Residents find true feeling of community at Rancho Sienna
One thing we hear over and over from Rancho Sienna residents is how quickly they make new friends here, and how they soon discover a feeling of “community” that had eluded them in their previous neighborhoods.
“After living in downtown Austin and South Austin, we wanted to find somewhere that had a keen focus on family and community, said C.J. and Emily Rodine. “We enjoy the events and activities that Rancho Sienna hosts for residents, and the camaraderie we have already developed with our neighbors because of those activities.”
“Prepare to make lots of friends and be social if you move to Rancho Sienna,” said Jon and Kimber Pevehouse, who relocated to Austin from Southern California with their 11-year-old son. “We visited 16 communities in the area when we were looking for our new home, and we’re very happy we chose Rancho Sienna. Our favorite thing is all of the great families and friends we have met.”
“People are what make this community great. Getting to know the neighbors at the community events and socials has been perfect for our family. We have built some really strong friendships pretty quickly,” said Phil Traina, who moved to Rancho Sienna from California’s Silicon Valley with his wife and two children.
Rancho Sienna’s friendly nature also embraces families without kids at home, such as James and Christina Morgan, whose two grown daughters live in Maryland and Alaska.
“After living on 47 acres in the Hill Country, with no other houses within 100 yards of our home, we were a little concerned about being back in a suburban neighborhood,” said Christina. “But we have been pleasantly surprised at how friendly everyone has been, and how much open space there is to explore here in Rancho Sienna.
John and Cheryl Kelsey also find Rancho Sienna to be a welcoming community for couples with empty nests.
“We have had so much fun getting to know our neighbors,” Cheryl said. “The scenery and landscaping are also beautiful. When we drive into the community, we feel a sense of peace and relaxation, knowing this is our forever home.”
“Everyone we’ve met so far has been very welcoming and gracious,” said Lauren and George Devore, who have three grown children. “We were surprised by how quickly Rancho Sienna felt like home.”
Rancho Sienna’s events and activities introduce many neighbors for the first time, and often they just meet amid the 100+ acres of parks, trails and natural open spaces in the community, including the social hub, Sienna House.
