A San Antonio home designed by the architect of Jefferson High School and Texas A&M is for sale

As the designer of Thomas Jefferson High School's distinctive Spanish Colonial Revival campus, architect Carlton Adams' work is familiar to many San Antonio residents.

He also earned accolades for the structures he dreamed up elsewhere in the Lone Star State, including the Kerr County Courthouse and several building at Texas A&M when he was the university's campus architect.

Adams' earliest success, however, was in designing homes in some of San Antonio's poshest neighborhoods — such as this distinctive stone-exterior home built in 1932 in Monte Vista.

Recently listed for $850,000, the four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath property includes numerous architectural details that speak to Adams' eye for detail. The home's exterior includes a pair of Juliette balconies, while the inside features the original lathe and plaster walls with plenty of ornate molding and built-in cabinetry.

This home is listed by Diana Ridgway with Coldwell Banker D'Ann Harper, Realtors.
