The Ultimate in Luxury Living from Lifestyle By Stadler

Kimberly A. Suta

The Lifestyle by Stadler portfolio of homes reflects 29 years of custom home building.

Their attention to architectural details, thoughtful site placement, innovative features and luxury design finishes equals their commitment to accommodating each homeowner's lifestyle and providing overall client satisfaction.

“We continue to be the longest-standing Preferred Builder in Cordillera Ranch due to the creativity and quality of our builds,” noted Dean Smith, the V.P. of Sales who has 34 years of experience in the industry. “Plus, our deep relationship with the Cordillera Ranch team and experience with the architectural process saves our clients both time and money,” added Sara Kathryn Savage, Marketing Manager & Sales Assistant. 

Lifestyle by Stadler currently has a model home available for viewing and is in the midst of designing an incredible new 5,000-square-foot model home, which will be situated in the Clubs area at Cordillera Ranch. But even more exciting, they are close to completion of a brand-new inventory home in the Springs of Cordillera Ranch. This stunning one-story home on 57 Sotol Lane sits on a serene oversized lot with 2.34 acres of land and features a transitional open floor plan with an extraordinary number of enviable details.

When folks move to Cordillera Ranch, one of the primary reasons is most certainly for the majestic views of the Texas Hill Country. “If you stand in the foyer, you can look all the way through the house and out to the hill tops of Twin Sisters, about 15 miles away. Having a great view is highly desired. It’s definitely something that people look for here in the Hill Country,” said Dean. 

This 4,364-square-foot house, which will be completed in July, offers four bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, a three-car garage, formal dining room, study and game room, with large sliding door walls in the back of the great room that can be opened to create one large open space connecting the covered outdoor patio. “The intention for this home was meant for someone who likes to entertain,” said Dean. 

The master suite also has sliding doors, which lead out to the spa and pool area, highlighted by a waterfall feature that drops down into the pool. Who wouldn’t want to wake up to that in the morning? 

As far as the aesthetic of 57 Sotol Lane, the team at Stadler stayed on trend by creating a motif the decorator calls organic modern. The interior is filled with warm tones and colors, stained cabinets, wood floors throughout and even wood ceilings in the great room and kitchen with decorative wood treatments. Floating beams in the foyer and the floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace in the living room accentuate the look. 

Other highlights worth noting include an oversized iron entry door and a spacious outdoor kitchen with a large wood burning fireplace. Inside, the kitchen surrounds a large center island with fully extended and soft close cabinet drawers, and top-of-the-line Thermador® stainless appliances include a 48-inch range with griddle and a 30-inch column refrigerator and freezer. 

With the trend for master baths including sizable walk-in showers as well as a luxurious soaking tub, this house checks all the boxes here as well. To top it off, the bathroom features a coffee bar to make that morning ritual even more convenient. “Something that I think is unique in the master bath is the Texas white limestone feature behind the free-standing tub that goes all the way up to the ceiling and matches the exterior stone,” offered Sara Kathryn. 

Another perk for potential homeowners includes an optional wine room. “Currently, it’s designed to be a closet because typically 40 percent of our clients don’t want a wine room, but it’s prepped to convert into one. We’d just have to install the cooling equipment and change out the door. It’s easy to do,” explained Dean. 

Although the potential wine room, idyllic long-distance views, pool and hot tub all sound fantastic, there’s one other perk to this property that is likely to seal the deal — all utilities (water, propane, electric and sewer) are community. “It’s unusual to have an acreage home site that’s connected to community utilities, so it’s a nice feature. Some people don’t like the idea of having to mess with a septic or worry about their well drying up,” said Dean.

What’s not unusual is Lifestyle by Stadler knocking it out of the park once again with yet another fantastic house that’s soon to be a family’s beloved dream home. “We have received great feedback on the house, so we anticipate it selling very quickly,” shared Dean. “We like to think that what sets Stadler apart is the quality of our builds and the precautions we take while building, along with utilizing the topography of the ground, meaning we design a home that works perfectly with the home site. We want everything to blend into the environment.”

“I’d also like to add that we’re very transparent with our clients. We’re all about doing it right and open. And Dean does a really good job at providing constant photo updates for our clients, anytime something major is happening, such as the foundation being poured, or the framing. He’s always there to make sure it gets done. The clients really like being a part of that process,” added Sara Kathryn. 

It’s undeniable that Stadler goes above and beyond to create intimate relationships with their clients. They even celebrate them on special occasions during their build, like for birthdays and anniversaries. “We’re really being true friends and family to our clients. Building a house is such a personal process, so we try to make the whole experience as personal as possible,” said Dean.

Sara Kathryn concurred, “We like to stay in touch even after their home is built.”
