Our home is located on the south west side of Whitney Lake on the end of a cul de sac. A wrap around deck provides a peaceful view of the lake and the canyons. 40 miles from Waco in the Texas Hill Country where limestone formations abound and the cliffs overlooking the lake provide a wonderful escape!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Paul is a native Texan, born in Arlington. Barbara is from Mpls., MN. Paul and Barbara have permanent residence in North Dallas. Paul is a graduate of Steven F. Austin University in Photo Journalism. Barbara is a graduate of the University of Texas Arlington in Interior Design.

Why the Owner Chose Morgan, TX, USA:
We are fans of Mid-Century Modern styles and fell in love with this home as soon as we toured it. Purchased from a former boot maker, we enjoyed the challenges of transforming this house from a craftsman's workshop to the cozy retreat it is today. We believe you'll enjoy the peaceful settings as much as we do!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Property is at the end of a cul-de-sac, private, quiet, and peaceful. The Canyons at Whitney is a small residential community that has a full time security guard that patrols daily and is a member of the volunteer fire department. Abundant hiking trails and are great for mountain biking. Great bird watching, plentiful wild life, and serene location. Lots of parking and very little traffic.
