Chip and Joanna Gaines have found their latest big home renovation project: their own castle.
The “Fixer Upper” stars bought the Waco landmark Cottonland Castle, the Waco Tribune-Herald reported last week.
The 127-year-old home is 6,700 square feet and built from stone.
“For nearly two decades, Chip and Joanna have admired the property as a hallmark of the Castle Heights neighbourhood — they’ve even made past attempts to purchase it,” said John Marsicano, spokesperson for the Gaines’ firm Magnolia. “The property is an iconic piece of Waco’s history and while specific plans have not yet been determined, one thing is for certain: Their efforts will focus on fully completing the home’s long overdue and well-deserved restoration.”
The sale price hasn’t been disclosed but the most recent listing price had it at $425,000, though the Tribune-Herald reports renovation plans could cost between $600,000 and $1 million.
A camera crew have also reportedly been spotted entering the house, so “Fixer Upper” fans might be getting a personal tour at some point in the future.
