About Kristi Bass

I'm the mom of of 3 kiddos and almost empty nesting! I am locally grown & a Wacoan and this is also where I raised my family. I have seen the transformation of Waco from a sleepy lil college town to whats now one of the most highly sought after travel destinations in the country! Such a joy & blessing to have the opportunity to share my home & my love for this community with people from across the globe.

Kristi Bass purchased this house in 2017

Why Kristi Bass chose Waco

The Batson family, who were on Fixer Upper show, contacted me about their beloved home as they were wanting to expand their family & this sweet home would simply not accommodate another family member! Since I also own the Barndominium & share it also with guests traveling to Waco, this property was a perfect addition to my family.

What makes this house unique

This home is so charming and quaint! It has such a great open floor plan that you feel very connected from every room in the house. It has the same feel that captivated views on the show. The front and back porches are ideal for sitting or swinging and enjoying a quiet evening in Waco.

Charming home close to all things FIXER UPPER

  • 5 of 5

Booked this sweet home for a girls trip to tour the Silos and all things related to Magnolia Farms. It is just the right size with many of the original touches still inside. Plenty of sleeping room and a quite spacious bathroom. Stunning open concept main floor area. Staying here helped add to our experience in Waco. It is a short drive from here to all main attractions in and around Waco. Make sure to eat at The Magnolia Table and get there early to avoid the long wait. You won't be disappointed. Also, take the free trolley tour. You will learn so much about Waco. And last but not least, shop at some of the antique stores and find some treasures to take home. So much fun!

Quaint, cozy and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at "the little house" celebrating our daughter's graduation from Baylor. It was so much fun seeing all the Fixer Upper craftsmanship and Kristi's flair for decor. The home was very well equipped for our stay and comfortable. It is centrally located and close to everything you'll want to see in Waco. Our favorite part about the stay was relaxing on the gorgeous deck under the canopy of the beautiful old tree. From the beginning, Kristi was a joy to communicate with. I recommend this sweet house.
