This stately home south of downtown San Antonio used to be such a wreck that pipes held up its balcony

Nobody said restoring 107-year-old homes to their former glory was easy.

The real estate firm that recently put this two-story Victorian home on the market spent eight months restoring and upgrading it. When it took over the 1914 property, it had fallen into such bad repair that metal pipes were needed to support its sagging second-story balcony.

Now, the balcony is the visual centerpiece of the upgraded home, which has received a spiffy exterior paint job and plenty of modern touches inside, including impressive kitchen and bath makeovers.

The home is nestled in a neighborhood south of King William and just north of U.S. Highway 90. It's listed for $499,000.

This home is listed by Stephanie Jewett Paxton with San Antonio Portfolio Keller Williams Alamo Heights.
