A historic San Antonio home designed by the architect of the McNay Art Museum is for sale

A 1930 Spanish Colonial home designed by Atlee Ayres, considered the dean of Alamo City architects, has hit the market for just shy of $1.9 million.

Ayers, of course, was known for creating the gorgeous estate that later became the McNay Art Museum and for designing Municipal Auditorium and a plethora of Texas courthouses. This 4,400-square-foot home tucked away in Olmos Park features the many elegant architectural details that are Ayres hallmarks.

A distinctive staircase — almost a spiral but not quite — provides a stunning focal point to the home, while the living area features elegant redondo tile, dramatic wooden beams and what its listing describes as a "stunning" bar. 

The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home's primary suite even includes a vaulted ceiling and its own sitting area.

This home is listed by Jason Glast with Phyllis Browning Co.
