Historic home in Olmos Park Featured on the Cover of Luxury Home Magazine San Antonio Issue 11.4

Olmos Park, TX – August 3, 2021 – 1920’s luxury still can be found in the Olmos Park area of San Antonio. The Robertson House at 303 Divine Road, is one of the finest early 20th century homes in San Antonio. The stately mansion stands surrounded by impeccable landscaping and a multitude of patios – some decorated with small statues. This five-bedroom, four-bath garden home was designed by NY architect William McNight Bowman. You can easily feel that the grand Villas of Veneto were his inspiration. His design was so amazing that it was featured in the 1920 issue of the Architectural Forum.

Like the Italian villas, this historic home, features a second-floor grand room, where it overlooks the sweeping front lawn. This drawing room still has its original leaded glass windows. The other half of the second-floor houses four of the bedrooms, each exquisite in its own right The guest suite is on the main level. There are also guest accommodations in a detached, fully outfitted casita. Guests, family and friends can gather in the pool area. There are several patios to accommodate sun bathers, or swimmers enjoying the uniquely shaped hand-painted tiled, glistening swimming pool.

Interestingly, this historic home’s contemporary kitchen is large enough to sit at the granite-topped island or a table for eight. Black and stainless double wall ovens, microwave, and dishwasher are built in to make the many cabinets stand out. The kitchen is one of several light, airy rooms including a lovely sitting room with French doors to the outside. The brightest sunny room is the enclosed patio with brick floor, just a few steps down from the kitchen. It makes the perfect artist’s studio.

A stunning private study/library has built-in beautiful floor-to-ceiling shelves and cabinets. A wood-burning fireplace is the centerpiece of this comfortable, warm, relaxing room. Another warm, welcoming living room with an expansive built-in hutch is one place to entertain friends. While the formal dining room with candelabra chandelier lets you hold a catered dinner or black-tie affair. From the circular drive entry and porte cochere to the mud-laundry room, every detail says 1920’s grandeur.

A must-see historic home!
