At $10.5 million, 26 Seewald Road is the highest-valued listing currently in the San Antonio market.
The property, which spans 310 acres, includes a 3,000-square-foot home perched atop a hill overlooking the countryside between Boerne and Comfort.
“The unique part about the house is that the original owners built an asphalt road that goes all the way up the side of the hill, and right before it gets to the house it narrows down and you can see for miles and miles and miles,” said Dana Phillips, real estate agent and broker associate with Phillips and Associates Realty, the firm representing the seller.

The original owner’s estate still owns the home, Phillips said. “They weren’t farmers or developers.They just wanted to enjoy the beautiful countryside,” she explained.
The home, which was built in 2003, includes wood floors throughout, a walk-out basement, and a 360-degree porch wrapping around the first floor. It features five bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Since the property was listed 3-4 months ago, Phillips said they have been consistently receiving offers.

“One of the potential buyers wanted to turn the house into a wedding venue because of how beautiful the views are,” she said.
There are currently some cattle on the property, and flora and fauna include including oak, pecan and mesquite trees, as well as whitetail deer, wild turkeys and rabbits.
“The home itself has almost 7 acres that are fenced off, so cattle and other animals the new owners might want to keep don’t go onto the main property,” Phillips said.
“Even though it’s on a hill, the backyard is fairly flat,” Phillips said, and is well-landscaped and accessible. She said it even includes a large, old-timey outdoor spit with a rotary arm.
It even includes what Phillips calls a “seasonal pond” that appears after bouts of rainfall.
“The current owners would love somebody to buy it as their homestead, but it’s welcome to everybody,” she said.
