This Spanish-style San Antonio home comes with a hidden backyard oasis

Sometimes homes that look fairly nice from the front prove even more breathtaking inside or around back. Take for example this two-story Spanish-style manor in Terrell Hills recently listed for almost $2.6 million.

The property looks great from the front: lush tropical landscaping, a tile roof and rock wall with a wrought iron gate. But that facade offers no clue that the home's lower level is "centered on a huge secluded veranda [and] elegant pool," as the property listing puts it.

The first-floor living areas and master suite open up onto a rectangular pool fed by a pair of fountains and bordered by more lush landscaping. An expansive tile patio features a shaded sitting area with a massive stone fireplace embellished with both large display niches and a massive flat-screen TV.

Talk about a backyard hideaway.

Meanwhile, the 5,700-square foot home's colorful interior includes five bedrooms and five and half baths and large living and dining areas made all the more dramatic by high ceilings and old-world pillars and archways. The media room upstairs opens out onto its own covered veranda overlooking the secluded oasis below.

This home is listed by Ann L. Van Pelt with Phyllis Browning Co.
