Welcome to our neighborhood! We’re Santa Rita Ranch, the Texas Hill Country’s newest master-planned community, and hopefully, your new home. This blog is intended to be a trusted and entertaining resource for our residents and the area at large. We’ll feature all things Santa Rita Ranch as well as local news, events, special offers and more.
Since the earliest planning stages of Santa Rita Ranch, learning has been at the heart of our community. We place the highest value on exploration, discovery and education – whether it’s in the classroom or outside chasing fireflies along the San Gabriel River on a breezy Hill Country night – where you can view a sky full of stars.
In fact, this land has always been a place of exploration, even in its natural state: the family of Elizabeth Horne, developer Ed Horne’s wife, previously owned a portion of the land that is now a part of Santa Rita Ranch. Elizabeth grew up traversing and enjoying the land with her family. The Horne’s son, Nash Horne, also grew up exploring the terrain and “learning from the land” and today he helps his parents in the development of Santa Rita Ranch… it’s a family thing.
Speaking of development, when our North and South neighborhoods are complete, residents will have the choice of sending their kids to either Liberty Hill or Georgetown ISD schools — both award-winning districts.
We’re so invested in education, that for every home sold in Santa Rita Ranch, our builders will contribute $1,000 to a local education fund for our students…which will eventually grow to $6 million or more.
It’s all part of creating a real, vibrant and enduring community for generations to come — so come see for yourself! Santa Rita Ranch features a total of nine distinct villages spanning 3,100 rolling acres. Each village boasts fantastic amenities, with access to pools, parks, trails, on-site schools, a family sports complex and sports fields and a Town Center. Upon completion, there will be 6,000 homes.
