This All-Rock Home for Sale in Alamo Heights Looks Like a Gingerbread House

Folks in the real estate business would probably say the exterior of this Alamo Heights home possesses a certain "Old World charm." But to our untrained eye, it's got more of a gingerbread house feel.

All someone needs to do is slather white frosting on a the roof and sprinkle on some gumdrops to complete the mental picture.

While the covered porch and high-peaked roof evoke another architectural era — or holiday confectionery — the inside of this 1937 home feels plenty modern. Archways between the brightly lit rooms open up the floor plan, and the family room even includes a wet bar and wicked-cool media center.

Out back, a large patio gives way to a swimming pool and a detached artist's studio. Just add more frosting and some candy canes to keep the mental image going.

This home is listed by Liz Chiego with Phyllis Browning Co.
