San Antonio house description


Historic 19th century home in the heart of downtown San Antonio is fully furnished and sleep 8. 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, complete kitchen and laundry room as well as living and dining areas. Casual but sophisticated furnishings accent your home away from home.This lovingly-restored bungalow was once our family home, and we still live in this great downtown neighborhood. We restored it to preserve its historic nature while modernizing it enough for comfort.

Walk to the Alamo, Convention Center, Fiesta, River Walk, Alamodome. Swimming, parks, golf, tennis, movie theater, shopping all nearby. View the Hemisfair Tower from the outdoor deck. Located on a quiet side street, but steps away from nightlife and restaurants, including the famous Rosario's restaurant. Three of Texas Monthly's '50 best Mexican restaurants' are located in the neighborhood, which is the center of nightlife for 'real' San Antonio. This is not a touristic neighborhood, although we are on the fringe of the hotel zone and walking distance of practically everything.

Bikes are available at the 'bike share' just two blocks away to enjoy San Antonio or the Mission Trails bike trail nearby. A neighborhood membership pool and health club takes short term memberships for a small fee ($50 at this time), so you can hang out at the pool or get some exercise. The public pool is 1 mile away in a park with a climbing wall, grills, basketball courts, and more, along the River Walk Mission Reach and near the golf course.

The house has a 20' x 12' deck off the kitchen under the spreading pecan tree. There is a side yard, but no true 'back' yard. Guests enjoy cooking out or serving at the table on the deck, which is also a great place for a morning cup of coffee. Resident squirrels chase each other around the tree and native birds are frequent visitors.

The owner lives nearby and can share information about the neighborhood or assist with any concerns. Rent by the day, week or month.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: I'm a locally-known writer and 'newby' visual artist, an older single mom, active in this community and devoted to my neighborhood and my daughter. We love it here. It's everything that's best about San Antonio. I transplanted from Chicago after a stint in NYC and college back east, so this Texas thing took adjusting, but now it is most definitely home.

                  Why the Owner Chose San Antonio:
                  This was our home and it's the greatest neighborhood in San Antonio, the only place in town I would want to live. We moved nearby to start a new renovation, got trapped in the economic downturn and couldn't sell quickly -- so I thought 'why sell? I'll never be able to buy this house again!' So I started renting it out and never looked back.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The neighborhood. Look it up online: King William/Southtown.
