This incredible single family home in the Monte Vista Historical District must be seen to fully appreciate the extent of the lavish remodel and extension in 2017 that transformed a craftsman duplex into a beautiful, historic bungalow with a modern twist. The architect redesign of the duplex was approved by the Office of Historic Preservation creating a beautifully modern home while preserving its historical character. Changes included turning one side of the duplex into large common room with kitchen, adding a 357 square foot en-suite master with a luxurious large bathroom, large custom walk-in closet and a private entrance to back deck as well as a complete renovation of all the other rooms. The extensive use of marble throughout the kitchen and two full baths is only part of the extravagant renewal of this home. The kitchen is tiled and has custom cabinets, a pantry with pullout shelves and a large island with a contemporary marble lookalike black and white granite top. The high-end stainless steel Bosch appliances include a gas range and an under-the-counter microwave. The dry walls were completely re-built and have a level 5 finish. Two of the rooms have beautifully refinished fireplaces with deep mantles. The original wooden floors were completely refinished and matched throughout the house. The foundation, electrical and plumbing systems were renovated at the time of the remodel and a new HVAC system was added. The 10-foot ceilings, many windows and LED lights throughout make for a light airy feel. The two unique brass/candle design pendants in the kitchen/dining room add to the historical feel of the home. The rear of the property includes a large covered carport with accessible storage space above and a custom shed. Gutters with rain barrels and rain chains, a water softening system and under sink water filtration system have all been added in the last 3 years. This property is located within walking distance of Trinity University, Brackenridge Park and the zoo and is a mile from The Pearl, 1 1/2 miles from the Botanical Gardens and about 2 1/2 miles from The Quarry Center providing easy access to some of San Antonio's best restaurants and shops. An added bonus for this home is that the Historic Site Property Tax Exemption is current through 2028 affording the home owner substantial savings on property tax. The home is eligible to display three historical property plaques including the Monte Vista Historical Association plaque, the City of San Antonio Historic Structure plaque and the National Register of Historic Places plaque.
