OAK TREE COUNTRY MANOR
If you're craving beautiful country views, spectacular oak trees, and cool dips in the pool, this one's for you! This incredible 5,000 sq ft home is what country dreams are made of: space for the whole family, all your friends, and then some! Soak up breathtaking scenery and renew your soul; it's guaranteed to take up permanent residence in your mind, providing incredible memories, laughs, and love. Just a short and easy 17-minute drive to downtown, this is a stay for the record books.
Originally built in 1976 on 87 acres, this home is bursting with incredible history. One of Waco, Texas's own country music stars spent a lot of time in this home in his youth; his name is carved into the cement of the carport. It was later purchased by a couple who built the horse barn and had up to 80 Egyptian Arabian horses at one time. In '97, the publisher of the Waco Tribune Herald purchased the home and enjoyed the property for 14 years before the current owners bought the land, house, and guesthouse.
The main house is a sprawling 5,000 sq ft of pure delight. There's a large and spacious kitchen with a wonderful view of the pool outside. Two dining areas with two tables and space for a total of 12 seats. An inviting living area with a large TV and plenty of seating options/reading nooks. An adjoining game area with a pool table, couch, and a 65" smart TV. The den leads out to a massive 400-year-old oak tree that is so majestic you'll find yourself staring at its large reaching branches in pure amazement and wonder (it really is spectacular).
With 11 beds and a fold-out futon in the main house, there is plenty of space for all your favorites. The main house also features 4 full bathrooms, keeping the fights for showers at bay (hooray!).
The guesthouse is located just a short walk from the main house and can be rented for an extra charge. It's fully furnished with a large living area, a full kitchen, a queen bedroom, and a full shower/bath. Ample parking is provided for both homes, and a circular drive makes entering and exiting a breeze.
