Welcome to Fair Oaks Ranch
Countryside oasis within the city’s reach
Fair Oaks Ranch is a tranquil expanse of stunning countryside, located less than thirty miles from Downtown San Antonio and only a 10-minute drive from charming Boerne. Once the private ranchland of oil baron Ralph Fair, Fair Oaks Ranch was parcelled into residential land in 1975, and by 1978 the iconic Fair homestead was transformed into the local golf and country club. With unmatched Hill Country views and an oasis for local wildlife, a close-knit community and family-friendly atmosphere, and diverse architectural texture created from custom-built homes, there is nowhere else on earth like Fair Oaks Ranch.
