Architect Humberto Saldaña is known for big public projects such as UTSA's downtown campus, libraries and government buildings. He's also won accolades for high-profile restoration projects such as the San Antonio City Hall façade and the 27 buildings in historic La Villita.
Turns out the architect has turned his hand to smaller projects over the years, including bringing a new life to this charming four-bedroom, three-bath house now for sale in the Monte Vista Historic District.
Monte Vista's older homes tend toward dark interiors thanks to east- and west-facing windows that took advantage of cooling cross breezes before the miracle of modern air conditioning. But Saldaña brought lots of light into this 1926 Tudor Revival-style house with the addition of an atrium that spans from front to back.
The design work throughout the $675,000 home keeps it in character with the neighborhood instead of turning it into a suburban-style cookie-cutter property. It also has an in-ground pool on the side, an unusual feature for Monte Vista.
