One last note. Keep in mind Sterling Ranch is currently under construction, and as is common with large, in-flight master developments, various aspects of the community may change over time. It will take 20-25 years to completely build out all 9 Villages, and by then we may have self-driving cars and who knows what else. Sterling Ranch (and the info. above) will have to grow – and change - as time goes on. All the numbers and data set forth above are estimates only.
