About Florence Scrafield

I love spending time in San Antonio. The festive city has so much to offer. I spend my summers up north and love to enjoy part of the winter months in sunny San Antonio playing tennis, riding my bike, puttering in my garden, or just enjoying the perfect climate.

Florence Scrafield purchased this house in 2003

Why Florence Scrafield chose Uptown

Situated in the heart of San Antonio this home offers easy access to major Highways without being too close to any of them. It is a new street with only 14 properties tucked into a scenic quiet part of the city. I love to walk around the golf course in this friendly neighbourhood. This property is gated and fenced for additional privacy. The many Washingtonian palms provide a tropical atmosphere.

What makes this house unique

This home is on a pie shaped lot with lots of plants and fruit trees (lemon peach apple orange) and a variety of flowering trees and shrubs and palm trees.

The master-bedroom has a two person Jacuzzi with 22 foot ceilings and romantic lighting; while the second floor has a fresh bright feeling with a private marble patio for reading or enjoying that morning coffee. For the avid golfer, it's a short walk to the driving range and putting green. On a quiet morning you can see and hear the golfers on the signature hole, from the second floor balcony! A third patio n the back yard is a quiet alternative in the morning shade of summer , or a warm comfort in the winter afternoons.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home. We had a wonderful time in San Antonio and having a home to come back to at the end of our busy days was great. We loved the location of your home as well as all of the amenities your home offers. Thank you for keeping the kitchen stocked as we enjoyed several lazy breakfast mornings.

Everything in your home was amazing and the kids really felt comfortable. My 8 year old daughter loved being in your garden and I appreciated that it was completely fenced in. We started giving the baby baths in the jacuzzi tub and he had a blast! My daughter has told me several times that she wants us to buy your home because she loved it so much! Overall, we had a wonderful time and you have helped me earn some serious bragging rights because I did such a great job picking a nice place for us to stay for vacation.

10 out of 5 stars!

  • 5 of 5

The facilities at this home are exceptional and there is lots of space for everyone! The home is in a great location - close to many attractions, stores etc. The home and the yard were immaculate and very well designed. We loved that the master bedroom is located on the opposite side of the home from the bedrooms on the second level. Lots of pamphlets, maps and tourist attraction information was available in the butlers pantry. All instructions were very clear and contained everything we needed to know. It was nice to have basic supplies already in the home (just replace what you use and leave what you don’t use for the next visitors). The owner (Florence) was so friendly and helpful and was only a phone call or email away if we had any questions. Thank you for sharing your amazing home with others Florence, it's a very special place. We so enjoyed both in the inside and outside of your home that we are planning our next visit already! See you soon ...this will be the only place we ever stay at while visiting San Antonio!!!

Horseback riding, tennis, visiting the Zoo, Art galleries or botanical gardens are also memorable activities.

Other Activities: Stock Show and Rodeo, Morgans Wonderland, Toyota field professional soccer Wine tasting tours, visiting the Mexican market or riverwalk.

Golf: Golf mecca. Everything from par 3 courses to Pro Resort courses. Dozens of courses to choose from. This home is on Northern Hills golf course which has been described as easy-medium fairways with very difficult greens.
