Twelve Oaks Manor —– Summer Home Tour

Twelve Oaks Manor —– Summer Home Tour

Have you seen the Summer Home Tours hosted by Gina at The Shabby Creek Cottage?

If not, you’re missing out on an extraordinary collection of 26 beautiful blogger homes on display for all of us to see!

heaven!!! :)

Plus, today she’s having a link party where you can link up your own home so, I decided to join in on the fun!


Welcome!  My name is Angela and Twelve Oaks Manor is my passion! After traveling around the world for 20+ years with my husband, who is now retired from the military, we have settled in San Antonio, Texas.  We love it here but do miss our Northwest roots!  Originally from Oregon, living in Texas is quite a difference, but we’ve come to love it and enjoy sharing it with you!

Welcome to Twelve Oaks Manor!


Front Porch

I’ve always dreamed of having a big front porch with rocking chairs and enough room to breath.  Well, my dreams were answered….




Let’s head inside!





To the left is our dining room!  Many heirlooms fill this room.  I just wish it was used more than a couple of times a year.  Still, I enjoy the memories we have made there!




If we continue on through the foyer, we reach the living room.




As we continue on to our left, we will find the eating area and kitchen….the heart of our home!

We round out the first floor with the master bedroom…..





……..and bath




As we head upstairs, we will find the game room which has hosted many family occasions, movie nights and a hot game of cards!




We round out the upstairs with our main guest room.  There are two more additional bedrooms which are ‘under construction’!  Keep checking back to see their transformations!




We finish up our tour with our favorite room of the whole house which is actually outside in the backyard! With our tropical climate here in deep Texas, we can spend almost all year outdoors.  After our many travels, we decided we wanted our own little ‘resort’ so we would never need to leave!





Thank you so much for joining me today.  If you ever find yourself in our neck of the woods, feel free to drop in!  There’s always ice tea in the fridge and the bar is stocked!

I’d love for you to see more, so please stop by Twelve Oaks Manor!


Joining The Shabby Creek Cottage for Summer Home Tours Linky Party!


  1. Angela- It is an absolutely beautiful home. You have done a wonderful job and I can see special memory pieces in each and every room. How wonderful to have your own “retreat” after 20 years of travel. It was worth the wait. I’ll look forward to seeing the other two rooms in the future. LOVE you backyard!!! xo Diana

  2. Love seeing pictures of your home Angela. I really like your style and homey your place is. I bet living here is a big adjustment with the heat. It’s a great state though and I’m awfully glad to be a Texan.

  3. What a beautiful home! Thanks for the tour, I especially love your porch and patio, we love ‘living’ outside as well. When I saw the first photo, before reading anything, I thought ‘this must be in Texas’! The live oaks and lone star are a big giveaway, lol. I was born and raised in San Antonio, and still work there (LOVE my city!), but now live an hour away in the hill country. We are very blessed to live in such a wonderful part of the country!


  4. Angela! Your home is beautiful, I LOVE your front porch I could sit out there all day, you have done a wonderful job with your home!

  5. You know how much I love your backyard! I really like the flags out front. And your laundry room is so fresh and bright…love the open shelving. The stencil in your bedroom and bath is very pretty.

    Beautiful home…ready for summer!

  6. Your home is lovely. I love seeing homes, and thank you so much for stopping by my blog, too. I will look forward to following your blog.

  7. So pretty! My first thought was…oh I just want to come sit on your front porch! My last thought was…oh wait..I want to sit on that back patio! Beautiful from start to finish!
