Single Family Detached
LOOKING FOR UNPRECEDENTED HISTORIC ELEGANCE MEETS URBAN NEST? YOU JUST FOUND IT! Designed by the architect of the internationally renowned St. Anthony Hotel, James Walker Flood, this graceful masterpiece makes you gasp in awe while still bespeaking 'cozy home'--all just a mile from The Pearl, walk to restaurants/shops on Main, 1.5 miles from downtown San Antonio, a skip to Alamo Heights. One of the gems of the coveted Monte Vista historic district, this beauty is fully contemporary where it counts--like the chef's kitchen, chic bathrooms, new plumbing/electrical and entertaining outdoor space--yet she exudes historic atmosphere with cornices, crystal doorknobs, original hardwood floors, high ceilings, antique fireplaces. Radiating with natural light from huge windows, the floor plan could not be better, accented with plantation shutters throughout. The glassed-in sunroom up front starts the tour with an open floor plan with large living space and library nook, leading into a centerpiece kitchen with its marble quartzite counters, gas cooking, coffee bar, 8x5 island with prep sink and wine fridge, brick-back 4x4 walk in pantry all with a view of the backyard. Office/playroom ideal for work at home. Three bedrooms down with a master suite of dreams--fireplace, dramatic ensuite bath and huge, windowed, walk-in closet so rare in historic homes. Secondary bedrooms are spacious and classic! Upstairs find a nook for a second office space for work at homes needing privacy for two. Then a second living up and a fourth bedroom or fourth living space for the adventurous. This home is unusual in its generous interior storage space plus an unfinished basement and another exterior entry closet! Enjoy the outdoors, entertaining year-round on a light-draped, 28x24 flagstone patio with fire pit, hot tub and playscape. Xeriscaped front yard dotted with palms, 34x20 four-vehicle carport behind security gate, three other gates and back alley round out a convenient, gorgeous exterior. Besides its historic birth, this doll was also remodeled in the 1940s by another famed San Antonio architect, George Willis! New electrical, new plumbing and recent HVACs make maintenance a breeze. Live a part of Alamo City history in a modern home with an historic soul. While it is an ideal home for the urbanite, it would also make a holiday home or lucrative, marketable AirBNB with its location and amenities. Come one, come all and come soon as this one will charm you the moment you see it.
