Owner’s Emily and Houston Carpenter have breathed new life into the once forgotten 2,000-square-foot historic building located at 517 East Grayson Street.

“The house originally belonged to a brewery worker from Switzerland, August Filleman, and his wife Mary,” according to Instagram. “They purchased the land in 1910 for $150. Since then, the house has been home to multiple families and then left empty in 2013.”

Now that renovations are complete, Emily and Houston Carpenter are excited to share their newest venture with the San Antonio community.

“After an extensive renovation to a once forgotten home, we cannot wait to serve you,” Owners Emily and Houston said on Instagram.
