The Monticello Homes Story

Inspired by his degree in architecture from The University of Texas and a desire to build a construction business that embraced a more innovative home building process, the Monticello Homes story began in 1994 when Wayne Moravits built his first custom home in San Antonio, Texas. Since inception, Monticello Homes has built its reputation on sound design principles, advanced products and specifications, current construction management techniques, and personal customer service. Monticello Homes has built nearly 1000 homes in the San Antonio metro area's best master-planned communities and on our customers own lots.

The history behind the Monticello name is rooted in our founder’s love for the beautiful home that Thomas Jefferson designed and architected himself in Charlottesville, Virginia, as well as what the home stood for: “an essay in architecture.” Literally standing for “little mountain” in Italian, the name Monticello itself emanates a higher standard of living. It is this same focus on blending design and engineering that has enabled Monticello Homes San Antonio to build its own legacy of unrivaled innovation, beauty and style.
