Look Inside Ted Cruz’s $2 Million Texas Mansion

By CM Chaney · July 2, 2024

Ted Cruz, the Republican U.S. Senator from Texas, has called Houston home since 2011 when he purchased a residence in the city's affluent River Oaks neighborhood. The property, acquired for $1.5 million, has appreciated significantly over the years and is now estimated to be worth over $2 million.

Located in one of Houston's most prestigious areas, Cruz's home reflects his rise in political prominence. The senator, known for his conservative stance and occasional controversies, has used this residence as a base while serving in Washington D.C. and during his 2016 presidential campaign.

The property's increasing value mirrors the growth of Houston's real estate market and the desirability of the River Oaks area. While details about the home's specific features are limited, its location and price point suggest a residence befitting a high-profile political figure in Texas's largest city.  Jay Janner / American-Statesman / USA TODAY NETWORK /
