Mahncke Park Mediterranean-style home heats up the market for under $250,000
If you think in pink, and have a small family, this Mahncke Park abode should not be missed.
Nestled in one of San Antonio's top neighborhoods, this single-family home built in 1935 by developer H.C. Thorman is a gem. And it's on the market for $249,500.
“Mahncke Park is a real neighborhood that connects people through its uniqueness. It welcomes home young and old, and allows the two cultures to converge with a fantastic community spirit," says Lisa D. Grove of Phyllis Browning Co. "Whether a longtime San Antonio resident or a transplant, one can make a home in Mahncke Park."
Neighborhood aside, this house is something special. Enter 520 Queen Ann Court, where symmetry and Mediterranean flair greet you upon entrance. White molding and a stone walkway provide a striking contrast to the pink-washed exterior, making the house a real head turner.
But the interior is where the real magic happens as regal arches pave the way to each room. The house boasts original wood floors, freshly painted gray walls, intricate original white molding, and a stone fireplace in the library. A crystal chandelier (one of three) imported from Europe hangs overhead, which sets the tone for old-world elegance throughout the 2,200-square-foot home.
There are two bedrooms with ample closet space, two full bathrooms with black marble floors and white fixtures, and one half-bath. The kitchen is charming with majestic ceiling tiles, black-and-white checkered floors, white cabinetry, and a breakfast area to the side. The dining room is similar to the library, with a beautiful chandelier overhead and exquisite molding.
The magic continues in the courtyard, which has a stone patio, whimsical garden statues, and just enough greenery. To top it off, this house has a detached garage and car port. We'd like to place a bid, please.
