Who said luxury living had to be boring?
In a real estate market overflowing with pristinely bricked and immaculately white-washed modern homes, one-of-a-kind historic gems like 735 E Guenther St remind us that, sometimes, our favorite homes are also the most unconventional ones.
Let’s start at the front porch. Despite its luxury square footage (3200+ square feet) and price tag ($1.5 Million), 735 E Guenther St’s “little lavender bungalow” look is instantly charming. Built in 1905, this home exudes a welcoming personality, inviting guests to sit and rest awhile on the cozy inset front porch.
Step inside, however, and the luxury truth of the matter is revealed: inside the sweet little purple package, a grand, updated interior offers upscale versions of comfort.
From hardwood floors to beautifully restored beadboard walls and ceilings, 735 E Guenther’s common spaces are high-end in every sense, highlighted by generous wall-to-wall windows and views of the backyard oaks.
Further in, the historic-modern flow of the home’s kitchen is an entertainer’s dream: bar seating and an open floorplan offset updated appliances and original built-ins. In keeping with the home’s distinctly colorful theme, stunning blue cabinets offer a unique touch.
One of our favorite parts about historic homes? Their utterly one-of-a-kind floorplans always offer surprising (and delightful) extra common spaces that can be utilized as anything from office space to playrooms to sunny reading nooks.
Lest you start to think common spaces dominate this home’s eclectic luxury, 735 E Guenther St (and its accompanying guest house) also boast five spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. The master suite (pictured above) showcases gallery lighting, beautiful windows, and private porch access.
Nestled on the banks of the San Antonio River in the Historic King William District, 735 E Guenther St takes full advantage of its views. Set with plenty of outdoor porch and courtyard space, this home offers residents breathtaking vantage points from which to watch classic San Antonio river sunsets.
From the charm of 735 E Guenther St, it’s easy to see why San Antonio has a special kind of affection for its historic districts. An eye-catching community in the heart of Downtown San Antonio, this collection of grand vintage homes features gems that span the decades, showcasing architectural styles like Greek Revival, Victorian, and Italianate (all while also boasting close proximity to San Antonio’s trendiest, most up-and-coming attractions).
Tiny pockets rife with emblems of San Antonio’s past, neighborhoods like King William prove that times-gone-by are not to be forgotten.
