Bob and Jan Harvey moved to Alteza late last year. After putting the finishing touches on their residence, the Harvey’s home is being showcased in an editorial feature story. The Harveys have been kind enough to share their personal perspective on life at Alteza. We’re fortunate to be able to share it with you…in their own words:
“When you enter our home, we have proudly created a heritage wall, displaying a collection of Bob’s family photos, land grants and hand-written family history including a relative who was among the five men who captured Santa Ana at San Jacinto. On the opposing wall, we have a smaller representation of some of Bob’s early years including his Texas A&M affiliation–these ties run deep.”
“It is a small town in the heart of the city. For those folks who like to get out and about in the neighborhood, the local restaurants are accustomed to tourists. “Regulars” become celebrities. Service that is ordinarily quite nice becomes “drop-dead” personable. We attend theater, symphony and exhibits. It is amazing how quickly the attendants get to know you and ensure preferential treatment.”
“We have spoken with people that have lived in San Antonio all of their lives. They never really knew San Antonio until they moved into this fabulous neighborhood, and that’s what living at Alteza is all about. We are a neighborhood where everything is available by a delightful walk or by hailing a cab. Theater, clubs, restaurants, museums, the Hemisfair Park…Wow!”
“The concierge staff is so convenient for people who travel. It’s great to have a home where you don’t have to worry about putting the lights on while you’re away. You can relax knowing your home is being looked after. Not to mention when every day issues arise…a stain on your area rug, need an excellent spa, or dinner reservations, we just call the concierge for a well-regarded resource.”
“We love running into our neighbors in the lobby. We are a small community, but we still enjoy our privacy. We all get together for great holiday parties on the roof, and take advantage of the communal areas that can be used for parties and entertaining. The concierge staff took a picture of me at the last party that is a sure hoot…me in a Fiesta hat and a passer-by for the soccer match between USA and Mexico.”
“Downtown is a multi-cultural neighborhood where Fiesta is celebrated not just during two weeks in April. Alteza puts the salsa into living in the city. All that being said, we are night people. Don’t call before 10:00 a.m.!!”
