2828 AUSTIN AVENUE

More than just three bedrooms, two and a half baths, 2828 Austin Avenue is a connection to the history of Waco and is one of the homes featured in the book, Historic Homes of Waco, Texas. If these thick, concrete walls could talk, oh the stories they could tell of the visitors of the past. As it is, they just quiet all outside noises creating a respite inside. Only in a home that is almost a 100 years old do you have the opportunity to own original murals, oak, brick, and old growth pine flooring, unique archways, thick original oak doors, and a butlers pantry with an original staircase leading to the primary suite. Long ago the butler was called with a simple button or even through an original call tube, both still in place. The two guest bedrooms are extra large and connected by a Jack and Jill guest bath and both have access to an outside patio area. Up the stairs to the third floor is a large room perfect for a craft/hobby room or maybe a magical playroom. The primary suite has two separate vanity areas, walk in, glass door closet/dressing area, and very convenient laundry room facilities. Not to mention the primary bedroom is extra spacious with yet an additional closet, built-in shelving, and French door access to a private patio area. Add to the history of the home by entertaining your own guests in the grand formal living room warmed by lighting the fire in the elegant fireplace at one end or open the wall of French doors at the other end for an Al Fresco evening through to the back patio. A perfect home office and /or library is just off this grand living room. Walking through an arched doorway, take a moment to notice the original mural leading you to the formal dining room where light enters through diamond shaped leaded glass windows. Or continue to the octagonal breakfast room where you can, once again, enjoy an original mural on the ceiling. Outside is an oasis with beautiful shrubbery, hand built water fountains, and numerous old growth trees providing shade and a private feel. There is a two-car garage and automatic gated drive. Over the two-car garage is an income producing apartment that could also be utilized as additional guest quarters. This is truly a wonderful and unique opportunity.

What a joy it was to work with Stacy Clark. The process of buying a home can be scary and tedious but she always managed to make the journey smooth and effortless. Having lived in Waco all her life she was so familiar with this area and managed to locate the right place and type of home we were looking for. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is in the market for a home. She is very personable and professional and she makes you feel like you are the only client she has. – Dawn Duckett
