James Walker Flood is best known as the guy who designed San Antonio's tony St. Anthony Hotel. However, he also built residential real estate, including this 1907 Monte Vista home that's plenty stunning in its own right.

The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath property was remodeled in the 1940s by George Willis, another renowned architect, which gives it a sleek midcentury feel. But many of Flood's dramatic turn-of-the-century details remain — among them, crystal doorknobs, original hardwood floors and the antique fireplaces. 

Later renovations to the house included the addition of an eight-foot-by-five-foot island to the kitchen, along with a prep sink and wine fridge. And if that's not fancy enough, the master suite includes an ensuite bath and a huge, windowed walk-in closet — a rarity in historic homes.

The property is on the market for $812,700.

This home is listed by Linda Zimmerhanzel with Concierge Realty of SA.
