“We plan on living at Rancho Sienna for a very long time,” says the Byrnes family
“I haven’t met a single person yet who has not been friendly,” says Ashley Byrnes of her fellow residents at Rancho Sienna.
Ashley and her family, which includes husband Bryan and 3-year-old son Carter, are relatively new to Rancho Sienna, having moved in during the summer of 2020. But they’ve been quick to immerse themselves in community life and enjoy the more than 100 acres of parks, trails and natural open space that surround their Chesmar home.
Ashley has a new role as president of the HOA activities committee, which plans fun social events for residents of all ages, such as Third Thursday Thirsty Socials for adults, and the Spring Fling and other events for kids.
“I’ve always loved throwing parties and organizing events for friends and families,” Ashley says. “I was also on the activities committee in our old neighborhood in Buda, so it seemed only natural that I should volunteer to help with Rancho Sienna’s events. Planning events here is a lot of fun, because they are so many amenities to use in our programming, such as Sienna House, Wilderness Park and the wonderful trails.”
The Byrnes were introduced to Rancho Sienna by their high school friends, Sam and Robyn Wolfshohl, who had moved in earlier.
“After visiting Sam and Robin a few times, we started thinking about moving to Rancho Sienna ourselves,” she says. “We started following the community Facebook page to get an idea of what it was like to live here, and it did seem like a fun and active community where everyone was very friendly.”
High school sweethearts, Ashley and Bryan grew up in Houston. They both went to the University of Texas – Bryan in Austin and Ashley in San Antonio. They lived in San Antonio and Buda before making the move to Rancho Sienna.
As a certified child life specialist with a master’s degree in family and child studies, Ashley was impressed by the reputation of the Liberty Hill Independent School District serving Rancho Sienna.
“Schools were definitely a priority for us, and we did a lot of research before choosing Rancho Sienna and Liberty Hill ISD. It has every indicator of being a strong, well-run school district that is also parent-friendly,” she says.
Bryan operates a custom homebuilding company, Breven Homes, with his brother. They are currently working on projects in Liberty Hill, so the Byrnes family appears to be strongly rooted in Rancho Sienna.
“At some point, we may want to move up to a larger home, but we plan on staying in Rancho Sienna for a very long time,” Ashley says.
