Live like The King of Country in his stunning San Antonio home.
This is what I call an ace in the hole, pun intended. George Strait's gorgeous, gleaming estate in San Antonio, Texas—a shining white Adobe-walled beacon of Southwestern architecture, design, and real estate—is on the market for $8.9 million. “What is so special about this house is not really who owns it,” listing agent Tamara Strait with Strait Luxury and Phyllis Browning Co. says. “It's special because of the amazing thought and attention to detail that was put in to every step of the build. This home truly is one of a kind and can never be recreated.”

Bill Tull, the world-renowned Arizona artist-turned-architect who passed away in 2000, custom-built the Santa Fe-style abode for Mr. Strait. Among extensive hand-crafted details, the nearly 8,000-square-foot dwelling features imported Adobe materials, 14 hand-sculpted fireplaces, custom stained glass windows designed by Tull, saguaro cactus rib shutters, a custom Tull-designed copper bar top, two en suite oversized guest bedrooms with customized baths, an exercise room with a sauna, a separate casita equipped with its own living and dining accommodations, a sport court, and an infinity edge pool and spa to boot.

The privately gated 12.2-acre property sits atop a hill in The Dominion, a luxury community in San Antonio. In the years that the country music legend and C&I cover star called this secluded retreat his home, he could view city lights to the south and the Texas Hill Country to the north.
A home fit for a king? We'd say so. In fact, to inspire our regal interior design imaginations, listing agent Tamara Strait provided us with virtually staged images of the palatial spaces inside, as well as photographs capturing every custom angle of the property. Take a peek below for more details and more stunning shots of this incredible home.
