There's no shortage of elegantly appointed homes in the San Antonio area. What's rarer is to find one that's both beautiful and bears unique and playful touches of character.
A 5,000-square-foot home recently listed for $1.4 million in the North Side's Marymont subdivision includes some one-of-a-kind touches, which were added by the couple that built it in 1987.
First, copper statues of animals including a giraffe and a hippo are stationed in the lush greenery of the backyard and gaze at its pool. Second, one of its bathrooms is themed to look like a carousel, complete with an ornate vaulted ceiling, fixtures shaped like cherubs and electric candelabras, according to the property's listing agent.
Beyond those whimsical elements, the six-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath home has plenty of more conventional touches of elegance including a balcony overseeing its backyard oasis, a wood-paneled study, a wine cellar and fancy architectural details including multiple arched doorways.
This home is brokered by Michael Chue
with Keller Williams Heritage.
