Dream Home Alert: This ‘Fixer Upper’ House Could Be Yours
Fixer Upper may have come to an end, but the legacy of Chip and Joanna Gaines lives on! Not only can you buy wares from the new parents of five in the form of their Hearth & Hand with Magnolia collection for Target, you can actually own one of the homes they renovated during their five-season stint on the show — if you have the cash flow!
Featured on the 12th episode of the show’s second season, the sprawling, 4,113 ft. space was the perfect pick for Chip and Joanna’s clients, the Fuchs, who had previously lived on a tropical island.
As fans of the show will recall, the renovation was a massive one: Not only did the husband-and-wife team completely revamp the home’s exterior, removing its bricks in favor of painted siding and adding a “face” in the form of a faux window balcony, the interior required a major overhaul, as well — the entire kitchen was relocated to accommodate a backyard view!
That’s right; in addition to decking the house’s eatery out with brand new windows, cabinets, countertops, and a backsplash, Joanna actually built a new space for it from a first-floor craft room.
As for the old kitchen, it became a workspace for the couple’s little ones, complete with a custom bench and table.
And that’s not all! Wooden staircases, which were obstructing the view of the 1.9-acre backyard, were swapped out for sleeker steel ones that allowed the homeowners to see the stunning backyard. And make no mistake: With its tiered landings, a brick retention wall (a feature realtor Bridge Realty of Waco, Texas, tells us was recently added) and wooded surroundings, it is stunning.
Bamboo flooring and French doors were installed within the newly designed space, and the fireplace resurfaced to create a more modern feel. In short, the four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home was all but gutted.
As Bridge Realty of Waco, Texas, shares, the owners have done even more work on the home since it was aired on the show in 2015. In addition to the retention wall, they also invested in landscaping exceeding $100K and a complete drainage system that allows rainfall to be redirected to the natural waterfall that’s situated in the backyard — you know, just to name a few.
