Featured in April 2013 Fine Homebuilding Magazine ('Stress Free in South Texas'), this home won the magazine's national award for Best Retirement Home. You can see pictures of the apartment in the magazine article. It is a sustainable, energy-efficient home designed by the owner-architect, but its cozy apartment has all the comforts of home and a vintage feel!
Charming, 2nd floor apartment in the heart of Boerne on Frederick Creek. Own kitchen and bath (dishes and linens provided), dining nook, washer dryer, full-sized refrigerator and stove, microwave, 32-inch flat screen tv on swivel wall mount, internet access. The bed is a double (not queen) with new mattress and box spring. All the furnishings are from the 1930s, and the bed has a wooden headboard and footboard, and as of June 4, 2015, has a newly built frame that eliminates all creakiness of the former antique frame. The tub has a shower. The sofa has comfortable pillows, but does not make into a bed. We provide coffee, coffee maker and snacks. The balcony has a small table and two chairs for morning coffee.
10 minute walk to Main Street filled with antique shops and restaurants. 40 minute drive from San Antonio airport. Private entrance, parking. Picnic on the shady creek!
