This Spanish-Style Home for Sale Has the Coolest Backyard in San Antonio

Some of us dream of having a sprawling backyard with lush gardens and a perfectly manicured lawn. Others — those of us with minimal time and patience for yard work — are just after a spot to relax and unwind.

This $899,000 property in Alamo Heights has the latter. And, boy, does it ever. Inspired on a trip to the Turkish Riviera (at least according to the real estate agent), the current owners transformed the backyard into a relaxing Mediterranean oasis.

Stucco and limestone walls give the enclave a private and serene feel, while a wooden deck and two separate brick patios offer plenty of space for meditating, dining al fresco or throwing a log or two into a fire pit. And did we mention there's minimal grass to mow?

We'd be remiss if we didn't mention that the rest of the four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath is pretty cool too. From the spacious modern kitchen to the original oak floors, there's plenty to enjoy — assuming you can tear yourself away from the chill backyard vibes.
