WACO, Texas (AP) – The latest residential project by Chip and Joanna Gaines is quite remarkable.

The Texan couple made famous by HGTV's "Fixer Upper" Home Improvement Salon was closed last week in the historic but run-down Cottonland Castle in Waco.

Magnolia, a Gaines company spokeswoman, said the couple had been admiring the castle for a long time and had already tried to buy it. The spokesman John Marsicano said that the couple had not yet defined specific plans for the property but that he intended to carry out the restoration of the castle.

The construction of the 6,700 square foot stone castle began in 1890 and was completed in 1913. It has been vacant for about 20 years despite efforts to renovate it.

The Waco Tribune-Herald reports that the castle was priced at $ 425,000, although the sale price was not revealed.
