Have you ever dreamed of living in a castle? Fans of “Fixer Upper” will be excited to see the work that comes out of Chip and Joanna Gaines’ recent purchase of Cottonland Castle. The Waco property can be found in the city’s Castle Heights neighborhood, and it’s actually quite striking, by anyone’s standards.

Despite a number of efforts to renovate the castle in the last two decades, it has sat vacant until now. Construction on this gorgeous piece of Texas history began in 1890 and took 23 years to finish. The purchase by the Gaines comes shortly after their announcement that they intended to open a coffee shop as part of their Magnolia kingdom. However, it’s unclear whether the castle will be the home of that concept. It presently consists of primary living space in addition to three bedrooms and three bathrooms, according to the realtor’s listing, with a total of 6,700 square feet.

The Gaines appear to have the Midas touch when it comes to home renovation gold, and we’re sure Cottonland Castle will be no exception.

A Magnolia company spokesman stated that the couple has long had an admiration for this prominent piece of property and, on prior occasions, made offers to purchase it. Recently, the Waco Tribune-Herald reported that Cottonland Castle was put up for sale at a list price of $425K. However, the sale price at which the Gaines purchased it has not been disclosed.
