Today’s home in the Terrell Hills area near San Antonio, Texas is a classic English Tudor built in 1900 and envisioned by architect Atlee B. Ayres. His exquisite taste for English style is evident in the richly detailed elegance of the home`s facade of striking dark red brick, asymmetrical gables, slated roofs and gabled dormer windows.
The elegantly crafted home is comprised of approximately 11,000 square feet, and subtly brings together rich Elizabethan and Jacobean detailing. The grand formal living room is distinguished by plaster ceilings with delicate fleur-de-lis detailing. The focal point of the room is the oversized herringbone fireplace with columned marble mantel.
The adjoining family room with dark oak floors is accentuated by a ceiling modeled after Skibo Castle in Scotland. The dining room exhibits one-of-a-kind, hand-painted Gracie wallpaper and notable leaded-glass windows with crests, while the grand study showcases original Moravian tile. The chef`s kitchen features white marble counters, stainless steel appliances and island with seating.
The outdoor space includes multiple patios and a reflecting pool, harmoniously blending to create a rare convergence of incomparable grandeur with unique elements of a bygone area. These idyllic accents create an unparalleled private compound in the heart of Terrell Hills.
This classic estate is listed for $5 million with Phyllis Browning Company and is showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
