Stillwater Ranch: The Beauty of the Country So Close to the City

Located on Culebra Road, two miles west of Loop 1604, Stillwater Ranch is said to be “a place where neighbors quickly become friends.” Encompassing 830 acres, the master-planned neighborhood has aspirations to build 2,300 residential units- 1,000 of which have already been sold.

Known for its meticulous landscaping and wide-open feel, along with its grand, adobe-walled central boulevard, Stillwater Ranch is quickly resonating with buyers as a special place to come home to. In this neighborhood, residents are able to enjoy the beauty of the country, while being within minutes from the city. “Stillwater Ranch is out of the San Antonio city limits so there are no city taxes. It’s also so quiet and peaceful here at night. There’s wildlife and a natural feel.,” says resident Michaell Gehrman. “It’s a really good neighborhood. People are always out walking, talking and enjoying their kids and dogs.”

A diverse community made up of several smaller neighborhoods, buyers have their choice of housing style at a price range that fits their budget. Eight of San Antonio’s leading home builders offer homes in Stillwater Ranch: Highland, Coventry, DR Horton, New Leaf, Chesmar, Lennar, Lynnewood and Ryland Homes. Stillwater Ranch requires architectural standards to be met by all builders, ensuring that “as the community matures residents continue to be surrounded by the gracious warmth of a beautiful place that just gets better and better.” With over 80 different plans offered, and home prices ranging from the low $200s to the low $400s, buyers are often impressed with their options.

Aside from the excellent housing options, residents of Stillwater Ranch enjoy great, family-friendly amenities. In addition to a 6,000 square-foot, resort-style swimming pool, the community offers a shaded playground for children to enjoy year round. For the sports minded resident, lighted tennis and basketball courts, along with a fitness center and a two-mile nature trail, complete the list of well-appointed facilities.

Keeping in mind that Stillwater Ranch is often a lifestyle upgrade for buyers, the community employs CCMC as its community association management company. With Stillwater Ranch as the property manager's only community focus, the preservation and preventative maintenance of the neighborhood is given top priority. Additionally, the property manager manages a full calendar of resident activities, including Egg-stream Easter egg hunts, movie nights in the park, and a Fourth of July parade, just to name a few. And, while it may sound hard to believe, the low homeowner association fee of just $565 each year gives residents the ability to enjoy all of the neighborhood amenities.

But it’s not just the amenities and the handsome housing stock that has buyers flocking to Stillwater Ranch. The community is also located within NISD, one of San Antonio’s premier school districts. As one of the highest rated school districts in Bexar County, NISD offers students in Stillwater Ranch assignments to Taft High School and Folks Middle School. For students just getting started, the exemplary rated Scarborough Elementary School is located on-site in the community.

Exceptional amenities, top-notch schools, outstanding housing- what more could a buyer want? How about location? Stillwater Ranch is located on the far North-West side of San Antonio; an area that has seen tremendous growth and popularity over the past decade. The area features close access to shopping, entertainment, medical facilities, and military bases. Resident Crysti Vachon gushes, “We love the house, the gym, and our two boys really love the pool. There’s great shopping really close. But what we really like is the feel of driving into the country to get home.” With immediate access to Loop 1604, it feels as if everything is within reach.
