Built in 1924 by J.B. Wilson and designed by Tyler architect J. H. Bothwell stands one of East Texas' most iconic and historic homes. Situated on almost an acre on the corner of College Avenue and Dobbs in the famed Azalea District this property exudes charm with the added benefit of modern amenities. Over the years different owners have enhanced the property from its' original design to include a very large family room open to the kitchen, an expanded back patio, and added a primary suite upstairs including a gorgeous bathroom and large sitting area with a wood burning fireplace. There are 3 additional bedrooms upstairs, 2 of which have large en-suite bathrooms. The home features a traditional floor plan with white oak floors and a center staircase flanked by large formals. A private sunroom sits to the east of the living room and adjacent to the lovely study. A gourmet kitchen with stone floors and granite countertops opens to the breakfast room and family room. Unique to this home is a basement with a full bathroom. There is a gated entrance on the East side of the property, leading to the garage, along with a beautifully appointed guest home atop the garage. The park-like grounds create the perfect backdrop for outdoor garden parties or throwing the football. If you are a chess player, you'll love the life size chess board. Mature trees and azaleas line the perimeter of the property softening the lot and adding tons of privacy. The home has been expertly curated to include modern design selections and period specific finishes with a nod to the property's rich history. Located 2 hours east of Dallas in the growing but infinitely charming city of Tyler, this home is destined to be one very lucky person's next home!
