Fabulous new listing in Dignowity Hill - offered at $139,900

Highly desirable Dignowity Hill Historic District

This beautiful home located within walking distance from the Riverwalk, the Pearl Brewery, the Hays Street Bridge, and much much more is ideal for the urban dweller. Do you work Downtown, at Fort Sam Houston or SAMMC? That's great! You won't have to leave home at an unreasonably early hour to get to work. The close proximity to several major highways also means that you don't have to spend hours on the road to get anywhere. Traffic jam on the highways? Take surface streets and get where you need to be. I live in the neighborhood myself and find that at rush hour I'm always driving against the traffic.




 Check out the new metal roof! In fact this house has been completely updated.







Doesn't this kitchen make you want to cook?




 









The well-thought-out, very efficient floor plan leaves little room for wasted space.


Guest bedroom


 The spacious master bedroom has a large walk-in closet.


A very inviting, super cozy bathroom
