A Trinity prof is selling this 1929 San Antonio cottage after being hired as provost at another college

The listing for a San Antonio house now on the market touts the good schools nearby for the kiddos.

The interesting twist here is that it's just down the road from another lauded school, Trinity University, where the home's co-owner, Michael Soto, was a professor and associate vice president of academic affairs. Soto is also the author of six books on 20th century American literature and cultural history.

Sotos's former home is now on the sales block for $364,000 after he announced in December that he's heading to Pittsburgh to serve as provost and senior VP for Point Park University. Soto’s wife is Celina Peña, a long-time executive at San Antonio non-profits including small-business lender LiftFund.

The West Kings Highway home has a whimsical roofline at the entrance giving it the look of a quaint cottage, but there’s plenty of space with four bedrooms and lots of shelf space for American literature.

Built in 1929, everything is updated and is surrounded by amenities, such as a swimming pool, Woodlawn Lake Park and the Deco District, all without going outside Loop 410.

This home is listed by Anel Flores with A&N Realty.
