Located slightly north of downtown San Antonio, Monte Visto is an affluent community that is known for its beautiful tree-lined streets and architectural beauty. The Monte Vista Historical Association (MVHA), was founded in 1973 provides education, assistance, and a forum for residents in the area.
The Monte Vista area features 14 subdivisions that span 100 city blocks. It offers a unique mix of Victorian, Moorish, Georgian, traditional, and bungalow architecture. While the average home price is $515,200, many homes are priced closer to a million.
Although Monte Vista is serviced by the highly-rated San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD), many children attend private and religious schools.
