The former home of late businessman Alfred W. Witte, whose family is the namesake of the Witte Museum, is now on the market in San Antonio's King William Historic District.
Witte died in 1925, leaving $65,000 to fund development of a museum in Brackenridge Park. That significant city landmark was ultimately named for his parents.
While Witte's former home — a 2,500-square-foot, Spanish-style along the King William parade route — may not be as sprawling as the Witte (or boast on-site dinosaurs), it's still an impressive window into Old San Antonio.
The 11-foot ceilings, architectural woodwork, longleaf pine floors and stained glass windows check all the boxes one expects to find in a lavish local home built in 1903. However, equally impressive are more recent renovations that allowed the kitchen and bedrooms to keep one foot in the past while feeling fresh, airy and modern.
The property is currently on the market for $875,000.
