One of the most special, custom homes in North Waco, located on a quiet, tree-covered street built for a member of the Scott family In the Scottwood development. It’s located uphill off Lakeshore Drive and 19th Street just across from McLennan College, Lake Waco, and a straight shot to TSTC, the airport, I-35 and downtown. This is a one-owner, 2,796 square foot home, and this special development is isolated, protected and surrounded by woods on all sides. The circling adjacent street and Scottwood Drive offer a great, secluded walking area, and there is a shaded neighbor-maintained walking trail in the woods, plus the MCC lighted, cushioned trail on campus just 3 blocks away. This home’s beautiful backyard is backed by 13 acres of densely treed woods. It’s a 100’x180’ beautiful property with seemingly endless woods as a backyard, viewed by 60 feet of floor-to-ceiling 33-inch pane windows across the entire back of the home from the master bedroom, across the 13’ glass-vaulted den and adjacent kitchen, to the family/playroom, which all open with sliding doors to the patio area which extends 80 feet across the entire width of the home. The 14’x22’ family/playroom has one wall filled with floor-to-ceiling storage cabinets that have hidden touch-latches and hinges, making them appear as a matching wall. The walls are pecan, variable-sized, plank paneling. It’s a 4-bedroom home with 2-1/2 baths with storage cabinets galore, especially in the bathrooms. Three bedrooms have built-in desks and the fourth with built-in clothes’ drawers. Two of the baths have large walk-in showers uniquely combined with a separate tub alongside which allows a huge area for separate showering and/or bathing. All marble vanity tops in the baths. Kitchen is U-shaped for 4-sided convenient access to the cabinets, stoves, appliances, pantry, and the long counter tops, with a serving bar that feeds into the breakfast area. All granite surfaces with a sliding 5-foot window, flush with the countertop for serving out onto the patio bar and the adjacent large outdoor natural gas grill. Lots of cabinets which are walnut-finished hardwood. Large utility room with stainless steel sink, cabinets, under and overhead, clothes hanging bar and clothes folding area, with a hidden convenient toilet serving this busy area of the house, also making this room into a half bath. There are hardwood floors and new carpet throughout the house. The house and fireplace are classic Chicago “used brick”. The fireplace is natural gas jetted for either gas logs or wood burning. The vaulted den is suspended with huge rough-cedar beams and the floor length windows are recessed and framed in rough cedar also, a perfect match for the wooded backyard setting. The walls are a multi-dimensional, walnut plank paneling. There is a portable 6’x12’ portable clear polycarbonate greenhouse that attaches to the house for winter storage of outdoor plants and is removable and stored flat on the garage wall in the warmer three seasons. The back yard is highly lighted by 10 floodlights on a light bar suspended and out-of-sight above the roof. The 609 square foot, double garage and storage is brightly lighted, and the concrete floor is covered with the Hammerjax, epoxy-blend, lifetime coating. There is a pull-down stairway to the floored attic above the garage that is LED lighted with walkabout-height for lots of storage. The house is also all LED lighted for cool, low cost, efficient illumination. Lots of canned lights with dimmers for displaying art, accenting walls, and varying mood settings. A truly custom home with design features that remain current.
