Description

A Waco landmark revered for its French Gothic aesthetic, coveted Castle Heights area location, and livable yet architecturally significant construction; Wacos "other" castle home is as distinctive as it is charming. --- Were thrilled to share this rare and unique opportunity to acquire one of the most coveted homes in all of Central Texas! --- Steeped in rich history but benefiting from recent, thoughtful enhancements; superlative details, old and new, work in concert to showcase an old world feel that's supremely livable and modern whilst still maintaining an aesthetic true to the era. Constructed in 1931 by Jesse and Mattie McLendon, the original hallmark chevron front door, well crafted hardware, and fanciful millwork (supplied by the McLendon family hardware company) have all been retained and restored while the kitchen, primary suite, and exterior parking structure have been reimagined by locally renowned custom builders, The Alford Company. --- Featuring a true chef's kitchen at the western corner of the home, the eat-in space received high end appliances, custom cabinetry, and attractive fixtures which keep with the home's visual motif. With it's attached sitting area and direct passage to both the main floor half bath, walk in basement (which is the picture perfect wine cellar), and formal dining room; this area of the home is well suited to both entertaining and casual nights staying in. --- One of the more unique features of the home, the elevator descends from the second floor to the main floor in the dining room. When not in use, only the railing hint at it's presence while up or down, the formal space is large and accommodates all but the largest formal dining tables. --- At the front of the home, the grand foyer and salon greet entrants with the original, handsome slate floors. Large enough to house an entry table, but super cozy with the original light fixtures, spiraling staircase, and peeks into the other rooms; the foyer is the perfect room to hint and the allure within. Behind the foyer, the salon, currently used as a music room and office, is the most well lit room in the home with great views of the courtyard and guest home. Both rooms lead into the home's formal living room. Here, the decadent fireplace, original wooden ceiling, and leaded glass windows create an atmosphere that transports you to the finest of European estates. --- With nearly 3,800 square feet in the main home, the three spacious bedrooms are all housed upstairs, as is the traditional layout for homes of the period. The primary suite, which is large, even by modern standards, showcases oversized closets, luxury bath amenities, and isolation from the guest suites; making it a perfect retreat from the day to day. The guest bath, located at the opposite end of the home, is easily accessed by the adjoining bedroom and central guest bedroom; alike. Another wonderful update, a modern, spacious laundry room provides additional closet and shoe storage, ample folding space, and even has its own laundry space (a super rare feature in this neighborhood). --- Outside, stellar patio space, both covered and uncovered) has been created at just outside of the kitchen door. A pergola and entertainment center allows outdoor enjoyment of movies and sporting events while dual, uncovered patios are sublime when the weather is calling for all to be outdoors! --- At the back of the property, the a newly constructed, four car parking structure is finished in handsome cedar. Additional storage closets have been built into the back of the structure as well, so no tool or item will be without its place! Adjoining the parking structure, the 874 square foot guest house benefits from a lower level living area and affords an upstairs studio that's as cute as a button. Highly priced for its dual use as student rental and ultra rare short-term rental for Airbnb and VRBO; this prized feature is as practical as it is beneficial for resale! --- Unapologetically unique, sup
