My wife and I met while attending Trinity University, where we fell in love with the diverse and historic neighborhoods a couple of miles north of downtown San Antonio. We moved away for graduate school, jobs and family, but we have enjoyed visiting our college friends and old haunts in the years following our graduation in 2005.
A couple of years ago we decided to invest in a vacation home so we could spend more time in our favorite place. We love mid century modern design and architecture, so we chose a little brick house built in 1946 with elements of a modern ranch home mixed with the traditional craftsman look so common in our "Almost Park" neighborhood. We spent more than a year carefully restoring the property - keeping the character of the home, but fully modernizing the kitchen and master bathroom.
We furnished our little house with retro modern art, textiles, and furniture that we carefully collected from antique stores and estate sales. The Heywood Wakefield dining set came painted avocado green, and we painstakingly restored all 6 pieces over several months.
Our home is designed to be functional, comfortable, private and pleasing to the eye, but as with all old houses, our list of improvements seems never-ending. In the coming months we will work on landscaping, providing a laundry room and doing paint touch-ups. And because this is our first foray into the hospitality industry, we hope to learn how to meet the expectations of a wide range of people.
