Growing up in Lufkin I always knew there had to be something pretty special about this property at 1608 South First Street in Lufkin, Texas. It's right in the heart of things and reminds me that this area of Lufkin wasn't always auto parts stores and quick lubes.

This property is right across the street from O'Reily's and Grease Monkey. Driving by all you will see are trees and a low stone wall. The wall has a history all of its own and a story for another time.

It is right between the old Capital One Bank and Texas Muffler. If you lived there you could walk across the street to get to Dominos. It's also close to the radio station and I drive by it daily. Now that you have your bearings get ready for a price tag.

Historic Property Last Vestige Of Normal In A Busy Business District In Lufkin 

There are three houses on this property as far as I can tell. One stands out as a current main residence. It's a large 4 bedroom, 3 bath house built in 1977. There is also a pool.

It's the 15 acres of property in the heart of a busy business area that is the biggest expense. That much prime commercial real estate doesn't come cheap.

The listing price for the entire property is 1.8 million dollars. This has a ton of potential. It is being sold as-is, but they will subdivide.

Everyone in Lufkin hates to see change. It would be hard to see that long stone wall torn down and a strip mall put in its place. I guess that is the price of progress.

Alex McLeod of Brookshire Real Estate is the listing agent. The MLS number is 63972.
