Count on the Duggars for an Amazing Renovation as They List a Mansion for $1.8 Million
Anyone who loves reality TV show knows who the Duggar family is. Jim Bob and his wife Michelle Duggar became household names when they reigned supreme in TLC with their reality show “19 Kids and Counting,” which is about their growing family and their life as devout Baptists. Because of its success, with an average viewership of 2.3 million per new episode, the show ran for 10 seasons from 2008 totaling 229 episodes, including special telecasts before it was canceled in 2015.
The family pretty much grew in the eyes of their viewers, but having a series focused in their personal lives is not just their only source of income — the Duggars are also big in real estate. In fact, even before their reality series started, the heads of the household have been dealing in the world of property and both are actually licensed agents, and one of their best flip-overs yet is on market right now for $1.8 million.
Trashed to Treasure
According to reports, Jim Bob and Michelle purchased this 10,000-square-foot property for only $230,000, which was pretty much dilapidated when the reality TV couple first bought the Springdale, Arkansas-property. Fans of the show even pointed out in Reddit that the house was the one they toured in the show and even described the house beautiful but terrifying because it was trashed.
From being trashed to an architectural treasure, the circular house, which was modeled to one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s roundhouses, was built in the late 60s. On the outside, you’ll be amazed by the brickwork on the circular wall surrounding the house as it sits on a parklike land measuring up to 2.7 acres.
Variety of Textures
While the outside looks firm and frigid, with its vertical wall panels and original walnut doors, the inside looks warm and homey, perfect for big families. It has an open layout in the living room, dining, and kitchen area with an adjacent spacious patio. There is also a variety of textures in the interior with the combination of exposed brick walls, Vermont slate tile floors, and tongue-and-groove ceilings made from walnut wood.
Aside from the open layout kitchen, the four-bedroom house with 5.5 baths also boasts three other kitchens, which are remodeled with granite countertops and backsplash, new cupboards, plumbing fixtures, custom LED lighting, and new appliance.
Although the house also has an elevator, you’ll be astonished by its spiral staircase with exceptional woodwork. Apart from that, it also features a home theater and a 3,500-square-foot heated and cooled garage. Among the four rooms is a master bedroom with an ensuite bath. The master bath is updated with a stand-alone tub and shower, new granite countertops, and a newly installed toilet.
From being an eye-sore to eye-popping, it’s no surprise that the median listing price for the property is almost at $200,000. It’s quite steep for the location but with its renovation, livable space area, sizable lawn and unique architectural features, it definitely stands out in the area.
