Country music star George Strait has finally found a buyer for his San Antonio mansion after a series of price cuts.

The home at 10 Davenport Lane dwells in the gated community of the Dominion Country Club in the San Antonio foothills. Texas doesn’t publicly disclose selling prices, but its last listing was in October for $6.9 million. The buyer was Shannon Ralson, owner of a San Antonio medical staffing company Angel Staffing Inc.

The 7,295-square-foot Santa Fe-inspired house, on a 12.2-acre property, was first put on the market for $10 million in 2017. After radio silence from buyers, the mansion was back on the market in 2019 with a list price of $8.9 million.

In 2020, the Bexar Appraisal District valued the property at $4.2 million. It was re-listed a year ago for $7.5 million by George Strait’s daughter-in-law, Concierge Realtor Tamara Strait.

“Yes, the house is taste-specific,” Tamara Strait told PaperCity Magazine at the time of the re-listing. “But when you see it with transitional furniture you understand how it can feel completely different.” Ralson, the buyer, is a long-time San Antonian who has been running her company in the historical Texas city for more than 20 years.

The 69-year-old troubadour—known for hits like “All My Exes Live in Texas” and “Carrying Your Love With Me” built the home with architect Bill Tull back in the 1990s and moved his wife Norma and son Bubba into the custom-made mansion in 1997. In addition to its four bedrooms, six full baths and two partial baths, the house is complete with 14 hand-sculpted fireplaces, a primary bedroom with two walk-in closets, a safe room, a gym and sauna, and an infinity pool overlooking the San Antonio skyline.
