One of the joys of launching new phases of development in Cordillera Ranch is the hours spent exploring these undeveloped areas because the natural beauty is so abundant and unique, even as we move from phase to phase. The God-given canvas of the Texas Hill Country inspires an inordinate amount of time walking the land and planning to ensure we’re designing each neighborhood in way that works with the land and helps preserve the natural beauty while accommodating spacious homesites that maximize views and privacy. Unlike more suburban neighborhood design and planning (which is often the product of engineers in an office), the vast majority of our detailed planning at Cordillera Ranch is done the old-fashioned way of walking the land over and over and over, with contour and aerial maps on an iPhone or iPad, to refine a layout so that streets meander to create an appealing streetscape, and most importantly dodge as many mature oak trees as possible. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not just as simple as reckless design driven by squeezing as many lots onto the land as possible — in fact we’re often careful to reduce a lot here and there if it’s negatively affecting the streetscape, other nearby lots or wouldn’t result in an ideal building site.
The two newest property releases in Cordillera Ranch reveal some of this painstaking — and multi-year process — as they feature some rare Guadalupe River frontage estates (the first release of River lots in over 15 years) as well as breathtaking panoramic views across the Hill Country. The streets in both of these phases have been meticulously designed to create boulevards around multiple clusters of mature, towering oak trees to produce streetscapes that preserve and weave around nature’s landmarks. These new releases, now available for lot selection, are described below:
Hawk Canyon, Unit 13
Years in planning, this rare gem of property conveniently positioned near the main entry, Hawk Canyon, sprawls across 78 acres and features numerous ridge-line perches from which homesites will capture the most premier panoramic views in Cordillera Ranch. These 2 to 4+-acre estates offer the most convenient access to the front gate, appealing to residents seeking the easiest connection to San Antonio’s wide array of restaurants just 20 minutes away or Boerne’s charm only 10 minutes from this neighborhood.
The limited offering of 28 homesites features a central water system and gated entry, but it’s the breathtaking views across the canyon full of massive heritage oaks that will captivate you.

Springs of Cordillera Ranch, Unit 305
The newest release in the Springs of Cordillera Ranch, Unit 305, offers premier view and Guadalupe River-front estates. This addition of 42 homesites spanning 160 acres has a mix of 5 to 7-acre estates suitable as horse properties, nine new Guadalupe River properties ranging from 2 to 7 acres as well as 2 to 3-acre bluff view estates perched at the cliff’s edge of the Panther Creek canyon, revealing the 60+-acre nature area below. Neither words nor pictures adequately illustrate the uniqueness of these properties; you simply have to see them yourself.
