Based on its proximity to the Monte Vista Historic District, some folks refer to San Antonio's Beacon Hill neighborhood as Baja Monte Vista.
While Beacon Hill may not share the same historic designation, it's certainly got plenty of history — and plenty of stately homes — as evidenced by this two-story property now on the market for $429,000.
The home was built in 1915, becoming one of the first houses in the then-fledgling neighborhood. It was originally owned by a railroad worker, whose daughter later took over the home while she taught at nearby Mark Twain Middle School.
The second-floor porch, colorful paint job and front yard designated as a monarch butterfly way station all bring plenty of curb appeal. But the interior of the four-bedroom, three-bath home is just as remarkable. From the archways between rooms to the elegant wood-paneled library, it's clear serious care went into this restoration.
