Traveler Tip #1: If coming by air to San Antonio, please also price flying to Austin, Texas and going back to Austin when leaving, renting a car in Austin and driving to San Antonio. Many of my Guests who have done this have told me they save an average of $150.00 per person. So if you are traveling as a group of 8 persons you can save about $1200.00 which could be applied to cover a huge amount of the cost of my rental to you for your trip. Built in savings like that is truly a good thing!
Traveler Tip #2: When renting a car, make an early reservation and watch the prices about every ten days, if your price goes down, cancel the first reservation and make a new one. Car and truck rental prices are determined on the futures market, and has nothing to do with the day you reserve. Futures markets change often and so thus do the prices of their cars to you.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Owner Jim Smith moved to San Antonio in 2004 from Washington, DC where he spent most of his adult career as a Realtor, Home Builder, and later as a Building and Zoning Code Consultant. In the earlier years Jim spent his free time as a Special Olympics County Coordinator in Maryland (7 years) where he set up a county Special Olympics program which almost five hundred Special Olympians spread around 35 schools. Later, he spent his free time as a community activist, being the President or Board or Committee Member of scores of community interest groups including his civic association, and also served on several Washington, DC Mayoral Commissions including the Building Code Advisory Board (8 years) and the Recreational Trails Commission which decided where to spend public transportation funds for recreational trails in Washington, DC (6 years). The fast pace and hypertension of Washington, DC was too much to bear, so Jim transplanted himself to San Antonio, Texas. In San Antonio, Jim has remodeled six properties, including his home and five other rental properties that are fully furnished. The furniture and interiors were selected for each home by Jim and his sister, Jan, and the results are fine rental accommodation that are reasonable in cost. Jim's full time job is making Guests comfortable, and helping them navigate San Antonio to its many attractions and restaurants. This adventure for Jim has been anything but a progression for retirement, having 14 bathrooms, 19 bedrooms, 26 beds, six sleep sofas, six kitchens, four pools and five hot tubs keeps him totally busy 24/7. Jim is a Certified Tourist Ambassador and is extremely knowledgeable about San Antonio and its colorful history In spite of all the hard work, it is indeed a reward to finally settle down in the same city as his lovely sister, Jan, and her husband, David. Jim hopes that all of you who are estranged from your loved ones, living in remote parts, can come together soon and enjoy your loving families!
Why the Owner Chose Shearer Hills / Ridgeview, San Antonio, TX, USA:
When Jim used to visit his sister, Jan, in the early 2000's, he fell in love with the area. Jim started searching for an investment property that could be passed on to his family here in San Antonio, although at the time he lived in Washington, DC. When he came upon this unique home that has a central glass-enclosed atrium and a modernist (contemporary) interior, he could not resist the purchase of the home. Jim decided to move to San Antonio after he discovered this unique property, and now lives in the twin home next door. Later, he discovered that this home was designed by the former owner, Olga Dani, who was an interior designer from Austria. Jim learned from the former Owner that she had studied architecture in the 1930's as a student of Mies Van de Rohe, now known as the father of the Modernist period of architecture which spanned from 1929 to 1935. Ms. Olga explained to Jim that she designed this particular home to celebrate Mies Van de Rohe. Even though the home was built in the early 1960's, its stylistic period is Modernist. The Modernist Period of architecture was the bridge between Art Nuveau style of elegantly carved wood and incredible glass, and Art Deco, which had plastic as a desgin element and incorporated chrome, glass, and many elements of the Modernists. The Modernist period was a world-wide architectural movement. The unique Modernist style utilized glass, leather, and chrome as extensive design elements. Realizing this, Jim has maintained the Van de Rohe influence of this home, including furnishing the living room with knockoff furniture designed by Van de Rohe himself. This home is a beautiful, everlasting legacy of the Modernists, and a tribute to the Master Architect Mies Van de Rohe: its unique design now will be enjoyed by San Antonio visitors for the distant future. Come stay at Glass House, its totally incredible!
