I am a Realtor who really understands the appeal of Tech Terrace and other 'mature' neighborhoods such as Rush and Overton. Many of my colleagues don't get it, can't understand why anyone would pay as much for an OLD home as they would a new house. If you get it...and want to buy or sell a home in Tech Terrace, Rush or Overton, give me a shout.
Having lived on the corner of 22nd and Hartford for 5 years, I know the neighborhood. I have friends there who I stay in contact with. I miss our 22nd Street house. Tech Terrace is an awesome neighborhood and we really enjoyed renovating our bungalow. Though we have moved on, it is still in my top three neighborhoods in Lubbock.
I recently had the privilege of showing the home at 3009 19th Street. What a grand home in near immaculate condition. This Tudor Revival style home was built in 1939 and is just across the street from Texas Tech University. It features and arched quoin entryway, casement windows, half timbered gable with herringbone brick. With two bedrooms up and one down, three living areas, and a good sized basement, this home has space and style. Priced at $399,500.00 it is probably the best buy on 19th Street to come along in a good while. I'd love to show it and sell it. Contact me if you are interested.
