There are some nice spanish houses on the near west side, around Frederichsburg Rd & Woodlawn Ave. This area is cheaper (probably around $100K), pretty safe, but does have somewhat sketchy areas. There is a nice historic district (can't remember the name) over there around Woodlawn lake that seems pretty nice.

There is a little Korean area over by where I live by Ft. Sam around Rittiman rd and Harry Wurzbach. Other than that, don't know of any other "asian areas".

I'll echo Rockin's comments about the southside. I have three single female friends who have recently moved to the Highlands area. My opinion is that this area is starting a renaissance - it's close to downtown, and the Military Drive/281 area has had a HUGE resurgence in business activity. Yes, there are still some sketchy parts, and I can't recall if the Highlands area has that many spanish style homes.

Now echoing ciJay's comments, there is one street, Fulton Ave. between I-10 and Fredericksburg road that perfectly matches the homes (size, style, and price) you spoke about. The street actually became it's own historic district about 2 years ago, but some of the surrounding streets are not great.

Across Fredericksburg road from Fulton, the Monticello Park Historic Distric begins. There are spanish style homes in the area, but the prices are higher - think $100 per square foot, often much higher when the home is nicer.

You can go to your favorite realtor site and search for homes in the 78201 zip code to see the homes in both the Monticello area and Fulton Avenue.

I would suggest you try looking just East of the area Montirob is speaking of. Try East of Fredricksburg from where Calaveras crosses to North to Hildebrand. There are lots or really nice smaller Spanish style homes and judging from the appearance of the homes, pretty decent neighborhoods.
