This historic San Antonio area-home comes with an 1830s log cabin on the property

A property in the town of Comfort, some 40 minutes northwest of San Antonio, has been listed for just shy of $1.9 million — and it includes not one, but three, historic structures.

A four-bedroom, two-bath main residence facing the street was completed in 1888 by two of Comfort's most prominent early settlers, Peter and Mary Ingenhuett, as an upgrade to the 600-square-foot pioneer homestead they built on the plot in 1868, according to the property listing.

The original homestead still stands on the lot, as does an 1830s-era log cabin moved from Kentucky and reassembled at the location, the listing notes. A two-car carport and workshop later built on the property was designed after the original barn.

According to the sales listing, the compound's lack of zoning means it could be someone's residence — or transformed into retail space, a restaurant, a boutique hotel or, you guessed it, a bed and breakfast.

This home is listed by Marilyn Schwethelm with Coldwell Banker D'Ann Harper.
