This home for sale in San Antonio's Monte Vista historic area comes with a blinding yellow bathroom

There is a gentle graciousness a home that went on the market last week in San Antonio’s historic Monte Vista neighborhood. It combines the charm and warmth of 1928 architecture with the light and modern comforts of today.

But walk into the guest half-bathroom under the stairs, and it’s an acid flashback of vibrant 1950s-style yellow wallpaper embellished with faux neoclassical paintings. There’s even a matching skirt for the sink.

Surprise water closet aside, the $850,000, four-bedroom house has a quite different surprise upstairs where the master bathroom mixes the hyper-contemporary and Edwardian for a bathing experience inspired by Hotel Emma, the ultra-luxury hotel built inside the former Pearl Brewery on the San Antonio River, according to its listing.

Other touches include laundry facilities upstairs and downstairs, working blue-and-white-tiled fireplaces on both floors, restored original hardwood floors and custom light fixtures. Out back is a fully freestanding casita accessible from the street with kitchen, bathroom and laundry next to the recently refurbished swimming pool.

This home is listed by Sonia J. Perez-Olivares with Keller Williams City View.
