Discover Why Willis Ranch Homes Owners Choose Homes Designed with Beautiful Loggias.

Expertly designed with a special covering technique to ensure open spaces are left undisturbed to the natural beauty, homes owners in the Willis Ranch master planned community have the luxury of unspoiled views of the foothills of the Texas Hill Country. With the perfect backdrop surrounding these new homes in San Antonio, Sitterle Homes has designed each of its new homes in the community to take full advantage of this landscape with elegant outdoor spaces that feature covered patios or loggias.


While many San Antonio new homes for sale offer covered patios, the loggia is a bit different in design and purpose. Dating back to mid-18th century design, a loggia, the Italian word for lodge, by definition is a gallery or room with open air on one side, typically with one or more sides that also form part of the house and one side open to the garden. These elegant outdoor spaces are often distinguished by elaborate arches or columns and are often located at ground level on the side of a home vs. the back of the home where covered patios are typically located. Loggias also offer added protection from the elements with only one side open air making it more than an outdoor space, but truly an extension of the home.


Designed for comfort and leisure, a loggia is the perfect place for entertaining during the warm months and even throughout the year with those that feature an outdoor fireplace. Willis Ranch homeowners will find themselves drawn to this part of their home using it as a personal retreat and a place to gather with family and friends. And with the exceptional Hill Country views it’s easy to see why San Antonio homeowners love the peaceful elegance of a loggia.
