One of the great things about San Antonio is that it’s filled with historic properties boasting tons of charm. Instead of knocking down houses in favor of cookie-cutter homes, we embrace our heritage by renovating and modifying, keeping a home’s unique character intact.
For this real estate roundup, we looked at single-family historic homes, all priced under $400,000, in some of San Antonio’s hottest neighborhoods.
324 Leigh St.
This two-bedroom home is deceiving — in a good way. There are 1,190 square feet in the main house, as well as two separate spaces that can be used as workshops or offices, adding 504 square feet to the property. One of the larger lots in the historic Lavaca District neighborhood, the renovated abode from 1910 features front and back porches, hardwood floors, 13-foot ceilings, and crown molding. This unique home is located south of downtown with proximity to parks, restaurants, and the River Walk. Recently reduced to $388,000, 324 Leigh St. is listed with Trudy Edwards of Keller Williams.
221 Carolina St.
Also located near downtown in San Antonio’s Lavaca District, 221 Carolina St. is listed with Lonna Atkinson of Re/Max for $340,000. The property has four bedrooms and two full bathrooms, with a total of 1,966 square feet. The home was built in 1905 but was recently updated with a brand-new A/C system, foundation, plumbing, and electric. Beautiful tile work is highlighted in both the kitchen and bathrooms, while warm wood floors create a cozy interior. A large yard out back reveals an apartment garage that needs a little love, but could be used as an office, studio, or extra room for rent.
221 Hermine Blvd.
Situated in the attractive Olmos Park area, this home is surrounded by greenery on its large double lot. With a covered brick paver patio and pergola, potential buyers will enjoy over one-third of an acre at this location. The home itself is 1,705 square feet featuring an all rock exterior, three beds, and two full baths. Original hardwood floors and French doors fill this 1940s abode with personality. 221 Hermine Blvd. is listed with Susanne Gentry with Re/Max, and is on the market for $315,000.
151 Devonshire Dr.
Listed at $395,000, 151 Devonshire Dr. is an adorable dwelling within the desirable Terrell Heights neighborhood. It’s a recently renovated home on a coveted corner lot boasting 2,100 square feet of space. There are three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, two living areas, a fireplace, and hardwood floors. The kitchen is the perfect place to entertain, with an island and bar top that overlooks the living room. The master bathroom has a separate tub and shower with a double vanity and large walk-in closet. Originally built in 1949, this property is listed with Gina Candelario of Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty.
247 Keller St.
This bright and cheerful home was built in 1920. The large front porch offers a farmhouse feel while the backyard offers an expansive oasis in the middle of the city. The home is 1,394 square feet with three beds and two baths. The main living areas are open for a nice flow, and the entire home is outfitted with plenty of windows to allow natural lighting to flood the space. 247 Keller St. is on the market with Re/Max's Leah Steidel for $264,900, the least expensive on the list.
