Beacon Hill

Beacon Hill is a small neighborhood nestled in Midtown, which is approximately 2.5 miles away from downtown San Antonio. This is a largely residential community that is known for the older homes and architecture that lines the streets of this community. Recently there is a revitalization effort to restore the homes and streets to their former glory. For this reason, Beacon Hill is an up-and-coming neighborhood that is beginning to thrive once again.

There are many Victorian-style and Bungalow homes in Beacon Hill. Many of these were built in the early 1900s. Despite this, Beacon Hill does not have historical status, which is good for those hunting for housing bargains. The lack of historical status means cheaper homes, with the average home costing just over $95K. Many of these homes have been renovated and turned into apartment or rental housing. The average rental price in Beacon Hill is just $537. The area is great for singles or couples without children though several families also reside in Beacon Hill. Children who live in Beacon Hill are zoned to attend schools with in the San Antonio Independent School District.

The biggest thing to see in Beacon Hill is the architecture. Because the neighborhood is so small there is not a lot to see in terms of dining or shopping but the homes themselves become the entertainment. A leisurely drive through the quiet streets of Beacon Hill will show the types of homes that were built at the turn of the century and the popularity of different types of architecture of that time. Though Beacon Hill has mostly Bungalow and Victorian styles, there are several converted duplexes and fourplexes where you can still see some throwback architecture. -information courtesy of
