The lowdown: Built at the end of the 19th century, this impressive Classic Revival home is not only a part of the historic Monte Vista neighborhood, but it also helps define it. The 1972 San Antonio Historic Survey noted that the property “contributes substantially to the identity of the neighborhood and the street scene," its massive, two-story ionic columns hinting at the vintage charm — grand staircase, multiple fireplaces, intricate woodwork — that awaits. A guest casita contributes to the overall 0.44 acres.
Originally built for D.K. Furnish, a legendary Texas land and cattleman, this home greets visitors with an impressive parlor complete with a distinctive fireplace and grand, sweeping staircase. High ceilings and intricate woodwork adorn this modern escape, accented with the a beautiful chandelier.
While the property retains a majority of its vintage character, the kitchen has been modernized with updated cabinetry, granite counters, an island, and new appliances. Upstairs you'll find four spacious bedrooms, two full baths, and an oversized laundry room. The 14-foot landing/loft area could serve as an open office and as a place to display art. You can glimpse the downtown San Antonio skyline from the upper porch, which is perfectly positioned to catch the evening breeze.
Life inside Loop 410 provides a unique lifestyle, with fine dining at local favorites such as La Fonda on Main, Barbaro’s, and Capparelli’s on Main, as well as upscale shopping at Kathleen Summers and top-notch private education such as San Antonio Academy and Keystone School.
