San Antonio cottage description

The Carriage House is a charming loft space with a full kitchen, dining area, queen bed and concrete floors. The bedroom features an exposed limestone rock wall. The spacious bath doubles as a dressing room and features a large shower with a rain drop shower head. Every window in the cottage has a woodland view of trees, wildlife or horses. The seating area features a unique niche in the wall that mimics a fireplace and mantel. The front porch, with comfortable chairs is a great spot for greeting the morning with a cup of coffee and pastries. Around the back of the Carriage House are several spots to sit with a glass of wine or margarita and enjoy the hill country views. Find local info at www.shophelotes.com and www.liveatfloores.com. We are just 13 miles from Fiesta Texas and 15 miles from Seaworld. Local flavor restaurants include El Chaparral, Grey Moss Inn and Scenic Loop Cafe.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1929

              About the owner: My great grandparents bought this property along with more than 500 acres so they could farm and run a dairy. Erich and Lydia Menger spent more than 30 years there. After their passing, their four children inherited the property. My grandmother, her brothers and their families continued farming but in 1973, it was decided to sell the property. As a little girl, I was devastated to lose my favorite playground. I vowed that someday I would by the ranch back. The man who bought the ranch sold off the acreage but in 2000 the seven acres that contained the original houses and sheds came on the market. With my husband's support, I WAS able to buy the ranch back! I also got the pony I'd always wanted from childhood.

              Why the Owner Chose San Antonio:
              We enjoy the wildlife, the history, the farm ways. We hope you enjoy the charming old rock house, the vantage points from which you can relax and see the mountains. Our special location allows you to enjoy Old Town Helotes with cute shops, market days, bicycling and live country music. Seaworld and Fiesta Texas are just 15 miles away. La Cantera mall offers department stores and your favorite shops. UTSA and Southwest Research are close by. And you can enjoy a day at the Riverwalk downtown and the retreat from the sounds of the city to the peaceful chirping of cicadas.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Government Canyon State Natural Area is closeby.
