About 555 Eldon Road

Built in 1937, this historic estate is nestled on almost 1.5 acres in the heart of one of San Antonio's most cherished and desirable communities. Surrounded by mature oak trees, the gorgeous and expansive home offers an elegant lifestyle, enriched by the memories of bygone days and enhanced by every seamlessly integrated modern amenity. Large formal living spaces accented by traditional architectural details have been tastefully updated and expanded to accommodate the needs of the modern family. Design and construction of luxury homes during this era of prosperity and growth in South Texas were largely motivated by entertaining, and this masterpiece was created with grand aspirations for hosting gatherings of all kinds, great and small. In this tradition, an extraordinary gourmet kitchen was part of a 2017 addition, with multiple windows reflecting the colourful veins in the quartzite surfaces beneath a chapel ceiling. It complements the new poolside cabana with full amenities designed to host up to 70 guests. The majestic primary suite welcomes and embraces, with custom closets and a luxurious bath. A heavenly guest house also extends every comfort, including a kitchen and full bath. This unique property is a home ... and a legacy. - 11/29/2021 5:16:04 PM
