Native Texan Valerie Petrie grew up with parents who were an antique dealer and interior designer, which not only taught her the value of architectural beauty but also the importance of a sense of place.
So it makes sense that the Kuper Sotheby's International Realty agent chose to live in Cordillera Ranch, located right outside the quaint town of Boerne and very close to San Antonio's shopping and attractions.
"It offers sophisticated living, but you can hear the crickets at night and see the stars," she says. "I love that you can be a part of a great neighborhood but still have space, and the views are beautiful."
Living in the area has also allowed Petrie to become an expert on the community, developing an in-depth understanding of the homes in Cordillera Ranch as well as the area's overall market performance.
Below are a few of Petrie's picks for the best spots in this hot area, as well as a hot listing that could turn you into a 78006 resident.
Eating and drinking
If you live in Cordillera Ranch you have the option to be a member of the clubs, which give you access to dining facilities with delicious food and an outdoor grill area perfect for summer afternoons. There are often social events like wine tastings, family dinners, couples nights, and more that outside of social distancing times bring friends and neighbors together.
Outdoors and recreation
The club also offers residents plenty of outdoor activities like tennis, golf, an equestrian center, a gun club with skeet shooting, exercise facilities, and a pool. There is an outfitter center that organizes Guadalupe River float trips and hunting trips that leave from the property.
