People looking to move into a Chip and Joanna Gaines Fixer Upper original are in luck. Not only is this shotgun house and this ranch home currently for sale, but we got the exclusive that a modern abode from season four is the newest property to hit the market.
You might recognize the home from episode six, called in which a young couple and their son move to China Spring, Texas from Denver, Colorado in hopes of finding a slower pace of life.
The homeowners, Dean and Brittany Wixsom, said they were looking for a big yard and that a modern design was a must-have. Now that's hard to come by in Texas — which is where the Gaines come into play. They introduced the duo to a 2,731-square-foot home built in 1980 with four bedrooms and two baths. Even though it had tons of potential, the Wixsoms didn't see it at first, partly because it was as far from modern as you could get.
But since the and the homeowners had a total budget of $450,000, they trusted the Gaines to use the remaining $175,000 to turn the dated design into their dream home.
Gorgeous, no? The sliding glass doors near the entrance offer tons of flexibility, and are by far, the most unique feature in the house. When the homeowners want to close off the dining room or office they can, but the rest of the time they can enjoy an open layout.
The interior doors match the windows on the outside of the house, creating a cohesive industrial design. However, as for the focal point, it's clearly the faux concrete fireplace with a slanted cutout for firewood.
To be honest, the design is nothing like we normally see from Chip and Joanna, and that's a pleasant surprise.
The tree-lined property ended up offering the tranquil setting the homeowners were looking for, and the Gaines turned the inside into the modern dwelling they craved. But, sadly, life is taking the Wixsoms in another direction, which is why they're looking for someone to buy their home.
