Behold: one of the most beautiful and historically significant homes in Waco, Texas.

Built in 1885 by Wade Morrison, the original founder of Dr Pepper, the Folk Victorian-style estate at 1503 Washington Avenue flawlessly blends old world charm with modern aesthetics. And it can be yours for a cool $1.39 million.

Located just steps from the landmark Alico building, this 135-year old, 4,724-square-foot home was restored to its original glory in the early 2000's by Christian rock singer, David Crowder. Inside you'll find four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a huge state-of-the-art kitchen, and countless areas for lounging and entertaining alike.

The beauty continued outside where you're treated to a sleek, California-style pool, an oversize cabana with a full outdoor kitchen, and impeccable landscaping. Not to mention a large, cottage-style guest house that once served as Crowder's recording studio.

Trust us, you don't want to miss this tour!
