 78216, San Antonio, TX - Property For Sale
One could be forgiven for momentarily mistaking this magnificent property for a palace in Tuscany or a mansion in The Hamptons, such is its visual impact from almost every angle. Yet this regal and sophisticated estate, complete with 29 acres of impeccable surroundings, is located in the tranquil and secluded community of Hill Country Village in the heart of San Antonio, Texas - minutes from main traffic arteries, close to downtown and the international airport, yet a million miles from the stresses of everyday life.Entering via a concealed, private gated driveway winding its way to the grand entry of the home, it is immediately apparent that this property is exceptional in every possible way. From the locally quarried fossil stone exterior to the hand-scraped white oak floors and distressed beam ceilings, every detail of the property makes a bold and artistic statement. For more than three years during construction, renowned architect Roy Braswell worked hand-in-hand with the owners to create an elegant showcase reflecting their exquisite taste and passion for fine living. Finishing touches by noted artists and craftsman, both local and international, have resulted in a home that is classical and timeless; a true masterpiece of design, architecture, construction and decorative talent.Keen eyes will spot details like onyx accents embedded in wood floors, intricately hand-painted wallpaper and ceiling effects, mother-of-pearl and abalone shell tile inserts and custom wrought ironwork, as well as the use of exotic woods like knotty alder, mesquite and zebrawood throughout the house. Living areas are expansive and were designed, as was the entire estate, with entertaining on a grand scale very much in mind; the home and grounds have comfortably hosted a wedding party for 500 guests.Descending a roughhewn stone staircase off the kitchen leads to the atmospheric wine cellar, its barrel ceiling creating the feeling of being inside a giant wine cask. The cellar offers a 3,000 bottle capacity and includes a half bath and a dumbwaiter to allow selections to be sent up to the dining room. The master wing features a private octagonal bedroom with spa-style bath, dual-entry walk-in shower and wet sauna patterned after a Las Vegas spa. Dressing areas / walk-in closets must be seen to be believed! Secondary bedrooms are beautifully appointed and feature en suite bathrooms with tub and / or shower.The home also has a beauty salon / barber shop, massage room and a well-equipped workout room. Staff quarters and facilities are discreet and private, and the property has an extensive state-of-the-art security and surveillance system.Spacious, covered outdoor living areas offer virtually unlimited possibilities, and the South Texas climate permits outdoor entertaining almost year round. Truly a home for all seasons, the extensive landscaping and cultivation includes many native and exotic trees, plants and shrubs, intermingled with magnificent flower and vegetable gardens offering seasonal varietals. Balconies and patios off first and second floor living areas make the most of the wonderful surroundings with views across the negative edge stair-step swimming pool to the pastoral meadow and well-stocked pond beyond. A stone fire pit offers the opportunity for quiet reflection or kicking back with friends. Wooded surroundings offer the perfect habitat for deer and other local wildlife which is well protected within the Hill Country Village community.Miniature donkeys roam in an adjacent area in about 25 acres of natural Hill Country environment providing a partial agricultural exemption for the acreage. The property includes garage parking for 8 vehicles and plenty of additional paved parking space for visitors and guests. An absolutely stunning private estate, this home would be exceptional no matter where in the world it was located. Being in the heart of Texas makes it
