Choosing St. Benedicts Loft Housing in the King William Historic District San Antonio, TX

Although Texas is known for many ranches and spectacular estates, as well as Spanish villa style single family homes and many modern developments, there are several lofts well known throughout the state as well. As more and more residents flock to San Antonio in order to find a new home, more and more high rises and lofts are becoming available to accommodate today’s residents of the greater San Antonio.

One of San Antonio’s most affluent areas is the King William Historic District, which remains a central market for San Antonio real estate. The area is a historical landmark and very expensive to live within, with several types of housing found within. One of the most luxurious areas to live, King William Historic District also is home to St. Benedicts, one of the most luxurious condominium/loft complexes in the entire city. Established in the 20’s and began with a donation from Roger McMonegal, St. Benedicts began as the St. Scholastica Convent, followed by the St. Vincent Home for the Poor and Aged during 1926. During the 50’s, the building was converted once again to the St. Benedict’s hospital, all conversions made by sisters of the era.

Today, the complex is extremely prestigious and offered for living or working space, with a historic and mid-century essence, with all the modern accommodations you would expect. Living within the complex there is an option between building two or three, with several floor plans offered and a higher cost of living as well. The average cost for the condominiums represents the area as well as the several features and amenities offered with housing. Such amenities include fitness, swimming, slate floors in bathrooms, and Thermafoil cabinetry throughout each home.
St. Benedicts is conveniently located in walking distance to several different shops, restaurants, and even downtown San Antonio and all it has to offer. Near all the major highways, travel throughout Texas is easy and convenient. The King William neighborhood is one of the most enjoyed in San Antonio, bringing the St. Benedicts residents to the most unique and arty neighborhoods within the city. Near other great attractions, including The Riverwalk, residents are able to enjoy top quality living in a high quality area.

St. Benedicts is a true example of all the different culture that is found within the state of Texas, with San Antonio a prime example. The King William Historic District has great significance in the city and allows St. Benedicts to shine amongst those who seek perfect loft housing.
