Red Berry Mansion Project
The mansion, now owned by The RK Group, was built in 1951 by Texas representative and senator Virgil Edward “Red” Berry in 1951. The RK Group renovated the original mansion to lease out as an event center as part of a $60 million redevelopment of the Red Berry Estate. “The interior and exterior of the historic mansion has been remodeled from top to bottom,” and includes a new lakeside pavilion sitting by a 12-acre lake with views of the San Antonio skyline. We worked on the interior of the mansion for almost a year, which consisted of all the steel stud framing, ceilings and furr downs. We also framed and sheetrocked the new fire rated elevator shaft that was added. What is not shown on their website are the four Restrooms where we custom-built and installed unlacquered brass and mahogany partitions as seen below. Be sure to follow the link below to get a close up look of the building and property, it’s simply stunning!
The wood has just received stain and hasn’t been lacquered yet, you’ll have to visit the mansion to see the final product but it’s beautiful.
