Vintage San Antonio: 6 (MORE) Mad Men Era Homes That’ll Make You Want to Time Travel

In January we published an article that highlighted San Antonio's mid-century homes. It began like this.... 

"With the lasting pop culture effect "Mad Men" had on the country, mid-century modern homes are having their time in the spotlight when it comes to buying a home these days. Although San Antonio may be known more recently for its perfectly groomed, super-sized, master-planned communities, there are several neighborhoods and communities around town that are filled with these vintage homes- many of them making a comeback. Typically built between 1945 and the mid-'70s, these postmodern homes are characterized by their sharp geometric lines, oversized glass windows and sliding doors, and compact floor plans."  See the original article here!
