Tucked away in the hills just five minutes from Fredericksburg lies Boot Ranch, a luxury ranch community which has taken full advantage of the Texas Hill Country’s ability to draw people away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Many people come to the Hill Country to experience the serenity of nature, the fresh air, and the sheer beauty of seemingly endless, rolling hills. The peacefulness of the countryside brings people back again and again for a little rest and relaxation. Many decide to pick up their roots and transplant them to their own little piece of heaven here in the Hill Country. Boot Ranch is a place that gives people the opportunity to do both.

Professional golfer Hal Sutton bought a place in Junction, TX to recharge his batteries between championship golf tournaments. One day, he drove into Fredericksburg for a meal and fell in love with the area. Sutton had dubbed it the “Aspen, Colorado for Texas”, stated Sean Gioffre, Boot Ranch’s Director of Real Estate Sales and Marketing. The Hill Country had become Sutton’s retreat and he wanted others to have the same opportunity. So, he purchased 2,050 acres to develop a ranch that would offer all, if not more, of the luxury of a five star hotel, but with the perks of home ownership and the ability to practice your golf swing on a championship golf course.

“When people think of Texas they think of [cowboy] boots” Gioffre explained. Hence the name Boot Ranch. “Hal Sutton wanted Boot Ranch to be different than most ranches. There is a lot of upkeep involved in a 150 acre ranch.” Gioffre explains, “[The homesites] are small enough so that there is minimal upkeep.” Boot Ranch offers homesites spanning in size from a half acre up to just over 18 acres. The homes are built to closely resemble the houses built by German settlers and the ranch even offers shared Sunday Houses.
