HGTV's popular Evangelical Christian "Fixer Upper" stars Chip and Joanna Gaines recently purchased this classical revival home in Waco, Texas.  This dynamic design duo currently resides in Waco with their four children and plethora of dogs, cats, goats, chickens and various other animlas.  The Gaines family has not promised to feature this glorious abode on their hit series, however realtors and viewers alike are hopeful for a glimpse of Joanna's creative design touches throughout this beautiful abode.  

Chip and "Jo-Jo" are currently residing in a completey rennovated farmhouse, their ultimate labor of love, in Waco.  They are undecided  what they will do with their latest real estate acquisition.....or should we say TO their new home?   

This amazing new residence represents 4,831 square feet of southern beauty.  

Gleaming hardwoods glisten in a spacious foyer greated by Greek columns leading to  large living and dining spaces with French doors and custom built-ins.  Ironically enough, the Gaines family will not be utilizing the built-ins for a television as they do not own one.  

The glorious county kitchen offers large counter tops, a spacious center island, topped with an ornate recessed ceiling.  

The high-ceilinged, wood-paneled study is home to a cozy fireplace.

Two large porches provide shade for enjoying tea outdoors.


Former owners, Garry and Jane Dossey, state the 110 year old home will need some care, but they are confident in the abilities of Chip and Joanna.  

There is a priviate cottage on the grounds for guests complete with a fireplace and kitchen.  

The home was listed at $525,000 last year, however the price was reduced to $498,000 this year.  The final sale price is unknown.
