The Ranch Code

At Santa Rita Ranch the developer of our beautiful master-planned community, Elizabeth and Ed Horne have a true connection to the ranch that allows every decision that is made to be in support of their core values: The Ranch Code. Just like scouts or cowboys, we’ve got a set of rules we live by, that make life a little sweeter and relationships a lot stronger. These values are what push us to always strive for the best in our community by blazing our own trail (Ranch Code #7), always take pride in our work (Ranch Code #4), stay committed to a robust calendar of fun and facilitate a family focused environment everyday. And of course we always remember to have fun along the way (Ranch Code #11)!

Ranch Code #1: Learn from the land
Breathe in freshness. We respect the importance of nature, and encourage our community to explore our 300+ acres of Texas Hill Country, play outside, and discover nature and all its treasures.

Ranch Code #2: Enjoy Family Bonds 
Live where the heart is. To call a place home is special, so we designed our community to be warm, cozy, and tremendously welcoming. From entertainment centers to outdoor fun, the Ranch brings families together and strengthens bonds between neighbors.
