Former Texas Legislator John H Kirkpatrick developed this picture-perfect pocket of San Antonio more than 100 years ago, and today, his vision has been injected with new life by the award-winning Tripp Flip team! Just half a mile from The Pearl, this home's rich history also offers more than 4600 square feet of updated restoration on a beautiful double lot, including a massive wraparound front porch, a private back porch, and full casita. Own the history without the headache thanks to a new roof, foundation, electrical wiring, plumbing, HVAC, and 2-car garage. Walking through the original front doorway,you will discover the grand staircase, shiplap, coffered ceilings, and 9-foot pocket doors, all original to the home. There are also hidden elements to hunt for, such as the queen-sized Murphy bed & closet camouflaged as office built-ins, and the secret panel under the stairs. The open kitchen is massive, with all new appliances, custom cabinetry, marble countertops, backsplash and built-in shelving. The fresh feel of the room is accentuated by tremendous natural light, along with an original exposed brick heating stack. It is also open to the family room for conversation while cooking. Adjacent to the kitchen is the mud room, which includes a custom dog washing station, along with washer and dryer hook-ups. The primary suite is the prize of this home, with another original brick stack, 12-foot tall custom closet and classic library ladder, separate sleeping and sitting areas, and french doors leading out to your private porch overlooking the backyard which could be perfect for a pool in the future. The en suite bathroom features all the bells and whistles of a luxury home, with a soaking tub, double shower heads, a double vanity, and a $5,000 Toto toilet! Upstairs you'll find two more large bedrooms, each accompanied by a full bathroom, walk-in closets, and original windows. The bedrooms are separated by an enormous game/theater space, which is wired for mounted TVs and other entertainment systems. Finally, there is walk-in attic access for all of your storage needs. Outside, you'll find fresh landscaping, and a newly renovated casita with a full kitchen, full bathroom, and large closet, ideal for rental income. The two-car garage is supplemented by three additional unobstructed parking spaces, with the ability to park more than 12 vehicles off the street on this property. You'll be overwhelmed by this home on your way in the door, and you won't want to walk out! Welcome home.
