We have lived in Florida for over four years now, but I still miss my home state of Texas. So when one of my longtime readers sent me this incredibly elegant 1940s home for sale in Tyler, Texas – known as The Rose Capital of the World – I immediately fell in love. The lady of the home clearly had exquisite taste, and it goes to show that classic, traditional decor never goes out of style. Even the kitchen, which appears to have been updated in the 1960s, remains incredibly chic! There is very little I would change about this beautiful home with its incredible architectural detail. Sadly, this treasure is already under contract, otherwise, I think we’d be moving tomorrow!
Thank you, Heather, for sharing the listing!! Located in Tyler’s historic Azalea District and built in 1947, this home features 5,135 square feet, 4 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms on almost one acre. I dream of buying a home just like this one day in such perfectly preserved and untouched condition. I would even want to keep the furnishings! What would you do to update?
