Country Music Great George Strait Chops the Price of His Texas Hill Country Hacienda

George Strait, dubbed "the King of Country," reduced the asking price of his Texas estate to $6.9 million last week, saving more than $3 million.

According to listing agent Tamara Strait of Sotheby's International Realty, the roughly 8,000-square-foot adobe home on more than 12 acres in San Antonio was planned and custom-built for the country music superstar by the late artist and architect Bill Tull of Arizona. 

It first appeared on the market in May 2018 for $10 million, but the price was not disclosed at the time, according to Mansion Global.

The listing was deleted in August 2018, and it remained on and off the market with periodic price decreases until February, when it was last listed for $7.5 million. 

Mr. Strait, the 69-year-old troubadour famed for singles such as "All My Exes Live in Texas," "Carrying Your Love With Me," and "Give It Away," purchased property at the Dominion Country Club in the mid-1990s, according to Mansion Global. 

He and his wife, Norma, interviewed numerous architects before selecting Tull to build a three-bedroom main home and a casita with imported adobe. 

 Mansion Global reports that the architect relocated his team from Scottsdale, Arizona, to San Antonio for two years to complete the project. Tull died in the year 2000.

According to the description, other facilities include a primary bedroom suite with two bathrooms and two walk-in closets, a safe room, a gym and sauna, and an outdoor kitchen on the patio.
