Description

Perhaps the most inspired residence in all of Wacotown, this exceptional, architecturally significant property leaves nothing to be desired inside or out! --- Penned by acclaimed Wacoan, Robert S. Bennett (whose own, personal residence was just down the street), the primary home recently underwent a comprehensive remodel which saw significant improvements and upgrades to all systems and all surfaces. Careful thought was given to preservation of the home's iconic aesthetic so as to draw inspiration from, but not completely reimagine, the impressive and original design language. In keeping with that tradition, enhancements were deliberate and intentional so that attention was paid in keeping with the true, mid-century modern language that's so revered and sought after (but ultra uncommon in Central Texas). --- The main residence, which is seemingly tucked into the hillside from the front entry, reveals boundless natural light from the homes floor to ceiling windows which span the entire back of the home. As part of the remodel, the central kitchen underwent the most dramatic transformation with its removal of walls, installation of beautiful book matched cabinetry and full array of chef approved Thermador appliances, and creation of the massive island which perfectly accommodates eat in capabilities. Not to be outdone by the glorious professional kitchen, the sunken living room is adorned with custom, period railing, and the homes bathrooms superbly strike a balance between beauty and function in settings which are easily confused with the most decadent of health spas. --- To further ameliorate the home's appeal, a 494 square foot casita was built from the ground up. Here, a full one bedroom, one bathroom guest home adds a full kitchen, laundry room, and living space which perfectly compliments the original home's 2,088 square foot, two bedroom, two bathroom layout. --- As if the elevated design and attractive material selections weren't enough, the homes setting, which can only be described as park like, might just be pice de resistance of the entire property. Tucked in a sleepy cul-de-sac, the sprawling 1.16 acre grounds benefit from abundant mature trees and a gently rolling topography reticent of New Yorks acclaimed Central Park. Appreciated best from the large, awning covered deck of the main home (another delightful upgrade curated by the former owner), this wonderful perch allows for delightful views of the grounds while seemingly elevating its occupants to a birds eye level amongst the leafy backyard retreat. --- In the past, turnkey, move in ready, and mid-century modern have all been mutually exclusive terms in Waco. Should you be fortunate enough to even find a true, mid-century modern aesthetic, that home is almost guaranteed to be original, rough, and in need of immediate investment just to make it habitable. Here, at what will surely become an icon of Waco homes, this is a residence which requires nothing but a caretaker with an appreciative eye and a vision for this remarkable home.
