H.C. Thorman, the real-estate mogul behind the distinctive Olmos Park and Monticello Park neighborhoods, also built houses in other near-downtown enclaves, including this eye-popping pink property now for sale in Mahncke Park.
The Mediterranean home features distinctive planters framing its front entrance, fancy architectural details on its facade and an ornate Renaissance-style stone carved fireplace — all très chic touches fitting its 1935 vintage.
The interior of the two-bedroom, two-bath property is also full of distinctive elements, including arched doorways, elaborate crown molding and imported European crystal chandeliers.
Thorman, a prolific builder who also did an addition to the posh San Antonio Country Club, professed a love for designing "dandy homes" in one of his 1920 ads. Hard to disagree here.
That said, the $425,000, the home is clearly in need of some TLC, even its property listing says previous owners conducted foundation repairs with a limited lifetime warranty and outfitted it with 33 new windows.
