Horseshoe Bay Hideaway
Rex Tillerson lists luxury Hill Country vacation home for just under $4 million
United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, a millionaire member of President Trump’s administration, and his wife have put a for sale sign on their Horseshoe Bay vacation home. Located 45 minutes northwest of Austin, it can be yours for just shy of $4 million.
The nearly 5,900-square-foot lakefront property features four bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and three half-baths. It’s at Applehead Island, an 80-acre gated community within the Horseshoe Bay Resort.
Indoor amenities of the two-story Tillerson vacation getaway include a study, wet bar, see-through fireplace between the living room and family room, formal dining room, and wine cellar. Outdoors you’ll find a gated courtyard, “summer kitchen” with a half-bath, two-slip boat dock, and waterfall.
The property, built in 1999 by Houston custom homebuilder O’Connor & Gill, is priced at $3,975,000. It is listed by Jennie Thibodeaux, a Horseshoe Bay real estate agent.
Tillerson, a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, became Trump’s secretary of state in February. He was chairman and CEO of Irving-based ExxonMobil from 2006 to 2016.
In 2015, Forbes named him one of the most powerful people in the world; his net worth is estimated at $330 million.
