If you love Chip and Joanna Gaines as much as we do, seeing glimpses of their stunning farmhouse on HGTV's Fixer Upper, has most likely left you wanting more. Their 1,700-square-foot Victorian home sits on 40 beautiful acres in Crawford, Texas, a suburb of Waco. When the couple isn't busy transforming fixer uppers for clients or working on exciting new projects for their business, this is the haven they call their own.

When the couple purchased their 1895 farmhouse in 2012, they (of course!) chose a fixer upper to update with classic country charm. The whole project took about a year and a half, but the home was worth the wait: What started of as a two bedroom home now accommodates a six-person family with an open layout on the main floor. Character details make sure the old home's story stays alive.

We wouldn't expect anything other than French doors for a Gaines' entryway. An inspiring motto sets the mood right when you walk inside.

Leave it to Joanna to create a space that takes your breath away the moment you step inside. Smart storage solutions pair with rustic finishings to make the space look inviting and open.

If you've ever watched , you know how sought after open layout first floors are.

Living Room, Dining Room, and Kitchen

Creating unity between rooms—which is often done by knocking down walls on the show—keeps your family members as close as possible. Plus, you'll never have to feel separated from your guests when it comes to entertaining.

A reclaimed wood table holds together the room's neutral but industrial color scheme, while repurposed shutters are quite the statement piece.

This classic white kitchen is full of farmhouse accents that add interest. Open shelving puts colorful pots on display as fun accent pieces. "It's the heart of the home for me," . "No matter how much is going on, I don't feel overwhelmed because the palette is very clean and fresh."

Joanna likes to plan a room around an "inspiration piece," and in a classic kitchen, it makes sense that she chose to make the island stand out. The kitchen island formerly was the communion table in an old church. "It is now the focal point and anchor for my kitchen," . "Once I determined where I wanted it, the rest of the kitchen fell in to place."

Sitting Room/Office

This room, which can double as an office, is mainly white but decorated with a mix of vintage finds like a delicate chandelier and interesting planters. Need proof? Just read the wall!

The sitting room is also home to one of the farmhouse's many showstoppers—this floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace that's beautiful in its rustic simplicity.

Master Bedroom

When Chip and Joanna aren't sleeping, their cozy bedroom offers them plenty of space to just relax when they need some respite from their busy schedules. Perhaps a little break from all of the animals Chip likes to bring home?!

While this room has many of the smart country design decisions we've seen throughout the home, we love its careful symmetry. Decorative side tables are precisely placed underneath tall windows, which bring in plenty of light on either side of the bed.

Girls' Bedroom

This airy space is fit for a princess—or the two Gaines daughters! These galvanized metal trays—which serve the function of more traditional nightstands—are sure to teach the Gaines' daughters how to repurpose flea-market finds at a young age.

It's no surprise that this is in the farmhouse. The custom-made bunk beds have enough room for when the boys want to have sleepovers. Plus, there's even a basketball hoop!

Boys' Bathroom

If you shared a bathroom with the rest of your family growing up, prepare yourself for this one: Both the girls and the boys have their own en suites!

While this adorable space is meant to be for the kids, Joanna utilized a playful design concept to decorate it like a local cafe, with plenty of detail paid to every square inch.

When Chip and Joanna upgraded their fixer upper, they finished off their attic, which increased square footage. The result is another sitting area, which will be perfect for when the kids want to invite their friends over as they get older.

Joanna also made good use of her new attic by creating two craft rooms. The space has plenty of storage thanks to handy built-ins, making it a great spot for this busy mom to work on her many projects.

Chip and Joanna's farmhouse sits on 40 acres, and while much of the land is dedicated to their farm (and 60 animals!), they also decided to have a quaint greenhouse and outdoor dining area. The rustic table set-up is perfect for family meals that overlook the farm, or entertaining larger groups of guests.

The Garden

If you've caught an episode of Fixer Upper, you've likely seen this enclosed garden area, where Joanna often takes her kids to help plant seedlings. It brings additional farmhouse style to the property, while keeping out any animals that are bound to be around.
