The best of our career for sure. Thats how Chip Gaines described this 3,577-square-foot home featured on Season 4 of Fixer Upper.
Fully remodeled on the popular HGTV show, the home on 6 acres in Waco, TX, is now on the market for $645,000.
Chip dubbed the four-bedroom, three-bathroom, two-story home the Hot Sauce House, because of the startling Tabasco-themed wallpaper they found in one of the rooms.
On the episode, we see the Ignacio family pay $315,000 for the property, then budget $119,000 for Gaines-style renovations. The basic 90s ranch is soon transformed into a Rustic Italian Dream Home, which becomes the episode title.
In the kitchen, Chip and Joanna Gaines ripped out a wall and opened the space up to both a family room and dining area. Joanna added a huge island with a marble countertop as well as a backsplash with handmade tile. A double Sub-Zero refrigerator and new windows completed the kitchen makeover.
One of the biggest changes the Magnolia crew made created a luxurious living room in what had once been a garage.
The garage had been converted into a shoddy rec room that was basically a rectangular box with few windows and a low ceiling. Chip and Jo vaulted the ceiling and added rustic-looking beams as well as French doors to let more light into the space. They also installed a cabinet that looks like an Italian country armoire.
On the main floor, the Gaineses conceived a massive master bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, sliding barn door, and redone master bath with a free-standing tub and double vanities.
They also ripped ugly wallpaper, cheap beadboard, and chair railings off the walls. The walls were then redone with smooth white plaster for a bright, Tuscan look.
White plaster arches were added to the doorways to achieve the same effect. Gleaming hardwood floors now run throughout the house.
And to top it off, Chip got creative with the plumbing and added a charming half-bath in back, so the home now has 4.5 baths.
The Gaineses painted the exterior of the home a creamy white and added rustic wood shutters and matching front door. They also replaced the brick on the chimney and columns with stone. Outside, youll see horse facilities and a pool, which is currently covered.
But as pleased as the Ignacios seemed to be with the renovation, it didnt take them long to put the home up for sale. According to realtor.com records, the property was listed in 2017 for $1 million. The price has since been reduced and currently sits at $645,000.
The listing notes that the homes been listed an Airbnb and has shown a good history of rental income. Among the Waco homes remodeled by Chip and Jo, this one is more spacious than most.
Whether youd rather keep it to yourself or invest in an income opportunity, this stunner from Season 4 is waiting for an offer.
