Property description

This cozy family-friendly private home is an 8 minute walk to the Alamo! Other downtown area attractions in close proximity include the San Antonio Riverwalk, Tobin Center, The Majestic, Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, Sunset Station, and the Alamodome.

Known as the Engelmann-Muench House, this cottage was built in 1858 by Martin Engelmann, a wealthy German immigrant. The caliche block vernacular double house sits on a site which was once part of the Alamo farmlands. The structure is a good example of a once-common San Antonio house type and features original built-in end chimneys.
