Historic Home For Sale–Sayles Blvd. area - Abilene, Texas


I can’t wait to introduce you to my friend, Terrie! She is the cutest,

little ‘cupcake’ in the whole world! And sweet….I love her to pieces!


And will you check out her house? Isn’t it amazing! Trust me, it is!

I’ve spent many a day both inside and outside, upstairs, downstairs,

in the basement, on the back porch and my personal favorite, the front

porch. I can’t begin to describe how much fun it is to run around in this

house. It’s so Southern! I simply adore it! And you would too! And guess

what? IT’S FOR SALE!


This 1910 Greek Revival, sits on a double lot in the nicest historic

neighborhood. You know the kind of neighborhood I’m talking

about. Where neighbors feel comfortable to borrow a cup of sugar

visit and watch out for each other. Tree lined streets offer a

perfect place to walk and run. It’s simply amazing! It makes my

heart sing!


Entry with original wood floors and stained pocket doors.


The 2 fireplaces both have Tiger Oak mantels, marble and embossed

cast iron doors. Stained glass doors flank the fireplace and also in the full bath.

The heavily beamed ceilings are another beautiful feature.


The dining room is huge and has been the setting for many large



Terrie loves to cook and entertain and has updated this kitchen

into a cooks dream! Granite, stainless appliances, 5 burner

gas cook top, convection oven, warming drawer, ice maker, black

composite kitchen sink and a baking center with folding doors.


The eat in counter is a family favorite.

And just in case you haven’t noticed the hand painted red cabinets,

they are like a huge piece of useful art ( which I had a great time painting)!


And behind the painted cabinets, you’ll find a second set of stairs

that will take you upstairs to 3 bedrooms and 2 baths.


The Master Suite has it’s own bath, walk-in closets and private balcony.

The remaining bedrooms are spacious with closets and share a large

hall bath.


The screened-in back porch, like the entire home is oozing with

charm! Beyond the screen door is a large back yard and detached

2 car, plus storage. Oh! I almost forgot. It has a basement!!!


Terrie, a woman of beauty, has turned the 100 year

old house into a beautiful, inviting and livable home while enhancing

it’s character and charm. This big old home will be missed, but instead of getting

teary-eyed, I’ll thank God for bringing another family to live and love here.

Adding to the home’s long history and making their own fun memories!
