The lowdown: You read that right: a castle. This is a rare and unique opportunity to purchase a historic castle that was once a private residence and is currently used as a wedding and events venue. The limestone structure is built in Richardson Romanesque Revival architecture, offering 16 rooms and nine fireplaces throughout four stories, in addition to a brick carriage house with apartment living quarters.
Situated on one lush, treed acre at the periphery of San Antonio's ongoing rejuvenation near Broadway, the castle is just over a half-mile to The Pearl and northeast of downtown. The property was uniquely designed by renowned British architect Alfred Giles in 1894. Grand, elegant and inviting, the event venue has eight fully accommodated bedrooms for overnight guests furnished with tasteful antiques.
There's even an opportunity to turn the first level into a cafe or fine dining establishment to go along with the multiple public spaces: foyer, grand hall, cozy inglenook, front parlor, library, music room, dining room, and butler's pantry with prep kitchen. The oversized veranda patios are adorned with wood beams and limestone balustrades, and along with the lush lawn have served beautifully as dining and entertainment outdoor spaces
This enchanting building is only steps away from popular coffee bars, boutique shops, and local restaurants, with the Riverwalk less than one mile down the road and The Alamo only three miles away.
