Location: San Antonio, Texas
Known as the Alamo House, this unique residence in San Antonio, Texas, was originally designed in 1928 and got a redesign by Phil Lloyd Shoop in the ’50s, making it a kind of Midcentury Frankenstein of a home—but it works.
Located in the historic Monticello neighborhood, the 2,778-square-footer boasts an incredible facade of stone and wood (and a groovy red front door), and these materials make up some of the interiors as well.
Wood paneling and Japanese shoji screens characterize the fireplaced living room and dining room. In what appears to be a step-down addition is a great room with vaulted and beamed ceilings, massive stone fireplace and terrazzo floors.
As for private quarters, there are three bedrooms and bathrooms, while a period kitchen with vintage appliances up the midcentury factor. A wet bar, workshop, covered patio, and spacious backyard round out the property.
With a new decorating scheme, this home, located at 2210 West Gramercy Place, and offered at $385,000, could really come alive.
