This century-old gem combines classic elements from the art deco period with newly updated amenities for modern living. Remodeled in 2022 to include all-new electrical, plumbing, and more with stunning interior design; while still featuring many of the original elements that give this house so much charm. Located on one of Tyler’s favorite avenues, in a quaint neighborhood with brick streets lined with historic lamp posts and friendly neighbors. Recently re-districted to Legacy High School.
