Description

Built in 1927 and designated a landmark home when the area of Bluebonnet Hills was being developed in Alamo Heights, it was registered with the state of Texas under the name La Casa del Sol. The historic and architecturally distinctive home is a rare gem. Constructed of native limestone and featuring an Italian terra cotta tile roof, it sits on a spacious corner lot with heritage oak trees dotting the landscape. Artfully trained ivy defines the exterior walls, lending to its beauty and charm. The attractive front drive offers convenience, privacy and ample off street parking. On approach to the front entrance, a boxwood knot garden adds interest and appeal to the home. This extraordinary property is European in style, architectural elements of which can be found throughout fine old homes in France, England, Italy and Spain. Built in an era of fine craftsmanship and hand-hewn details, it was designed by the late San Antonio architect, John Walker, as a home for himself. The thick plaster interior walls, circular turret foyer with a hand-painted ceiling mural, original light fixtures, gliding staircase, as well as the spectacular stone staircase off of the Saltillo tile courtyard near the swimming pool outside are all distinctive features. The main house has four upstairs bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and a large sitting room/sun porch with French doors, overlooking a balcony backyard, pool area, and roof garden. Downstairs is a large living room with wood burning fireplace, above which is an exquisitely plastered relief design of tropical birds, a hexagonally shaped solarium with floor to ceiling windows and plaster niches, a garden room, a dining room, breakfast room, library, kitchen, laundry room and a bathroom with shower. An addition built in 1980 by the current owners is the separate carriage house/double garage that is connected to the main house by a covered breezeway. Off the outside loggia, defined by Cantera stone columns, is an additional room and bathroom for office/studio/or changing room to access the pool. The charming carriage house apartment, featured in Southern Living Magazine years ago, has wide plank pine floors, a wood burning fireplace, cathedral ceiling with rough-hewn beams, open floorplan with large living/kitchen, adjacent to the bedroom, bathroom, and walk-in closet. A wall of French doors opens onto large deck with views of trees, pool and even a view of downtown San Antonio. There is a sprinkler system on the property. This home has been lovingly cared for and enjoyed over many years by the three families who have owned it. The current owners, who have lived in the home for almost fifty years recently downsized to a smaller home in the same neighborhood. Bluebonnet Hills is a quintessential neighborhood with sidewalks where generations of children have grown up and chosen to move back to the neighborhood of their youth. This neighborhood is a highly sought after location. It has houses of different sizes, people of all ages. There is a friendly neighborhood feeling among the residents. Located in the village of Alamo Heights, near the McNay Art Museum, within walking distance are excellent Alamo Heights Schools, Sunset Ridge Shopping Center, and many fine restaurants. Four separate HVAC units provide economy for this home (upstairs, downstairs, carriage house, office). Original hardwood floors can be seen throughout, along with original tile floors in the garden room and solarium downstairs. Total square footage: approximately 5400 square feet.
