The owner selling this historic Monte Vista home meticulously kept it a 1929 time capsule

People often buy old homes and redesign the interiors to make them feel more modern and open. Too often, that erases the charm that made the houses desirable in the first place.

Not so with this two-story 1929 home for sale in San Antonio's Monte Vista Historic District. Pretty much everything inside the two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath property keeps with the classic style of its brick exterior.

It's easy to see why the owner didn't want to change a thing. Knocking down walls would ruin architectural features such as its arched doorways, rounded 1o-foot-high ceilings, nifty Art Deco fireplace and meticulous bathroom tilework.

The seller's obsession with detail even extended to keeping oddities such as a pull-down ironing board built into one of the walls, adding a vintage range to the kitchen and tracking down 100-year-old Spanish tile to refurbish the roof, according to its listing agent.

Beyond all those features, the $529,900 property includes the rarest of San Antonio features: an actual basement.

This home is listed by Jesus Meave with Re/Max Alamo Realty.
