This remarkable home sits on 16 acres of Private land covered in Oak trees, private lake & native plants & flowers. Six of these acres are heavily wooded & perfect for a wildlife expedition. The property is nestled alongside the banks of a spring fed (20acre) bass filled lake, perfect for that trophy fish! Your stay will be enhanced with the following amenities:

Direct Tv Satellite
Flatscreen in livingroom
Tv's in master & family room
Apple TV- live streaming
DVD player
Fishing Equipment
Paddle board
Outdoor yard Games (croquet, corn hole, redneck golf)
Gas grill (builtin version coming soon)
Stocked fridge & pantry
Completely equiped kitchen

Conveniently located just 1 mile off I-35, only 9 miles from McLane Stadium & 10 miles from Magnolia Markets, "The Silos". Cameron Park, Cameron Park Zoo, Texas Rangers Museum, Dr Pepper Museum, Mayborn Museum, Brazos River & The Shops of River Square Center are all within a 15 minute drive.

This property was never occupied, as the precious Meek family was transferred out of state before they were able to occupy the home!! So sad but life happens. It remains almost identical to what aired on Season 3, episode 6 of the famous TV renovation show! You will certainly feel captivated by your surroundings both inside & outside of this incredible property.

*Please note, this land is in its natural form & has a great rugged terrain. The lake and tree covered areas are kept somewhat organic & are part of the nostalgia that makes the Barndominium experience so unique! Fishing, kayaking, lounge floating or just taking a dip in the lake are all welcomed. Just be aware that it doesn't have sandy white beaches so the banks may have some areas of high grass or floating Lilly-like pads, depending on the weather.

Waco has become a hotspot for travelers around the world. Not only is Central Texas popular because of its Famous "Fixer Upper" Couple, and the Magnolia Marketplace, it also has prestigious Baylor University & the new McLane stadium that sit along the banks of the Brazos River. Wether you're traveling with friends or family, you can enjoy dozens of world class activities like the hiking & biking Trails of Cameron Park, Cameron Park Zoo, Mammoth Site, Texas Ranger & Dr Pepper museums. You can also enjoy live outdoor concerts at the Indians Springs Park & Backyard Bar Stage & Grill. If nightlife is your fancy, Austin Ave is chocked full of local wine rooms & trendy bars, gourmet food as well as food trucks. The newly renovated Hippodrome Theatre is the new buzz, where you can eat, drink and enjoy live theatre or current box office hits. These are just the highlights of what Waco has to offer!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2016

About the owner: I am a Central Texas native who's always been passionate & enthusiastic about homes, design & unique destinations. Having local roots, I am thrilled to be enjoying running my own company where we do construction & renovation of properties locally. I not only Love what I do, but I love where I get to do it, right in the Heart of Central Texas. Although I wasn't involved in this project specifically, I'm honored to have been blessed with this magnificent property to share with my friends, family and extended community worldwide.

Why the Owner Chose Waco, TX, USA:
Although I had never seen this property in person, I too was mesmerized by the transformation I saw on the show. Although I knew the owners & the Gaines through our church, I never dreamed I would one day have the honor of purchasing it for myself. Just so happened that the Meek family (who did the show), were forced to relocate out of state before moving in. This gave me the opportunity to purchase it, with a stroke of luck, perfect timing & Gods grace, I was able to make this place my own! One day I hope to build a home on the land that is simply incredible!

The Unique Benefits at this Barn:
I immediately fell in love with the Barndominium on the show, however when I saw it in person, it was more spectacular than I had ever imagined!! With the magnificent 16 acres of land and spring-fed lake it sits up on, it's truly breathtaking. You just can't really appreciate it until you have see it personally. There is definitely something magical about this place and its no wonder Chip and Joann were ecstatic about the opportunity to transform this Barn. The lake, Im told, is filled with bass and catfish for those fishing enthusiast. The land is ideal for exploring nature and connecting with its creator. I am honored & blessed to call it mine & I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to share it with others. I am confidant you will share in my sentiments once your experience it firsthand.
