“Oh, I thought that was just a giant extension of the suburbs,” is what you’ll hear many times when a master-planned community is mentioned. General thinking about these types of communities are that they are hundreds of identical homes lining dozens of grid-like, impersonal blocks.

That couldn’t be further from reality. Master-planned communities are a blend of every feature that a homeowner could want or need without leaving the gates of their community. The Nocatee Community blog narrowed the list of advantages to this type of living down to these top five.

A Unique Sense of Community

Many planned communities contain a high amount of new builds, so most likely you are going to know your neighbors from almost the moment they begin building their new home — and that’s in our “Ranch Code”. At Santa Rita Ranch, we encourage our residents to “get to know our neighbors”, and have planned our community to foster those relationships in all areas of our neighborhoods. This and in addition to a robust community calendar give you every opportunity to spend time with your neighbors in the beautiful Hill Country surroundings that you chose as your long term home.


All the Perks

Don’t worry about finding a community pool or deciding if the local waterpark is too far away. Within the gates of Santa Rita Ranch, you’ll find all the extra things that make living here so attractive. From future sports facilities to state-of-the-art splash parks & pools, our neighborhoods will eventually contain retail options, schools and so much more.


Choice of Builders

Homes in these communities are not cookie-cutter and are definitely not built in mass quantity. Every homebuyer has a choice among our 9 different builders to find a style and price that’s customized to them. Many of our builders specialize in master-planned communities and have numerous floorplan options available to you as well.

Location, Location, Location

Not only are most of these communities located within the proximity of a major metro destinations like Georgetown, Austin, Round Rock, and Cedar Park, the entire infrastructure has been carefully planned and designed to be conducive to things like your morning commute or picking up the kiddos from school.

Going Green

According to the Nocatee Community blog, a study done by the National Association of Realtors in 2008 revealed that the number one desired amenity of a neighborhood was nature trails. So for those who enjoy the natural beauty of the great state of Texas, you will find all of that and more living at Santa Rita Ranch. Designed to incorporate natural beauty and promote an active lifestyle, our master-planned community encourages all to embrace the beauty around us with miles of hike & bike nature trails.
