A duplex recently listed for sale in the Monte Vista Historic District for $725,000 has both its exterior and interior charms intact thanks to the seller, who the listing agent said made a priority of preserving the structure's historical integrity since buying it in 2007.
One of the home's units is a two-bedroom, one-bath affair with high ceilings and hardwood floors that the listing describes as being "beautifully decorated like a cozy English Cottage." The other includes three bedrooms, two baths with hardwood floors and its period detailing largely untouched.
Built in 1937, the stone-exterior home is in a section of Monte Vista that featured some of the neighborhood's first multifamily dwellings, according to Donald E. Everett's book San Antonio's Monte Vista: Architecture and Society in a Gilded Age.
"By the time development of Monte Vista was well underway, young couples had become attracted to this lifestyle," Everett wrote of the enclave.
