About the owner: We are retired and enjoy spending time with our grand kids and being part of the South Texas and San Antonio adventure. We live on site so take special interest in making our house and the Cottage a beautiful place to live and enjoy.
Why the Owner Chose San Antonio:
We lived in Europe for many years and fell in love the the Mediterranean architecture; ancient stone and tile; bright colors of bougainvillea and sunshine. This house in San Antonio makes us feel right at home in Tuscany; close to vineyards of the Texas wine country; the Texas hills and the Gulf of Mexico. We have furnished the Cottage with antiques collected in Europe to add to the old world feel of the house.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Cottage is uniquely situated close to everything San Antonio has to offer, only 5 minutes from downtown, the Alamo and the fun on the River Walk. It's close to golf courses, zoo, botanical gardens and museums. There is something to do everyday in the neighborhood, shaded walks through the Monte Vista Historic District and impromptu neighborhood block parties.
