Anaqua Springs luxury home where three died is listed for sale
The luxury home where a mother and her two daughters were shot to death almost five months ago has been listed for sale at a price less than its appraised value.
The residence in the gated Anaqua Springs Ranch subdivision near Leon Springs drew widespread attention when the bodies of hairstylist Nichol Leila Olsen, 37, and her two daughters, Alexa Denice Montez, 16, and London Sophia Bribiescas, 10, were found there Jan. 10.
The four-bedroom house at 11314 Anaqua Springs was listed for sale Thursday morning at a price of $975,000. That’s about $54,000 less than its 2019 appraised value of $1,028,790, Bexar County Appraisal District records show.
“This home is the perfect blend of contemporary modern and rustic elegance,” states the real estate listing posted on Realtor.com. “Superior craftsmanship is evidenced by every detail inside and out with a thoughtful flow that lends itself to entertaining as well as comfort.
“Inside the gated front entry is an exquisite courtyard complete with (a) walk-in pool and spa, outdoor kitchen, waterfall and elegant lighting so you can enjoy it day or night.”
The house spans 4,500 square feet and sits on a 2.7-acre lot.

Realtor Adam Strauss of Summit Real Estate, who listed the property for sale, did not respond to a call and a text message from the San Antonio Express-News seeking comment.
The house is owned by Olsen’s boyfriend, Charles Edward Wheeler, 31, who called 911 on the morning of Jan. 10 to report finding Olsen and her daughters dead. The mother and daughters were lying close together in an upstairs hallway. A handgun was found near Olsen’s body.
Within days, Olsen’s death was ruled a suicide by the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office. Her daughters’ deaths were ruled homicides. The shootings remain under investigation by the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI.
Olsen and her daughters had been living with Wheeler at his house for about a year and a half.
Sheriff Javier Salazar has said Wheeler is a “person of interest” in the case and noted Wheeler has cooperated throughout the investigation.

Wheeler told investigators he’d left his residence about 10 p.m. the night before the shootings after he argued with Olsen. He said he spent the night at a relative’s house before returning home the next morning.
Olsen’s friends and family have rejected any possibility that she could have harmed herself or her children.
Wheeler had no comment Thursday evening about his house being listed for sale. One of his attorneys, Therese Huntzinger, also declined comment.
