Own a piece of South Texas History. 18.64 acres with wildlife exemption at the southern entrance to historic Grey Forest just off of Scenic Loop Rd. and north of Helotes. The 1890 built home is secluded on top of a ridge and has a panoramic view looking over the valley. Studded with Oaks and Mountain Laurels. Includes two stone patios, one looking over the valley behind the home and another in front covered by a cathedral ceiling. Step back in time to the 1800's. The only settler with money, an attorney, agrees to drill a water well on this peninsula of land looking over the valley below. The other settlers below agree to maintain the windmill and distribution pipes for use of the water. That is the beginning of the Menchaca Valley area and the stonework that still exists today. The elevated water tank now has a poly type tank inside the old stone and the conical metal top will be re-installed. The road is named, of course, for original owners of many of these properties on Menchaca Rd. At the entrance you will turn in at stone walls framing a plasma cut iron gate. The home, a contemporary ranch with a hill country flair has been turned into a modern home inside while keeping many of the original materials and ambiance. You will find Mexico sourced Terrazzo, Porcelain Tile, and Carpet flooring. Custom Alderwood Cabinets with lighting under and within the Cabinets. All Stainless Steel kitchen. Granite countertops. Bathrooms featuring German plumbing fixtures, heated towel rack, porcelain tile, and Subway tile. The living room features a pine plank ceiling with the original massive stone fireplace. The home and outbuildings are all electric. The original walls are stucco over concrete block and the entire roof is standing-seam Galvalum (Corrosion resistant metal alloy.) All windows have been replaced over the last 2-3 years. The oversized garage and shop area will keep auto and motorcycle fans busy and is served with 3-Phase Electric. At the elevated water storage tank is a storage/pumphouse and small office. Property is under wildlife exemption. The Grey Forest area, an eclectic artsy community of generational homes and newcomers alike was used as a summer retreat in the 30's and 40's by San Antonians to escape the hot summers. The Grey Forest area is a transitional residential area where homes are being completely rehabbed or being torn down and replaced as Buyers come to the San Antonio Hill Country.
