This San Antonio mansion for sale has copper animal sculptures in the backyard and a carousel bathroom

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.
