Just west of I-10 in Central San Antonio
, Monticello Park holds the charming appeal of a historic neighborhood with all the amenities and modernities of up-and-coming San Antonio. During the late 1920s, a group of developers transformed Monticello Park from a dairy farm into one of the most desirable neighborhoods in San Antonio. Located in the heart of San Antonio’s “Deco District” (named for its signature 1920’s architecture and style), Monticello Park is bordered by Wilson, Babcock, Fredericksburg, and Donaldson.
The Deco District boasts a distinct neighborhood culture, encouraging a historic feel and fostering a vibrant local art scene. Local nonprofits like Network for Young Artists and the acclaimed Woodlawn Theater show off local talent, while even the local H-E-B is affectionately referred to as the “Deco-B”. Besides these cultural attractions, the area provides plenty of natural leisure space. The nearby green space at Woodlawn Lake provides walking trails, boat dock with fishing, a swimming pool, gym, dance studio, softball field, and multiple tennis courts. Besides these area amenities, Monticello’s central location allows residents to enjoy easy access to either the thriving northern corridor or the heartbeat of downtown.
Besides easy access to higher education like San Antonio College, Monticello Park is located within the San Antonio Independent School District. Students are generally zoned to Woodlawn Elementary, Longfellow Middle School, and the historic Jefferson High School. Specialty magnet programs and schools throughout the city are available to students with specific interests or career paths. Most notably, Jefferson High School is a historic landmark, built in 1932 at a cost of $1.5 million. The school has been featured in Life magazine and appeared in several films due to its intricate architectural details.
Beloved for its beautiful homes, mature trees, and eclectic vibes, Monticello Park displays a wide array of gorgeous homes, featuring styles like Revival, English Tudor, Spanish Colonial, Greek, Italianate, Neoclassical, Mission, Craftsmen, English Stone Bungalow, and Art Moderne. While the median listing price is in the mid-$200,000s, some can reach into the $300,000s, depending on renovation and updates. Overall, residents love Monticello for its unique style, neighborhood feel, and architectural details.
