Among the finest of Westside Alamo - .58 acre flat lot, gorgeous hacienda style home that embodies true Spanish character with vaulted wood-beamed ceilings, authentic Saltillo floor tiles, and wooden doors and windows. Lovingly built in 2005, it has timeless character that looks brand new, and like it might have been there for 100 years, all at the same time. The home features a gourmet kitchen with Wolf gas range with pot filler, double ovens, steam oven, built-in panel front sub-zero refrigerator and a huge island with additional prep sink. The open kitchen adjoins a cozy family room and eating area. The formal living and dining rooms face out onto a fantastic party patio that is the entry to the yard beyond. The yard features lush plantings, lawn and a second garage with super storage - that could be repurposed as ADU or pool house (for a future pool). There is an additional spot in the back right corner of the lot that could support another casita, if desired.
