Location: San Antonio, Texas
This 1891 brick Victorian is located in San Antonio’s fashionable King William Historic District, the state’s first district to be zoned as such. Measuring nearly 4,000 square feet with five bedrooms and six baths, the charming residence features period details like elegant woodwork on the staircase, window, and door frames, paneling in the dining room, and hardwood floors.
A covered porch leads to the entrance, where a stained-glass window lights up the foyer, which then leads to a formal sitting and dining room. Though the house appears to have been updated—and needs further updates particularly in the ’70s-style kitchen—the stateliness of its scale and generously-proportioned layout feel original.
Tall windows and high ceilings (beamed on the first floor) provide plenty of light, while a large backyard with garden patio and guesthouse, and a second-floor balcony allow for outdoor living. The property also includes a full basement. Located at 231 Adams Street, the home is listed for $699,900. Take a look.
