San Antonio in itself is a city full of rich history. Throughout the past 200 years, there have been many generations stake claim here. With each of those generations and eras comes different styles of Homes. From the Edwardian and Victorian era to the English Stone Cottages to the Spanish Casitas. San Antonio offers all of these styles of homes for sale throughout all the eras.
There is something special about having a historic home. The architecture and building methods were completely different then what they are today. The rooms were very large with lots of windows, elaborate crown molding, and claw feet tubs in the bathrooms. Historic homes have this special essence and flair unlike a newly built home.
English stone cottages are located throughout the Olmos Park and Olmos Park Terrace area and were built from 1900-1940’s. The Victorian and Edwardian homes are prominent in the Monte Vista, Beacon Hill, Tobin Hill, and a few in Olmos Park that were built in the 1880’s- 1890’s. The Homes located in these areas, still have the original exposed beams, stained glass, and hardwood floors. These historic homes usually sell for $300-500,000 range. Most of these homes are required to have special permits restricting renovation and refinnishing to specific architecture standards of that time.
These Historic homes not only represent the rich culture and Heritage of San Antonio, but also a symbol of eras and time periods long before we were born.
