Ahh Waco, where do we begin. As the home of the Baylor Bears and HGTV’s hit sensation Fixer Upper, there’s a lot to love about Waco – and it’s not just the cupcakes dished out at Magnolia Table. Waco is a Central Texas city nestled along the beautiful Brazos River. It’s known for the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame, and a locally invented soft drink you probably have stocked in your fridge. Here’s looking at you Dr Pepper.
Attractions aside, it’s Waco’s affordable home prices, nationally ranked football team, and charming small town feel that makes it a great place to live. How far does a million dollars go in Waco you ask? Pretty far actually. Here we uncover two million-dollar-beauties, each with great bones and desirable locations, but interiors that would make for one hell of a fixer upper. Ready to take the plunge? These properties are a great place to start.
Lakefront Estate Near Restaurants, Shops, And Sailgating For $995K
At this three-bedroom, three-bathroom home, you’ll feel like your living at a resort with its towering palm trees, sparkling pool, and outdoor kitchen cabana.
We love the fact this home is located right on the Brazos river and comes with its own private boat ramp and covered boat dock.
The property description reveals it’s, “just a short boat ride to restaurants, shops, concerts, and outdoor entertainment, along with popular sailgating at Baylor Stadium!” Yes, you read that right, sailgating, as in tailgating on a boat. You can learn all about Baylor’s newest tradition here.
Inside the loft-style home you’ll enjoy over 5,400 square feet of living and entertaining space marked by a huge great room with walls of glass looking out to the pool.
Generous beds and baths, a spacious and well-appointed kitchen, a loft and giant over sized game room mean you’ll have tons of versatile space to turn this listing into your dream home. It wouldn’t take much.
Envision it as an empty shell. Try looking past the seller’s personal touches and image your own. A fresh coat of paint plus a few interior updates, and you’ll have a luxury home your neighbors would be jealous of.
