Just yesterday I was driving to a meeting in Tyler, Texas and as I was going through the Azalea District, I was reminded of how beautiful some of the older homes are in downtown Tyler. Let’s be honest, there are gorgeous older homes all over East Texas but some really spectacular ones located in Tyler like this one I found that is currently for sale on Troup Hwy. 

When I first saw the listing, I couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that this home is 89-years-old because it is in such great shape, obviously the previous owners took great care of this place. The exact address is 801 Troup Hwy in Tyler, TX 75701. It was built in 1933, and hasn’t been on the market for very long. Currently the asking price is $2,500,000 which is a lot of money but as you learn more about the house and look at the photos below you will see why that asking price doesn’t seem so absurd.
