    Description

    Now is your chance to own Wacos famed "Stockbroker Tudor which is steeped in Waco history as the birthplace of the Junior League of Waco! With its distinctive, grand, street side stature, soaring gables, multiple chimneys, and mullioned windows; this quintessential, historically significant post-war Tudor Revival can be acquired for much, much less than you might expect! Originally constructed in 1924 by J.F. Carson, the home was penned by noted Waco architect Birch D. Easterwood (who also designed landmarks synonymous with Waco and Baylor University such as Pat Neff Hall, Brooks Hall, and the Tidwell Bible Building) for homeowners Woodlief and Margaret Barclay. At the time of completion, the home was only the second to be constructed on the block and was one of the first homes built in Wacos storied Provident neighborhood. Acclaim for the homes architectural prominence was nearly immediate, post construction, as a feature story in the home and garden issue of the "Waco Chamber of Commerce News detailed its impressive attributes, inside and out. Some years later, the homeowners daughter, Mrs. Barclay Megarity, "invited a group of women to her home for the purpose of discussing the establishment of an organization developed for public service, one which could fill the need among themselves and other young women for a better understanding of their community and its problems. That meeting, held on 12 December 1935, launched what is now the Junior League of Waco. Today, the home stands in largely original condition with much of the original millwork, plaster detailing, leaded glass, and wooden doors undisturbed. Updates to the roof, HVAC systems, water heater, basement, and kitchen were performed over time. Upon entry, visitors are greeted by the homes magnificent vestibule. Perfect for the display of your favorite antiques (really, the entire home is), this gathering area ushers all into the large foyer which houses the homes grand staircase. Flanked by the formal living room and formal dining room, this central point of the home also leads to a downstairs, full bathroom and entrance to the basement whilst acting as a passage way to the kitchen and breakfast areas (should one wish to bypass the formal dining room). What was likely a former sleeping porch rests behind the formal living room fireplace and is well suited as a room for pets (it features its own exterior door), a quiet sitting area, or even an office! Upstairs, three bedrooms and a sitting area await all comers. The master suite, complete with its own front and rear sitting areas and fireplace, is both generous and well lit. A second sleeping porch affords another office opportunity or use as a nursery or work out space. Four closets provide better than expected storage for a home of this era while the master bathroom is also larger than one may expect for a home of this vintage.Across the second-floor siting area, two bedrooms sit opposed to a Jack and Jill bathroom thats also larger than expected. With multiple closets, large, leaded glass windows, and solid plaster walls; the spaces are private, relaxed, and offer exceptional accommodation for children and guests. Outside, recent gravel improvements and concrete patios are ready to be enjoyed while providing expansive opportunities to make the home your own. The large, fenced yard adjoins an alley way while the oversized carriage house could easily convert to a three-car garage or provide its current two car setup plus workshop space. Upstairs, a true, one bedroom apartment needs a bit of elbow grease, but it could easily become THE AirBnB destination of Waco, an excellent home office, mother in law space, or even longer term rental for graduate students (all popular options throughout the area). Finding a remarkable home in Waco has proven difficult for some time given the scarcity of options, lack of neighborhood integrity, and lack of architectura
