I'll give them credit - if they find someone who just loves Victorian it'll be an easy sale. Otherwise.....

I'm not a realtor but I love looking at houses online. I've driven by this one a bunch this week and finally googled it. Very...unique. Some of it is cool but just very unusual. Honestly I thought it was a school or church.

Edit because I'm an idiot and dont know how to embed pictures, so here's the link.

It would certainly make an amazing fort for the coming civil war 2.0.

I can appreciate the work that went into it, but some of the design choices made are just baffling. It's obviously updated only halfway and the updates are a mix of actual modern vs. generic suburban so it's like there are 3 thing going on at once here. None of them play that nicely with each other.

Anyway I see the potential, but it's going to take a very competent architect or interior and kitchen design person to make that happen. Bring your checkbook!

If at some point, say I dunno... 3,000 days on the market, do you change the list price?

Good grief, give it up man.

Give it another 40-50 years and inflation may have finally caught up with it.

The pics really leave a lot of things to your imagination. Like cars running the stop sign and ending in your bedroom. And where you pull over to open your gate.

Also it looks like there's a tombstone in the front yard. It's kind of obelisk shaped.

Your offer must come with the following promises: "I promise to enjoy the downtown city skyline and all it has to offer throughout the seasons. I promise to appreciate the small size of this home that is uniquely designed to make a bold statement. I promise to enjoy many nights on the large screened-in front porch. I promise not to gloat too much over the low price of this home I get to call my own."

A 600 sq ft house like that would probably sell for the same price here... with a 3 in front.

That might be the nicest horse trough/stock tank pool I've ever run across.

514 Madison

Quote:

In 1895, San Antonio pharmacist William C. Kalteyer and his wife Olga built this house, numbered 1217, facing South Alamo Street. The last member of the Kalteyer family to live in the house was their daughter, Gertrude. In 1974 the house was sold to the legendary Walter N. Mathis, who turned and moved the house to face on Madison Street, and the house became 514 Madison,
Mathis was an interesting character. He had what I like to call **** you money.

I hope they find someone with cash, because it's only $300,000 out of whack with the rest of the neighborhood. Ugh.
Just saw the guy that did the purchase appraisal on this place lost his license due to this "home."

Wait what? What did he do that was so egregious that the licensing agency said he wasnt up to licensing standards?! I would love to hear more info.

Appraised it as residential when it should have been commercial, at least according to the state. (Hit the sales price though!) A highest and best use issue for the property. The building is now a commercial office. (I saw that a couple of weeks ago)

It's a weird three lots, and I'm not privy to the contract details, the middle lot is zoned R, the two side lots are commercial. It appears all three were included in the sale with the driveway improvements going through the commercial lot to the left.

The older zoning map is pretty clear that the house is zoned R while the two lots (one with the driveway) is commercial. They've since all been rezoned R-6 CD, which I've never run across before. Which allows commercial and residential.

Effin mess. I wouldn't have touched that one with a ten foot pole.

I thought the appraisers were selected from a pool so you dont get to choose what you appraise? That seems like a massive CF

I can turn down work. I do it all the time. Some jobs just aren't worth the effort or risk. Some I'm clearly not qualified for. The 1 bedroom new construction earlier on this page is an example of something I was "too busy" to take.
p_bubel

Clearly though, I would have turned down that job due to the zoning issues and told the lender they needed a certified general appraiser. (Commercial guy)

That house is what happens when you stick two KB Homes together.

They screw and produce a basketball court?
The Fife
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Well, that too. KB Homes stand out in San Antonio as being cheap, blocky, and low quality. They're basically a cube, and most have this lovely octagonal window in the front above the front door. I think the window is in a closet so a lot of the time you can see the studs and back side of the drywall from someone blocking it off.

I do believe that's the first time I've seen one of these hit the market here in San Antonio. At least in town.
