As a luxury apartment community for the last eight years, Saint Benedict’s has been enthusiastically embraced by native San Antonians & transplants alike. The rich history of this property dates back to the turn of the twentieth century.
In the 1950’s the St. Benedictine sisters established a nursing home and hospital on the property, which was in operation in one form or another until the mid-1980’s. From the early 1990’s to 2004, the property sat vacant and in disrepair until it was purchased by an investment group that included the present owners.
Notable architect Davis Sprinkle began transformation of the property’s mid-century structures into 66 high-end, design-minded living spaces in 2006. No detail was spared during the design & planning process. According to Sprinkle, “The goal was to create a modern oasis in the heart of the historic King William neighborhood. The minimalist design aesthetic is expressed in the layout of the residential units with their large picture windows, open floor plans, and crisp white interiors. The variety of communal courtyard spaces lends a contemplative vibe by offering gathering areas that afford privacy while still connecting back to the neighborhood.
Individual condominiums characterized by brick, exposed concrete, & steel construction – designed for long-term, low-maintenance sustainability. Featured design element includes expansive windows, which allow for ample natural light & priceless views of the King William neighborhood and downtown.
Sleek kitchens feature white Thermofoil cabinetry, solid countertops, Bosch appliances, and polished fixtures. Calm & cool bathrooms boast slate flooring & mosaic tile.
Fully equipped 24-hour fitness center is located just off the pool area and provides an inviting & stimulating area to exercise the mind, body, & soul.
Three acres of land offers expansive greenery, convenient parking – plus a relaxing pool & lounging area. Professionally landscaped with succulents and drought tolerant plantings.
Nestled in the heart of the historic King William District in San Antonio, Saint Benedict’s location is unlike any other.
