This unforgettable Colonial home sits majestically on Ivy Lane, within one of San Antonio’s premier residential neighborhoods. Designed for opulent entertaining as well as stress-free everyday living, timeless architectural embellishments are found in every room of this sprawling estate.
Cut stone pillars mark the entrance to a wide, circular driveway. This magnificent home incorporates nearly thirteen thousand square feet of living space alongside a generous guest apartment, pool with divided cabana plus two garages with space for up to five vehicles. Designed by prestigious American architect Atlee Ayres, constructed in 1952 and situated on approximately four acres, strength and endurance are evident in every detail including the concrete-pier foundation, steel I-beam rafters, and tile roof. This two-story red-brick manor is surrounded by large oak, spruce, magnolia, and pecan trees, nestled within beautifully landscaped lawns as first envisioned by landscape architect John Troy.
On the main level is an entrance hall, library, guest suite, sunroom, living room, powder room, dining room, breakfast room, kitchen, large game room, utility room, butler’s pantry and enclosed walkway, designed to mimic a greenhouse, leading to the game room/theatre. Throughout each space, abundant natural light enhances a soothing color palette. Upon ascending a semi-circular staircase, you are led to six spacious bedrooms, six baths as well as a flex-use space which may function as a small seventh bedroom. Additional convenience and luxury are provided by the elevator, wine cellar, laundry chute, rear staircase, walk-in pantry, enclosed patio and storage room. Showcasing unprecedented workmanship and panache, this extraordinary mansion is thoughtfully arranged for an incomparable lifestyle.
