Set on the highest point of esteemed Terrell Hills, this beautiful Spanish Revival estate was built in 1929 by Carleton Adams. A sweeping entry, grand living and dining areas, and expansive outdoor patio are reminiscent of a bygone era filled with gracious entertaining. Upstairs, three light-filled bedroom suites with attached living spaces and updated bathrooms feature sweeping views of the sprawling 1.23-acre grounds and the city below. A cozy study, Dutch-door wet bar, below grade wine cellar, and 477 square foot casita are also not to be overlooked. Beautiful, original details are apparent throughout the home including hand-carved mouldings, stone fireplace, stained glass windows, and marble and wood floors. Stylistically appropriate cosmetic updates have been made by the current owners including a Ludowici tile roof, copper gutters downspouts and window screens. The functionality of this historic home is ensured for it's next century with CAT 5 & 6 wiring, updated plumbing and HVAC units, a water well for irrigation, and an engineered foundation. The large lot size allows ample opportunity for a property expansion, swimming pool, or tennis court. Within the Alamo Heights School district, and the close proximity of this property to downtown San Antonio and the airport, the location is ideal.
