A baller property
A 53-acre estate in Boerne owned by former San Antonio Spurs player Tony Parker — complete with a waterpark that almost rivals what you’d find at SeaWorld San Antonio — recently hit the market for $19.5 million.
The property, at 9 Rue Parker, features 10 bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and four half-bathrooms. It sits within Anaqua Springs Ranch, which is gated. The six-bedroom main house and four-bedroom guest apartment also are gated and include a guardhouse.
To be sure, the interior is impressive. Among the highlights are a temperature-controlled wine room with space for up to 1,500 bottles, a home theater with stadium seating, two home offices, and a more than 5,900-square-foot gym.
“Voluminous living spaces are masterfully designed for entertaining yet equally suited for everyday moments,” the listing says.
It’s the exterior, however, that might really wow residents and visitors alike. Outdoors, you’ll come across a tennis court, a sand volleyball court, a greenhouse, an herb garden, a fruit orchard, and a tortoise enclosure. And then there’s arguably the star attraction: a massive waterpark with slides, lazy rivers, grottos, and a diving platform.
Binkan Cinaroglu of Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing, which is in the Hill Country about 30 miles northwest of San Antonio.
Parker, who spent 17 of his 18 NBA seasons with the Spurs, once shared the estate with how now ex-wife, actress Eva Longoria. He retired from the NBA in 2019. Parker now owns ASVEL, a professional men’s and women’s basketball team in France.
