The custom-built San Antonio estate of George Strait saw a price revision recently. The 12.2-acre property is asking $6.9 million. Strait listed it initially in 2019 with an ask of $8.9 million. That’s a positive bargain, considering the provenance of the property and the degree of attention paid to even the smallest details.
The home was designed by Bill Tull, a notable Southwestern artist who preferred painting to drafting, and the three-bedroom house is certainly compositional. Its architectural elements amount to a conflation of the region, with Pueblo, Santa Fe and Mission elements.
The interiors are packed with surprises. Details are extraordinary; from custom doorknobs to hand-painted murals, the house is an artwork with accommodations. This house is the polar opposite of developer spec-built, and its authenticity is unusually affecting. Its rustic feel is so intense one can nearly smell the pinyon.
The 7,925 sq. ft. of interiors are supported by an outdoor living area with a patio, an infinity-edge pool, a spa, and a sports court.
Strait has sold over 100 million records worldwide. He’s released 29 studio albums and topped not only country charts but the Billboard 200 chart a few times as well. He’s also achieved chart-topping glory with his 2004 compilation album, 50 Number Ones.
