                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1996

                      About the owner: I grew up in Austin, TX and graduated from UT Austin as a Petroleum Engineer. This home represents many happy memories – large family reunions, friends lounging by the pool, BBQ weekends, and peaceful evenings gazing at stars while warming by an open fire pit. There is nothing quite like the country air and a dose of Mother Nature to bring about a sense of peace and well-being. The landscape has much to view of Texas Hill Country. Some are even intrigued by nearby President Bush’s “Western” White House.

                      Why the Owner Chose Waco:
                      Secluded and peaceful. Located halfway between Austin and Dallas Ft Worth, east of Waco.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                      Peacefull nights, fresh air, and a starry sky make this an interesting retreat for family and friends to connect. Pool days and nights, family meals, and board games make for a family vacation to remember.
