George Strait's mansion has been on the market for almost three years. (Phyllis Browning Company)

Known as the "King of Country," Austin City Limits 2021 Festival headliner George Strait is selling his enormous San Antonio castle. So if you've got $7.5 million to spare and have ever wanted to get out of Austin, now is your moment.

The Santa Fe-style compound sits on 12.2 private acres in the elite Dominion enclave and was originally listed for a steep $10 million in 2018, dropping by just over a million in 2019 and was listed again for 75% of the original price in February.

With 7,925 square feet to roam through, the home has plenty of room for guests with four bedrooms, six bathrooms and two half bathrooms. For the in-laws, a separate casita offers a completely separate living experience. Expect nothing less than luxury from King George's former abode because the mansion is packed with amenities, art pieces and breathtaking views.

Inside the home's smooth stucco walls and rounded trimmings, all thought up by Arizona designer Bill Tull, you'll feel downright southwestern while admiring that sandy-colored cabinetry, saguaro cactus shutters and abode framework.

Perfect for entertaining, two of the home's 14 hand-sculpted fireplaces will greet you before you make your way to the wide-open outdoor patio and kitchen, and mosaic infinity pool and spa, which is of course complete with a sauna. A quick jaunt upstairs and you can gaze over a view of the luscious Hill Country and downtown San Antonio.

There's always something new to see in the house—the stained glass, murals, an antique Western safe, outdoor paved trails and a fitting stage for live music.

The listing is held by Tamara Strait with Phyllis Browning Co., Strait's daughter in-law, who married son Bubba Strait in 2021. The home has been in the Strait family since 1995.
