Tucked away on the quiet Alamo Heights street of Penny Lane is a three-level structure that's bright white, both inside and out. So much so, we could call the mansion, which just went on the market for $2.2 million, a study in white.
We're not sure whether one of the sellers' former profession has something to do with the palette choice, which one could call "apron white." After all, it's owned by power couple Cooper Boddy, founder of Cooper's Meat Market — although he's now a real estate investor and broker — and real estate lawyer Elizabeth Boddy.
Whatever the reason for the blank canvas approach, it does make a nice backdrop for contrasting décor and design. A kitchen island of white marble and a wall of the same material behind the stove are set off by black custom cabinets, for example.
The architectural study in white continues through the bedrooms and the master bath with occasional splashes of color such as a wall of tropical green leaf fronds dominating one of the three full bathrooms. The wet bar features gold fixtures, a white wall with a dash of muted color with gleaming black, lacquered cabinets. Even the pool is surrounded by white tile.
A rooftop deck gives 360-degree views around the property, which is set on a third of an acre.
