Not all historic homes in San Antonio are Victorian palaces with gabled roofs, sprawling second-floor balconies and carriage houses.
Some, like this 1920 cottage in Government Hill, pack a lot of character into a minimum of space — just 1,100 square feet in this case.
Beyond a cute and colorful exterior, replete with decorative woodwork around the covered porch, this two-bedroom, one-bath property on the market for $265,000 boasts original bead board walls and refinished hardwood floors.
The quaint kitchen, while updated with new appliances, is also chock full of early-last-century charm. Throw in a deck with a tree growing through it and a low-maintenance backyard sitting area, and this spot proves someone doesn't need to buy big to live in style.
