Description


An architectural and engineering masterpiece built upon a foundation of solid rock and supported by a series of columns and arches, this amazing multi-level home is nestled on the edge of a bluff overlooking the Olmos Dam, offering uninterrupted views across the Olmos Basin all the way to downtown San Antonio. Designed by Tom Pressly and built by Bartlett-Cocke in 1986, this beautiful landmark residence presents an incredible lifestyle as well as a dramatic location. Concealed from the street, an electric gateway winds through an arbor and onto a brick-paved driveway. In one direction, the driveway curves gently upwards to the home`s grand entrance and surrounding terraces while the other side slopes down to a parking garage and living areas. From the upper entrance, an elevator takes you to a bridge over the main living space leading to a stone staircase descending over a massive dual-sided fireplace dividing casual and formal living areas. Floor-to-ceiling arched windows flood the entire two-story living space with natural light. The kitchen, just off the family area, features a masterful collection of amenities and abundant preparation space. Occupying the entire second level, the sunlit master suite offers a sitting area with a fireplace and opens onto its own private patio. The master bath includes a dressing area outfitted with mirrored walls, dual walk-in closets and a large shower. Below this level, two secondary bedrooms or guest suites, each with a private bath and a balcony offering wonderful treetop views make overnight stays for guests a wonderful experience. Bright and spacious living areas, as well as patios and terraces on four separate levels, offer endless opportunities for entertaining on any scale. Indoor-outdoor living is nothing short of spectacular, and over the years, this remarkable residence has hosted many celebrities, including presidents and other world leaders. This is a very rare opportunity to acquire one of the city`s most unique properties. - 4/26/2017 4:50:14 PM
