What an incredible year 2016 was at Boot Ranch. We enjoyed record property sales, welcomed many new member families, orchestrated a robust schedule of popular Club events, and began work on our amenity expansion. As we start 2017, we’d like to share some highlights of the past 12 months.
We experienced terrific success in real estate, with 58 properties being sold or placed under reservation during the year. We launched two new property types—Country Homes and Village Homes—and both have met with an enthusiastic buyer response. In December we completed Sunday House 5 and welcomed its 8 owners to the Boot Ranch family. The Boot Ranch Realty team gave more than 180 tours of our breathtaking property to those interested in becoming members and owning property.
Speaking of breathtaking—the transformation of the Longhorn Lake area into the newest destination at Boot Ranch for outdoor fun is in full swing, and we’re on schedule to complete a two-mile trail segment and all the lake amenities by next summer. The Landing, a lakeside open air pavilion, is nearly complete and will soon be surrounded by a beach area for lounging, a boardwalk, and amazing treehouses. We’ve built an old-fashioned raft for crossing the lake to make a splash at the jumping rocks.
