Description

Welcome to a piece of architectural history nestled in the heart of Waco, Texas " a home designed by the renowned architect O'Neil Ford and built in 1978 for the Canning family. For the first time ever, this stunning residence is available for purchase, offering a rare opportunity to own a piece of Ford's legacy.Set amidst the serene landscape of a Waco hillside, the home is situated perfectly on the grounds to almost disappear when viewed from the street, however, from inside it affords tranquil views of Lake Waco and mature trees. As you approach, you're greeted by a material-rich masterpiece, showcasing Ford's signature mid-century style with organic materials of wood, stone and glass. A standing seam roof, floor-to-ceiling windows and striking stone fireplace are further characteristic features seen in his designs.Wide-planked loblolly pine flooring, reclaimed from an old cotton gin, whispers stories of generations past with its hard-worn grooves and markings. Every corner of the home offers glimpses of the surrounding natural beauty, with lake and wooded views visible from almost every window.The home remains true to O'Neil Ford's original vision, with meticulous attention to detail evident in every aspect of its design. The front doors, crafted by Ford's brother, Lynn Ford, are a testament to the artisanal craftsmanship that defines this residence. Despite their weightiness, they swivel effortlessly on their original hardware, inviting you into a world of timeless elegance.Throughout the home, ceramic light fixtures, custom-designed by Martha and Beau Mood (and presently highly collectible), serve as both functional illuminators and exquisite works of art. Their muted colors and handcrafted textures add an organic warmth to the space, complementing the natural surroundings.In the living area, segmental arches in the ceiling, created with a tight pattern of parallel laths, create a sense of airy spaciousness, while Saltillo tiles brighten the kitchen and baths, infusing each room with rustic charm. Outside, the intricately designed brick driveway doubles as an exterior art piece, further enhancing the home's curb appeal. Additionally, the property affords direct lake access which is not only rare but also highly sought after and greatly increases the intrinsic value of this magical property.Perched high above Lake Waco, the potential for panoramic views is unmatched, offering a glimpse into the endless possibilities this property holds. With its impeccable provenance and untouched original condition, this home is not just a place to live, but a piece of history waiting to be cherished by its next fortunate owner.
