Country Music King George Strait Sells Texas Ranch After Four Years In The Market


After four years, country music legend George Strait finally sold his nearly 8,000 square foot adobe house in San Antonio.

The residence, most recently listed for $ 6.9 million, was sold earlier this month to Shannon Ralston, according to property records. Ms Ralston, founder and CEO of Angel Staffing, which serves medical facilities in Texas, was not immediately available for comment.

Mansion Global was unable to determine the closing price for the ranch. Texas is one of several nondisclosure states in the United States and does not report home sale prices on government records. Listing agent Tamara Strait of Strait Luxury, also Mr Strait’s stepdaughter, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Sitting on more than 12 acres, the four-bedroom, eight-bathroom mansion was custom designed and built for Mr. Strait and his wife, Norma, by the late Arizona-based sculptor and architect Bill Tull, according to the listing. . The 69-year-old troubadour, known for hits like “All My Exes Live in Texas”, “Carrying Your Love With Me” and “Give It Away”, bought the land from the Dominion Country Club in the mid-1990s, Mansion Global previously reported. It overlooks the city and the hills of Texas.

The home features 14 custom-built fireplaces, beamed ceilings, hand-plastered walls, stained glass, yellow pine hardwood floors, and a Tull-designed copper bar, according to the listing. There’s also a master suite with two bathrooms and two walk-in closets, a safe, gym and sauna, a patio with an outdoor kitchen, an infinity pool, and a one-bedroom casita.

The ranch was first listed in November 2017 for $ 10 million, although the price was not disclosed at the time, Mansion Global reported. Listing was removed in August 2018 and was on and off the market with sporadic price drops until October, when the price was reduced to $ 6.9 million, a 31% reduction from compared to the initial request.

Representatives for Mr. Strait did not immediately return a request for comment.
