San Antonio poet and former Trinity Press director Barbara Ras is selling this colorful 1930s home

In early 2017, internationally known poet Barbara Ras retired as founding director of Trinity University Press, a position she'd held since 2002.

Now, as the next chapter of her life, the Walt Whitman Award-winning scribe is relocating from San Antonio to Colorado and putting this vibrant 1930 home in the Alta Vista neighborhood up for sale, according to the property's listing agent. It's on the market for $410,000.

In contrast to many recently flipped homes in the north-of-downtown neighborhood, Ras clearly respected two-story dwelling's original charm during renovations. Many of its century-old architectural details remain in place, including elegant pillars and glass-fronted book cases separating the living and dining rooms.

The four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home's bright and airy kitchen also keeps its Old San Antonio charm thanks to black and white tile counters, glass drawer pulls and yet more glass-fronted cabinets.

This home is listed by Debra Maltz with Kuper Sotheby's International Realty.
