This quirky rock cottage for sale in San Antonio's Monte Vista area belongs in a fairy tale

Strolling up the flower-lined driveway of this Monte Vista cottage to its tiny gate and colorful stone porch might have visitors looking around for one of Snow White’s seven diminutive companions. Or maybe a princess in hiding.

The two-bedroom, two-bath home is set deep into a lot partly hidden by small trees and palms, a theme that continues in the backyard around pathways and a stone patio.

Inside the $510,000 house, the gleaming hardwood floors, an elegant chandelier and a whimsical bas-relief frieze over the fireplace add a timeless quality.

A study or sitting room off the master bedroom of the 101-year-old property appears well suited for the reading the works of the Brothers Grimm, while its up-to-date kitchen and master bath seem like amenities Goldilocks would find just right.

This home is listed by Ann Van Pelt with the Phyllis Browning Company.
