How would you like to live on an exotic animal ranch in the heart of the Hill Country? If you have $7.5 million, John Paul DeJoria’s waterfront estate could be yours.
Founder of Patrón Tequila and John Paul Mitchell Systems, DeJoria’s Dripping Springs ranch is appropriately named “Patrón de Paz” and includes a herd of over 120 African exotic animals. Just think of all those safari costs you’ll save with this home!
The self-made billionaire’s 96-acre estate runs along 2,600 feet of Fitzhugh Creek. The sprawling land contains a stocked pond, pecan orchard, and large trees throughout. Additionally, there’s a brand-new 2,700-square-foot underground shelter … you know, in case the animals go rogue.
The main house is 7,540 square feet of gorgeous limestone with four bedrooms and six bathrooms. The entrance opens to an outdoor courtyard anchored with a fountain. Once inside, you’ll see wood-beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, stone walls, and big windows that bring in the stunning Hill Country scenery and creek-side views.
Outside is a living area and kitchen with a pool and hot tub that overlooks the creek. Additionally, there are two barns with guest residences attached. While all the home furnishings on the property are included in the listing, DeJoria’s seven custom-built motorcycles are not.
This estate may not be DeJoria’s much longer, but he’ll still hold onto his Austin home in addition to properties in Malibu, California; Las Vegas; New York; Hawaii; Aspen, Colorado; among others.
Listed with Dave Murray of DMTX Realty and Greg Sellers of Horizon Realty, the home is out-of-reach for most. But we still like fantasizing about sitting on the back patio of Patrón de Paz, margarita in hand.
