Yesterday I posted one of my current favorite videos—a music video by the David Crowder Band that is truly a work of art in itself. Then a reader, a fellow Wacoan, told me that David Crowder’s house here in Waco is for sale! I admit, I’m a bit shocked that it’s for sale, because David and his wife Toni spent years lovingly and painstakingly renovating their historic home. Oh, how I wish I had an extra $1,000,000 burning a hole in my pocket!
This house’s claim to fame is that it was built in 1886 by Wade Morrison, the co-founder of Dr. Pepper. Yep, that’s right! Waco, Texas is the home of Dr. Pepper.
Anyway, here’s a glimpse into this pretty amazing historical home.
Really, all I needed to see were those turquoise front steps to instantly fall in love with this house! And with the large front porch, the columns, and the gorgeous windows, this house just oozes charm.
The dining room…obviously. This is probably my least favorite room of the home. It’s nice, but it just seems to be missing something.
This living room just looks so inviting. The love the worn textures, the colors. It looks perfectly aged. Do you know what I mean?
That living room is the room featured on the website for the David Crowder Band’s latest album, Church Music. It’s a really creative website, which you can see here.
This looks like a formal living room, but I’m not certain.
Isn’t this beautiful!? All of those windows! The ceiling!
This could easily be one of my favorite kitchens ever. Those large windows are just spectacular. And the ceiling is the icing on the cake. I can’t tell what the countertops are, but judging from the corner that is visible in the far left of the photo, my guess would be concrete.
Another view of the spacious kitchen. That kitchen alone is probably the size of my entire condo! I really like how the cabinets go all the way to the ceiling.
I love the fixtures used in this bathroom. But I can’t help but wonder why they didn’t put the toilet lid down before taking the picture!!! Do you find that distracting like I do?
I’m not sure if this is the master bedroom or a guest room. It’s a bit dark for my taste, but that chandelier and the windows are fantastic!!
I really love this bathroom—the wall color combined with the dark chocolate subway tiles. I wish we could see more of the vanity also. I really like the use of wood on the vanity. It makes me wonder if that was a piece of furniture repurposed as a vanity.
Another gorgeous wall color! And isn’t that a sweet little bed? I’d love to see more of that chandelier. It looks intriguing. But my favorite thing has to be that arched doorway in the hallway.
This is probably one of my favorite rooms. Isn’t that bed spectacular?! And of course, the colors used here are right up my alley.
I would assume that this is the master bathroom. I’m generally not a huge fan of marble floors, but I admit that there’s something about this room that I find very appealing. It has a grand, stately feel to it.
The entryway, looking into the kitchen. Again, the ceiling! Oh, how I’d love to have that ceiling.
This is the back of the house, with the little red barn that is original to the house.
This is another view of the back yard with the pool that I snagged off of the Waco Tribune Herald website. Interestingly, when the started excavating for the pool, they found a demolished house buried in the back yard! Things that make you go ‘Hmmmmm’.
I could imagine spending many, many hours in this cabana during the spring, summer, and fall months.
Isn’t this little red barn charming? It’s so picturesque and perfectly imperfect.
This is inside the barn…another one of those rooms that looks aged to perfection.
And this adorable little kitchen is also in the barn. I wonder if the floors are original. They certainly look aged and beautiful.
The barn also houses a recording studio.
And a quirky little bathroom with a silver toilet…again with the lid up. Seriously…that’s one of my pet peeves.
So there it is…a glimpse into a fully renovated historical home in my hometown of Waco, Texas. Have I made you want to move here? Well if you have a million dollars burning a hole in your pocket, come buy this incredible house! I happen to know a very talented interior decorator who could help you with the decorating!
