Description

Welcome to this private oasis in the heart of Olmos Park, one of San Antonio's most coveted neighborhoods. Situated on one of the most desirable streets, this traditional rock home with a barrel tile roof, nearly a century old, exudes timeless charm and elegance. With a storied history, having been cherished by only two different families, this residence boasts an exceptional pedigree as one of the original homes constructed by H. C. Thorman in the prestigious Olmos Park Estates. As you approach the property, you'll notice the absence of any buildings behind the house, creating a tranquil retreat with the charming Sunshine Cottage property as your backdrop. The large private lot, spanning approximately .67 acres, offers country-like living right amid the city. With Alamo Heights School District and Trinity University within walking distance, the location is unparalleled. This remarkable home, spanning over 4,040 square feet, is a testament to architectural beauty. Inside, you'll find an abundance of natural light, original hardwood flooring, and stunning stained glass window features and cabinets that highlight the exquisite craftsmanship throughout. The grandeur of this residence is accentuated by high ceilings and spacious rooms, further enhanced by architectural details that tell a unique story. The main floor features a formal living area, a powder room, and two fireplaces, one wood-burning and the other gas, ensuring warmth and ambiance. For those who love to cook, the kitchen has been thoughtfully remodeled and includes a Thermador range. The home's basement offers additional storage space, and a small office carpeted but with tile underneath, awaits your creative touch. Upstairs, the primary bedroom is accompanied by a luxurious bath, a spacious walk-in closet, and a dedicated study, perfect for remote work or personal reflection. Two additional bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom. A cedar closet, an additional washroom, and the laundry room complete the upper level. Outside, the expansive backyard boasts a large pool and spa, making it a perfect retreat for relaxation and entertainment. There's also ample space to add a sports court, pickleball, or tennis court for active outdoor living. For added convenience, there are gated spacious parking in the back, a carport for covered parking, and a sound system in the kitchen, den, and outdoor areas. In this home that marries history with modern convenience, you'll find a unique blend of elegance, space, and character. With four AC units, a gas outdoor lighting system, and a multitude of open spaces, you'll discover that this Olmos Park estate offers an unmatched opportunity to own a piece of San Antonio's history in a serene, city-centered setting. Don't miss your chance to call this extraordinary residence your own.
