchen’s smoother drywall texture and flat front cabinets disguise appliances and adhere to the bold lines on the large format tile backsplash and flooring. “The kitchen is a professional cook’s dream,” said Morris, “With a 48” gas stove with six burners and a griddle, a 30” freezer and 30” fridge, and high-quality ovens, cooks of all skill levels will love entertaining friends and family.” But Morris said “it’s the master suite that really sets this home apart from others,” with sliding glass doors leading to the patio and floor-to-ceiling windows that display Cordillera Ranch’s incredible views of the Texas Hill Country.

“The back of the home is ideal for entertaining with multiple patios to provide several gathering spaces,” continued Morris. An indoor/outdoor space lets guests and conversation flow naturally, perfect for hosting afternoon parties or evening cocktails, and an outdoor kitchen located off the deck makes summertime barbecues a breeze. With a pool and spa, a sunken sitting area with a fire pit, and even a professional putting green, there’s entertainment for everyone. Or simply relax and enjoy the views from the 1.037-acre, elevated lot overlooking the fairway of the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course with a breathtaking panorama of three holes and picturesque natural landscaping. “The home, when completed, will have both a smooth stone and split face stone facade,” said Morris, “specifically Lueders limestone and Boral Cultured Stone®, along with stucco and a metal roof with accents here and there.” In front, glass garage doors enforce the home’s clean, streamlined aesthetic and a courtyard shields the front entry, designed to create privacy and beauty.

What has always set Burdick Custom Homes apart is their client service and the personal touches that instill confidence, whether one is looking for a first-time home or to further expand their real estate, in a way only the No.1 Custom Home Builder in the San Antonio area can. “The residents of Cordillera represent my second family,” said Tracy Harris, Burdick’s Director of Client Relations, “I have a strong relationship with the team at Cordillera and many fond memories.” For many on the team, being bestowed the honor of Preferred Builder is like a return home. “I take pleasure in helping find the perfect home in my old stomping grounds,” said Harris, who previously sold homesites in the community for Cordillera Ranch Realty for many years. To make the deal sweeter, Harris is an avid golfer, and to be able to place this home on the fairway of his favorite golf course is a privilege.

Burdick Custom Homes’ portfolio of over 30 years showcases a variety of beautifully designed homes that mix styles, locally sourced materials and quality craftsmanship, while their company reputation reflects their determination in helping clients realize their vision. This home is no exception and has the advantage of being in Cordillera Ranch, one of the most sought-after areas for home buyers in Texas, with its Club amenities, natural serenity and proximity to San Antonio.
