Loft apartment (425 sf) in newly constructed carriage house at rear of gated historic property. Located in the heart of the King William Historic District, we are steps from shops, restaurants and the arts of downtown and Southtown; within walking distance of the Alamo and downtown, the Alamodome, and the convention center; near the San Antonio Missions; 15 minutes from Lackland AFB and Wilford Hall; 12 minutes from Fort Sam Houston and SAMMC; and on the San Antonio River Walk.

Der Wohnraum

When we say King William, we are talking of one of the most beautiful districts in America. King William Street, where we are, is at the heart of the district with two museums--The Steves Homestead and Villa Finale--within one block in either direction, and access to the San Antonio Riverwalk/Mission Reach is just across the street. The famous Pioneer Flour Mill and Guenther House restaurant is at the end of our street, too!

The King William Historic District dates back to the 1790s, when the land that once belonged to the Mission San Antonio de Valero (now known as The Alamo) was made available for native settlers in the area or sold at auction. In the 1860s, the area was divided into lots and sectioned by present-day streets. Soon after, German nationals who immigrated to Texas in the 1840s began to settle in the area. The area developed as the King William district when Ernst Altgelt, a German immigrant who later became a businessman in San Antonio, named its main street after King Wilhelm I, the king of Prussia in the 1870.

But the King William district didn't always have its current title. It was once known as the "Sauerkraut Bend," a derogatory name given to the German community. And during World War I, when anti-German sentiment ran high, King William Street was named Pershing Avenue to honor U.S. Army Gen. John J. Pershing. The Greek Revival, Victorian and Italianate-styled homes that line King William Street date back to the 19th Century. These homes have been there from the start; Germans that settled in the area constructed large and impressive homes to form their own idyllic neighborhood.

After World War II, the neighborhood's allure began to decline after original settlers moved away and houses fell into disrepair. In the 1950s, preservationists began to restore original homes, making it a fashionable district once again. With its revitalization came its historical value. In 1968, King William became the city's first designated historic district and in 1972, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was also given the title of the oldest historic district in Texas.

Art is treasured in King William and Southtown. The historical district holds an art walk on the first Thursday of every other month, while Southtown holds a walk on the first Friday of every month. Both give exposure to local artists and musicians through pop-up shows and galleries.

And every home in King William has a story.

The Nix Houses were built in 1899 by J.M. and Birdie Nix, young property developers from Alabama. Their architect was a young Atlee B. Ayres, a major regional architect of the first half of the 20th century in central Texas. Ayres was the first San Antonio architect honored as a fellow of the American Institute of Architects. He was the Texas State Architect in the early 1910s and built thousands of iconic commercial and residential buildings and court houses across Texas.

The Nix homes were started in December 1899 and finished by March 1900. Ever the business-minded family, the Nix's lived at 432 and used 434 as a boarding house. They had one son; a number of great grandchildren still live in the area. The Nix's occupied the home until 1907. In San Antonio, the Nix's built the Nix Hospital, the Emily Morgan Hotel, and the Majestic Theater, among others.

The Bouquet family--Arthur William and Edna Laura--bought the home in 1943; daughter Edna Rose Bouquet lived in the home until 2005.

For years, before King William was a designated historic district, Edna Rose, a redhead with long beautiful curls, operated a beauty salon in her carriage house. "I had a thousand customers in my heyday," she says. "I was the fastest hair stylist in San Antonio. I could turn you out in no time flat and you'd look beautiful. "

The house and carriage house sat vacant until 2013 when the Galbraith family bought and restored the property. Welcome!

Fantastic place, beautiful neighborhood and a great host. Personal touch of host's manual with restaurant recommendations and places to visit as well as drinks and nibbles was much appreciated! Thanks Shelley!

Shelley has been an amazing host. Super quick to respond to any emails and allowed us to have tickets sent to her address ready for an event later on our trip. The studio apartment was immaculately clean with a fridge full of cold drinks. Great location- we throughly enjoyed our running routes along the riverbank. An easy 15-20 mins walk to downtown San Antonio. We would certainly stay again.

Shelly's Carriage House apartment is perfect. In the beautiful King William District and located near all the cool kids hangouts PLUS walking distance to the River Walk and B-Cycle docks, breweries, excellent restaurants, coffee and tea shops, art galleries, little hole in the wall places off the beaten path...perfection! We parked our cars and didn't get back in them till we left 3 days later. The apartment itself is so well designed that it's making us rethink all of our 1400 sq. ft. In Galveston!

Shelley's carriage house was the perfect place to stay while visiting San Antonio -- not only was the location ideal and the neighborhood charming, the unit itself was just amazing. The carriage house was recently renovated and was sleek and spotless. The unit was comfortable and well-appointed -- Shelley thought of everything! We hope to stay again when we return to San Antonio.
