I'm a sucker for a lot of things. Historic homes and historic neighborhoods are two big ones, I'll say that up front.

That said, imagine my squeal of delight when I saw this absolutely outstanding, extensively remodeled, and blisteringly expensive historic home listed on my usual real estate website haunts.

Behold, the beautiful brick Colonial home of 2205 Julian Boulevard, listed at $1,200,000.

Here's the listing, if you need a point of reference. Velma Purdy with Keller Williams is the lucky agent to land this bona fide slice of Amarillo real estate. Why such a big deal? Let me give you a little background to work with.

Julian Boulevard Was Once....

An airfield runway.

No, really. If you've ever taken note of Julian Blvd's unique street directions, it should make perfect sense that this long double runway residential street was once the landing strip for Amarillo's very first (with immense historical significance) airport and flying field.

Here's a separate article if you're interested in reading more about Julian Boulevard's original incarnation.

Historic Homes of Julian Boulevard and the Bivins Neighborhood

The Bivins neighborhood of Amarillo is distinct from the stately and regal homes of Wolflin and Plemons Eakle. While the Bivins subdivision boasts more modern rows of homes, the regal row of homes that sprung up along the curbside of the former airfield runway are quite the sight to behold.

You'll be hard pressed to not let out an "ooooh" or even the tiniest "ahhh" at each home's unique and striking architectural design....and you'll definitely have audible praise for the stunning colonial home on Julian Boulevard that bears a hefty $1.2 price tag.
