1503 WASHINGTON AVENUE

Welcome to one of the most beautiful and historically significant homes in Waco. There is such a lavish attention to detail with this stunning estate. The home was built by Wade Morrison, the original founder of Dr. Pepper in 1885 and more recently restored to its former glory by music artist David Crowder. The current owners have held onto the architectural integrity and curated a work of art that blends Old World Charm with Modern Eclectic design. Two living spaces downstairs with gorgeous windows looking out onto the perfectly manicured lawns. A formal dining room that looks onto a private garden patio. The huge kitchen complete with Viking appliances, stained concrete countertops, an oversized island and cabinets going up to the 12 foot ceiling. Upstairs you will find 4 well sized bedrooms each with unique detailing. Upholstered walls, round corner edges, lovely tile work and the list goes on. The sunroom that sits at the top of the staircase is wall to wall windows and allows for a perfect view of the iconic Alico building at night. The large clean lined pool and spa highlight a yard that feels more like California than Texas. The tall walls provide total privacy and make you forget you can stroll right into downtown: the best of both worlds. The backyard cabana with fireplace and tv makes this home an easy place to gather with friends any time of year. The barn was previously used as David Crowder's recording studio and the current owners have kept those capabilities while renovating it into a cottage style guest house with 1 bedroom, living area, kitchen, bathroom and a stairway leading to another level that is currently being used as a state of the art home gym. The downstairs is also ideal for an office/studio space. There is another outbuilding with a two car garage and a game room in the upstairs space. You have to see this home to truly understand how special it is.
