Take the Plunge

There is no finer place in the Hill Country to enjoy the great outdoors than here at Cordillera Ranch. With expansive views and rugged landscapes, many property owners have used the terrain of their lots to create stunningly beautiful pools and water features along with the assistance of our Preferred Builders.

As we enjoy the warm temperatures this summer, we wanted to give you a visual tour of some of the finest pools our community offers.

Pools can serve a variety of purposes – some for exercise, some for entertaining, and others for aesthetics. Some are grand, some modest, some angular and others irregular. This extraordinary three-level pool overlooks grand northwestern Hill Country views of Cordillera Ranch and beyond. The negative edge seemingly spills off to the Guadalupe River valley below, carrying the eye of the viewing recipient well beyond, to absorb and appreciate the scenic artwork that only God could create. The natural shape, boulders falls, bubbling basins and surrounding native vegetation create an environment that perfectly suits the habitat of this spectacular site.

We designed this home and pool so that everyone would be able to enjoy the vast Hill Country views. The pool is perched on the hill overlooking the Guadalupe River. It offers an environment for relaxing, entertaining, playing, or exercising. It features it all: a beach entry, spa, cascading waterfall and infinity edge. We used a combination of stones to create this style. The pool is just off of the lower deck of the 815 sq. ft. porch with a dining area, kitchen, fireplace, and pool bath. The environment created through this design is thoughtful and creative by Authentic Custom Homes.

DC of B & C says that one of the biggest challenges of design and building pools on the golf course in Cordillera Ranch is balancing the desire for privacy with the ability to take in the golf course scenery as well. Privacy is achieved through thoughtful pool planning and proper landscaping to adorn the pool, deck and surrounding beds. Having managed the team that has crafted over a dozen pools on the CR golf course, Damon says they are all different but all “exemplify the concept of being good stewards of the property we got the chance with which to work”. The pool and landscaping at the new B & C Model Home at 445 Augusta was designed and installed by a talented team led by John Hackett of Dynamic Environments.

The level of requests for customization and ingenuity increases daily on our home designs, and the outdoor living area, specifically the pool area, is no different.  Recent customer trends have seen an increase in creative design requests so that this area is also very personalized for homeowners and their families.  Specialty features such as swim up bars, sun lounging areas, children play areas, and secret grottos are creative elements that help turn a regular outdoor pool area into a personal resort.  Gone are the days of paying over $50 a person to be entertained at a water park, because we are now installing lazy rivers, commercial slides and other adrenaline elements for the young at heart.  We’ve also helped people replace the need for gym pools by adding lap, diving and sport pools.  No matter the feature, you can be guaranteed that our homeowners are spending their days with fun in the sun!  For information on this, or on building a new custom homes, please contact Ray Stadler at 210.669.8265.
