Location: Southtown, San Antonio, Texas
Our home is a 100 year old (this year) Craftsman Bungalow at right around 1500 square feet. It has been fully updated and we love it. We are just 5 minutes south of Downtown San Antonio in an eclectic artist area that is called Southtown. We are blocks from the expanding Riverwalk and other great San Antonio features. This house is an entertainers dream, huge ceilings and great gathering places, I'm a designer and my husband is currently obtaining his Masters in Architecture. We were drawn to the natural light in this home and try not to block it as much as we can.
Storage has been my biggest challenge. 100 years ago they did not need large closet space, but by finding and fixing freestanding furniture pieces we have made it work. We are big fans of craigslist and any other "recycling goods" options including thrift stores and there is a Habitat re-store not too far way.
