Restored hardwood floors and Saltillo tile, along with a new tiled roof, preserve the 1920s-era feel throughout a Monte Vista Historic District house recently listed for $825,000.
Colorful accent tiles throughout the kitchen add a pop of color to the 98-year-old home, and tiles behind the stove compose a work of art. Colorfully accented windows carry the theme through the kitchen and bathrooms.
Until 2003, the Spanish-Mediterranean property was the home of veteran hotelier Dale Schuette, who was general manager of the historic Crockett Hotel when it underwent a major renovation in the 1980s to restore it to its 1909 grandeur. He later founded the Arbor House Suites downtown before moving to New Mexico.
Schuette often reminisced about not having indoor plumbing growing up in rural Wisconsin, according to his 2021 obituary. Interestingly, he ended up in a house with four bathrooms.
The sun-filled laundry room, which includes a sink and ample counter space, doubles as a solarium looking into the backyard. Outdoor amenities include a slab for half-court basketball and a pool with a built-in spa.
