We love front porches in South Town!
The king bedroom with Sterns and Foster mattress is all about comfort.
Another master bedroom angle
1920s piano graces the front bedroom, which features a plush Indian carpet and 19th C armoire.
Bright and comfortable double bed in the rear bedroom is an adjustable and massaging bed!
Our 'farmhouse in the city' has a full kitchen with all you need.
The kitchen was originally the back porch. Note the window to the living room. Long leaf pine floors
Window to living room makes the cook feel connected!
The floor plan is open from the back 'porch room' with  sleep/sofa all the way to the livingroom.
Our front porch.
1920s clawfoot tub is original to house. With shower surround in master bathroom.
Throug the kitchen window toward the living room. A sofa slipcover
Flat screen TV and comfortable, casual seating  emphasizes a relaxed at-home feel.
The second bathroom has a modern tub and shower but still reveals plenty of character of the house!

San Antonio, Texas
You cannot find a better location for seeing San Antonio than from our charming bungalow in the heart of the city! Park the car and walk throughout our neighborhood and the downtown to really get a San Antonio experience. Parks, arts galleries and activities, restaurants, historic sites, live music, cultural venues, movie theaters, comedy clubs and night clubs, and even places to hike, bike, golf, kayak, and shoot hoops -- it's all within a walk from here! This 1880 house was our home for seven years and is still my daughter's favorite house. Artists, writers, composers, critics, and one 'Dame of the British Empire' have made it a temporary home, and the aesthetic is well suited to 'creatives'!

Built in 1880, this is the oldest house on the street. Followers of 'Fixer Upper' will enjoy the authenticity o...

Interaction with guests
I'm often out of town, since my daughter is still a kid and she lives in LA (she's on the television show 'This Is Us') so I'm playing mom a lot there. When I am in town, I'm happy to meet you, follow up, and provide information as needed. Whether I'm there or not, though, we have great neighbors and also a good housekeeper who can help you in any way you might need.

About the neighbourhood
In the heart of the city of San Antonio, beautifully located in an historic district with neighborly neighbors! Plenty of activities for families or couples. Stroll the famous River Walk, walk to the Alamo, or take a trolley to numerous downtown locations.
Getting around
This area is very walkable, but also well-served by bus, trolley, Uber and Lyft. You can drive easily in and out, but parking anywhere can be a hassle downtown, so it's easier to just park the car at the house and take a ride share service.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: San Antonio Airport: 24.0 km
