Beautiful historic homes dot the landscape of Sunset Heights north of downtown El Paso, featuring a range of architectural styles.

A handful of those homes were designed by the noted architect Henry C. Trost of the famed architectural firm Trost & Trost. Among them is the historic Mathias residence, a 4,646 square foot 5-bedroom, 5 and a half bath multilevel house on a corner lot on Yandell.

Built in 1912 for Albert and Frieda Mathias and currently owned by Amparo Behrens, the home is on the market but has a contract pending on the condition the prospective new owner can get the zoning changed from residential to commercial within four months, according to an El Paso Inc. report. His plan is to turn it into a luxury bed and breakfast with small café.
