This little country house duplex is just as cute inside and out.

The San Antonio real estate market is going to be hot this year. (Warmer than Austin!) And San Antonio rents aren’t going down. From finding your perfect new home to negotiating rental prices, finding an apartment in San Antonio can be quite the experience. Taking inspiration from our sister publication SFGate in San Francisco, MySA reviews local properties showcasing the best, the worst, and everything in between right here in the Alamo City. Let’s guess the rent.

We’re leaving the lonely sticks outside of Bandera for this week’s listing, a two-bedroom duplex country home in New Braunfels with a lovely kitchen. The 1,035 square foot duplex at 472 California Boulevard is in a hillside neighborhood near Landa Park hiking trails and a golf course. The house itself is only five minutes from historic downtown New Braunfels.

Let’s take a look inside.

The entire duplex unit, except for the bathroom, has custom wood flooring.

This duplex has wood floors throughout. Double doors lead out to what the listing calls a secluded back porch with a “rustic cabin”. If only the listing had a photo.

Recessed lights and an arched window above the sink make this kitchen look like it was pulled out of a bathroom problem. Better homes and gardens. You’ll have access to modern appliances, including a gas stove for any roasts you make.

Even the bathroom with a freestanding vanity and sink is just as comfortable.

Since the duplex is so close to downtown New Braunfels, how much will you be paying per month? The rent is $1,500 with a $1,000 deposit. The listing says he will be available to move in in February.

Zumper says the average home rent in the Landa Park area is $1,418.
