Built in 1995, the estate was designed by luxury home builder Roberto Kenigstein on a secluded 0.85 acre lot in the Elm Creek neighborhood. Garza has lived there since 2013, shortly after marrying Eloise Atkinson Garza, records show.

The four-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bathroom home has high ceilings, columns and tall windows that overlook the tree-dotted grounds and pool, according to the listing. There is a chef’s kitchen with professional grade appliances and a family room with a fireplace.

A spiral staircase leads to the second floor of the house. The master suite enjoys its own wing with a private library, exercise room and two full bathrooms.

Garza served as ambassador to Mexico from 2002 to 2009 and is considered a key supporter of Merida’s historic initiative to address critical regional security issues. In 2009, Mexico awarded him the Águila Azteca, the highest honor given to foreigners.

Garza is now an attorney in the Mexico City office of White & Case LLP, one of the world’s leading law firms. His wife is a dermatologist in San Antonio.
