Waco homes for big families | Local News

We’re thrilled to share an advanced, “insiders” look at this spectacular, Central Texas estate property which is quite aptly called: “Heaven on Earth”. — Sure, this might seem like a bit of an overstatement, but in our experience, no other property in Central Texas captivates the imagination, offers such private retreat, or seems to provide the perfect measure of nearly everything (square footage, acreage, workshop size, outbuildings, and even income potential); as does this truly distinctive, one of a kind Robinson area property. — At first encounter, the treed approach shelters the property from sight and sound, yielding a uniquely effective natural barrier resulting in a feeling of paramount seclusion and privacy. but once through the property’s coded gate, the meandering drive opens to beautiful native pasture dotted with trees across its lovely, rolling topography. Tucked at the back of the property, the private lake is seen in glimpses, occasionally, adding to the intrigue and beauty of the nearly 30-acre property. — Upon arrival to the home, the sprawling wrap around porches extend a warm welcome, inviting all to slow down and enjoy the scenery. Here the property’s nearly perpetual breeze whispers through the trees as the outstanding scenery, majestic lake views, and the picture-perfect landscapes are as enticing as they are pleasant. — Inside what must be THE quintessential farmhouse, rooms are light, bright, and airy; perfectly blending an air of casual elegance while remaining true to the homes original intent and character showcasing practicality and usefulness. A bit of a celebrity itself, the home benefited from a thorough reworking on the acclaimed Fixer Upper television show and has benefitted from recent upgrades to the roof, HVAC, geothermal system, irrigation system, and cosmetic enhancements to the flooring and paint. — Well planned and perfectly executed, the homes 3,735 square feet offer superb, real-life practicality and flexibility across five bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a half bath. A uniquely open layout, large rooms run one to the next with a spacious living room opening to a giant dining room and gourmet, eat-in kitchen. — Two bedrooms on the ground floor yield an excellent guest bedroom option, complete with a half bath, or a fantastic option for a home office sitting adjacent to the primary suite which is super spacious and benefits from a separate dressing area off the main bathroom. — Upstairs, three bedrooms (or two bedrooms and a school room/playroom/media room) receive excellent natural light, afford loads of storage and closet space, and are just close enough to keep on eye on the kiddos, but just far enough away to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet. — Outside, what must be the crown jewel of the property, a private lake is shown through the trees with visibility from most of the home and deck. An outdoor enthusiasts dream, the lake holds Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Catfish, and even Crayfish. A swimming platform complete with outdoor kitchen allows for summertime swims and provides the perfect backdrop for family get-togethers and parties. Coastal hay pastures, abundant pecan trees and livestock amenities round out what must be seen in person to be appreciated. Its just amazing. Really, truly amazing. — Such an exclusive, well-rounded setting rarely comes available to the public market. Attendance of the Robinson Independent School District, convenient access to Waco, Temple, IH-35 and all nearby destinations (medical, university, and entertainment campuses) makes this exceptional property even more desirable. If you seek something special, really and truly special, this Heaven on Earth is well deserving of your consideration. Whether you’re in the market for a primary home, an occasional family retreat, or a savvy investment for corporate events of short-term rental (where the Fixer Upper connection will certainly pay dividends); this is surely your singular chance to acquire such a uniquely distinctive property.
