Artist Amy Webb, her husband and kids were living in San Antonio, Texas four years ago when they bought this Finneytown ranch after what she calls a “Facetime walk-through.” Why the rush? “At the time houses were just flying” off the market, Webb says, and the family had some pretty specific needs. Tops on the list: accessibility, because one of the couple’s daughters was born with a rare disorder called Microgastria limb reduction defect.
The kitchen walls had already been removed by a previous owner, so the only major project they did to make the home livable for all was a bathroom renovation. They also tossed in a few cosmetic changes, too, adding a skylight in the family room and converting one space into a sunny art studio-slash-home-office.
Built in 1961 by a doctor and his wife, says Webb, “the house itself is one thing, but the property it’s on is fantastic—almost a full acre, at the end of a cul-de-sac; it’s super flat and light and open.” Unfortunately, it’s also already sale pending, but if you want to know more about the Webbs (who are staying local, by the way), check out Amy’s blog, This Little Miggie Stayed Home
, a family lifestyle site, she says, with emphasis on special needs and disability awareness.
