Chip and Joanna Gaines Bought an Actual Castle in Waco as Their Next Big Project


Throughout the years, Chip and Joanna Gaines have rehabbed their share of homes. But never have they attempted to reinvigorate a castle.

That is, until now.

According to local media reports, the former Fixer Upper couple recently purchased the historic Cottonland Castle in Waco.  The castle was listed at $425,000 and much like many of the projects that the Gaines’ have worked on in the past, this castle is in desperate need of some tender love and care.

While it’s a bit up in the air as to what the couple will do to the castle, a spokesperson for their Magnolia business says that the two have had their eye on the property for a long time and now plan to restore the 6,700 square foot stone castle.

The castle has a long history indeed, as original construction began all the way back in 1890 and completed in 1913. It has remained vacant for the past 20 years, a time in which the Gaines have attempted to purchase it a number of times.

And heck, if anyone deserves a castle, it’s these two.

The project now becomes one of many that the Gaines have currently taken on, including the creation alongside Discovery Networks for a brand new television network inspired by their brand.
