Inside The Stunning Homes Of HGTV Stars

Fans of HGTV's entertaining lineup love seeing the stunning homes and rooms shown, whether they're watching David Bromstad lead lottery winners on tours of their possible dream home or witnessing the outcome of hours of design, construction, and staging work on shows like "Flip or Flop" and "Love It or List It" — even though, from the viewers' perspective, dramatic transformations that take hours and hours of work appear before our very eyes within the span of 30 minutes to an hour.

But have you ever watched these shows and wondered what the HGTV stars' own homes look like? After all, if they've transformed the most basic spaces into swoon-worthy dream homes, we wonder: What have they done to their own residences? Well, wonder no more, because we've dug up info and photos (of course!) of the spaces some of our favorite HGTV hosts call home. Let's go inside the stunning homes of HGTV stars.

Flip or Flop's Tarek El Moussa and wife Heather made their flip their forever home

Apart from once living in his mom's garage and a tiny apartment during tough times, Tarek El Moussa of "Flip or Flop" has had some amazing homes, like the 6,300-square-foot Yorba Linda, California, house he and co-star and now ex-wife Christina Haack spent $1.5 million renovating, and his so-called "bachelor dad pad" in Costa Mesa, California (per House Beautiful).

In 2020, the HGTV star and his wife, Heather Rae El Moussa (née Young) purchased an oceanfront home in Newport Beach, California — which underwent a massive renovation — they share with daughter Taylor and son Brayden (via People). Interestingly, the couple didn't intend to live in the house. "Tarek originally bought it as a flip but then they decided to make it their new home," the couple's rep told People.

They showed off the rooftop deck with stunning views on Instagram. And, in a 2021 episode of "Flipping 101," the newlyweds showed off even more: the gorgeous black-and-white kitchen, family room with statement fireplace, and elegant dining room with wine cooler (via People). This is one flip that's no flop!

Christina Haack flipped when she saw her Southern California and Tennessee homes

Tarek El Moussa's ex-wife and "Flip or Flop" co-star, Christina Haack, has done her own real estate shopping. In 2021, the "Christina on the Coast" star laid out $2.5 million for a modern farmhouse in Tennessee, which she "fell in love" with, per People. The vacation property sits on 23 acres and includes a front porch with a swing, shiplap, wood beams, and a pool.

Later in 2021, she traded in the Newport Beach, California, home she formerly shared with now ex-husband Ant Anstead for $6 million (via Dirt) for an oceanfront property in an exclusive Dana Point, California, gated community. The $10.3 million Mediterranean-style masterpiece has five bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms, and 6,000 square feet of luxury all on a quarter-acre lot, per the New York Post. The open-concept house features wood beams, a white-and-walnut kitchen with two islands, and butler's pantry. The primary suite has a fireplace and a bathroom — with a soaking tub — fit for a queen. Other amenities include a movie theater, billiards room, pool, hot tub, and fire pit. And, like her ex's new digs, Haack's also has to-die-for views – and a rooftop deck.

Jonathan Scott's latest home rehab partner isn't his twin, but girlfriend Zooey Deschanel

We're used to "Property Brothers" star Jonathan Scott rehabbing homes alongside twin brother Drew Scott. But this time, the HGTV star has a new renovation partner: girlfriend Zooey Deschanel. In January 2022, the couple announced they were moving into the Brentwood, California, home they bought in July 2020 for $9.5 million after months and months of renovations, noted the New York Post.

In the July 7 issue of Scott's magazine, Reveal, the "Property Brothers" star shared an essay he wrote about the first time they laid eyes on the house: a 6,300-square-foot, Colonial-style house built in 1938 by well-known Los Angeles-area architect Gerard Colcord. Scott described the home as "magical" and its front lawn as "lush." The one-acre property features five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a swimming pool, tennis court, guest house, and gazebo. Inside is a sunny kitchen, study, sunroom, French doors, and primary suite with the second of two fireplaces. We can't wait to see the final reveal, which Scott said will be "beautiful, eclectic, and wonderfully unique" (via the New York Post).

The Property Brothers' Drew Scott and wife Linda renovated their own LA forever home

It turns out that Jonathan Scott's twin brother, Drew Scott, and his wife, Linda Phan, purchased a historic home similar to his twin brother's in 2018. According to Closer Weekly, the couple shelled out $2.3 million for their Tudor-style home of 4,409 square feet, located just west of downtown Los Angeles, which they, of course, extensively renovated to their liking — with help from brother Jonathan, obviously (and featured in HGTV's "Property Brothers at Home: Drew's Honeymoon House").

Inside the home is a number of bedrooms and bathrooms, along with a grand entrance, dramatic staircase, and stunning hardwood floors laid in a herringbone pattern. A white kitchen with "conservatory glass windows" and huge marble island, formal dining room, office, and craft room are just a few features. Out back is a dining terrace, with tile flooring and large table, that opens up to a large outdoor entertaining space, lounge area with seating, fireplace, and of course, a pool.

Chip and Joanna Gaines have fully fixed up their 40-acre Waco farmhouse

"Fixer Upper" stars Chip and Joanna Gaines are known for their cozy farmhouse style, so it's a given they come home to a stunning farmhouse of their own. Their renovated Waco, Texas, farmhouse — which sits on a whopping 40 acres — features a large front porch, gardens, greenhouse, chicken coops, and lots of land for their big family of seven. Inside the house is their signature shiplap, hardwood floors, black railings leading upstairs, tons of windows with black trim, and French doors throughout, per Closer Weekly.

The renovated living room space, complete with brick fireplace, vaulted ceiling, and wood beams, is the family's "new favorite room in the house," as Joanna says in the preview for "Fixer Upper: Welcome Home" (via People). The updated kitchen features a subway tile backsplash, white marble island, and newly-painted dark green cabinets. Of the cabinets, Joanna explained, "I just wanted the space to really evolve with the new addition and I just thought it was time for a change." 

Love It or List It star Hilary Farr is loving, not listing, her Toronto home

Since 2008, viewers have enjoyed watching designer Hilary Farr and her team transform homeowners' spaces on "Love It or List It," while realtor and co-star David Visentin searches for a new house with everything the homeowners want. According to Country Living, the HGTV series was filmed in Toronto — where Farr was born and currently lives — until moving to Raleigh, North Carolina, in 2014.

Farr has lived in her Toronto home since 1996, and though we imagine she's added her personal touch, the house, which she showed off to "Today," maintains much of its "classic design elements and charm" (per Closer Weekly), including an open layout, which Farr sometimes likes to close off with pocket doors. "I like the concept of open plan but I also like the idea of being able to close those spaces off," she explained to Heavy.

Farr's kitchen has dark wood cabinets and white countertops, with granite surface on the island. The backyard has an entertaining space with an apple tree Farr planted herself (per Closer Weekly). For someone who's always on the go, it sounds like Farr has a comfortable place to call home.

My Lottery Dream Home star David Bromstad finally has his own dream home in Florida

HGTV's David Bromstad, "Design Star" Season 1 winner and "My Lottery Dream Home" host, had put off finding his own dream home for a while. As he told the Orlando Sentinel in January 2020, he was "so busy finding everyone their dream home, I'm neglecting my own."

In 2021, the Minnesota native, now based in Orlando, Florida, after living in Miami for 12 years, was finally ready to search with an open mind. In July 2021, HGTV aired "My Lottery Dream Home: David's Dream Home," in which Bromstad, accompanied by a close friend, stepped into his clients' shoes and "found a house" that "hit me hard," per HGTV. He plans to put "lots of David Bromstad touches" on the five-bedroom, four-bathroom, Tudor-style home, per Though the $950,000 price point was above his expectations, the kitchen and backyard oasis with pool, outdoor kitchen, and guest house ultimately won him over. "It felt like home," he says in the episode.

In December 2021, viewers got to see Bromstad and his sisters help him get the place holiday-ready in HGTV's "My Lottery Dream Home: Holiday Extravaganza."

Alison Victoria sold her high-end Windy City home for more than 2 million

Alison Victoria Gramenos, known as Alison Victoria, turns historic downtown Chicago homes into high-end masterpieces on HGTV's "Windy City Rehab," and called a five-bedroom, five-bathroom house in the city her home, noted the Chicago Tribune.

In 2019, Victoria showed off the 5,025 square-foot home, describing its custom European touches and explaining how she combined old and new elements. The home features two custom fireplaces and a showpiece marble kitchen, including a large island with waterfall edge and gold range hood, of which she remarked on Instagram, "Waking up to this beauty never gets old." The second floor is home to a luxurious primary suite with marble bath, while the lower level includes an exercise room and home theater (per the Chicago Tribune).

Surprisingly, she listed it in September 2020 for $2.29 million, selling it about a year later for $2.15 million. The property was, at one point, taken off the market because of a pending lawsuit. You might remember these lawsuits led to a falling out between Victoria and former business partner and friend Donovan Eckhardt in Season 2. No word on where the designer lives now.

Jasmine Roth sold the California home she built for a new SoCal address

Jasmine Roth of HGTV's "Help! I Wrecked My House" and "Hidden Potential" shared the story of her new house with HGTV. In August 2020, she, husband Brett Roth, and daughter Hazel moved in after three years of working on it. The Huntington Beach, California, pad has a cool, slightly retro brown facade that pops against its white trim.

Roth explained her desire "to create a cheerful, whimsical home" for her daughter, whom she had while building the house. Inside are multiple fireplaces, a unique word search design on a wall leading upstairs, and a white-and-light oak kitchen with open shelving and part-granite, part-wood island. The game room features a secret "speakeasy-style wine room" behind the bookcase, though her favorite part is the 3D wood accent wall in her bedroom.

The house is located only a few blocks from her old one, which she showed off in 2017, five years after building it. Prior to selling the 2,875 square-foot, three-bedroom space for $2.21 million in January 2021, the Roths temporarily listed the house on Airbnb because she couldn't seem to part with it completely, according to

Erin and Ben Napier landed their hit show Home Town after their home was featured in a magazine

In 2014, Erin and Ben Napier's Laurel, Mississippi, home was featured in Southern Weddings magazine. Soon after, they landed their hit HGTV show, "Home Town," which led to the spinoff "Home Town Takeover," a furniture line, two retail stores, and a book. "We never expected this," Erin said in an interview with People. "Getting a TV show never even crossed our minds."

So, what exactly is so special about the couple's 1925 craftsman cottage that it caught the attention of HGTV producers? Apparently, a lot. The two-story cottage, which Closer Weekly describes as "breathtaking," includes a study, dining room (with a wood table made by Ben himself), cozy living room with built-in bookcase, and kitchen with both light wood and dark wood cabinets. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a Jack-and-Jill-style bathroom. Our favorite part, though, is the huge front porch, where the couple and their daughters love to relax after a long day.

Mina Starsiak Hawk's personally-built Indiana home surely has 'good bones'

In 2018, Mina Starsiak Hawk, star of HGTV's "Good Bones," was ready for a larger home for her growing family with husband Stephen Hawk (per HGTV). So, they bought the empty lot next door to their house in Fountain Square, Indiana, the neighborhood where they renovate homes. "The neighborhood is our home," Mina told HGTV. "I really can't imagine living anywhere else."

The three-story, 2,900 square-foot house was inspired by the couple's love for Charleston, South Carolina, with architectural details like "big columns, large balconies, porch fans and black iron fencing" (per HGTV). The impressive ornate iron gate out front sets the tone, beyond which sits the white house with black trim and welcoming front porch. The main floor features engineered vinyl plank flooring with herringbone design, turquoise velvet dining room chairs, and white marble kitchen with island, stainless appliances, farmhouse sink, and custom range hood.

Upstairs are several bedrooms, including the nursery and primary suite — complete with a sitting area, bathroom with walk-in shower, and large walk-in closet. Plus, there's a gym, office, doggie spa (yes, you read that right!), and backyard with lounge and dining spaces. "I feel like [she] thought of every detail," Stephen said. "It's perfect."

Boybander Jonathan Knight lives on a farm and renovates old New England farmhouses

Surprised to see Jonathan Knight of New Kids on the Block hosting "Farmhouse Fixer" on HGTV? You're not alone. However, Knight is not new to country life — he grew up on a large property with lots of animals (per the Boston Herald). After NKOTB split up in 1994, "a friend asked if I'd flip a house with him," Knight told Architectural Digest. This led to more flips and new construction, but he longed to renovate "older houses with character and history" and, once he did, fell in love. "Restoring the American farmhouse is ... my passion, my obsession," Knight summed it up to People.

When not touring with NKOTB, Knight lives on his Massachusetts farm. "My mom had a two-bedroom farmhouse and couldn't care for all the land anymore, so we snatched up her house then bought two across the street — mom's in one and my sister's in another," he explained. The compound also includes a restored 1700s-era barn used for family gatherings (via Closer Weekly), greenhouse, and gardens. Per The New York Times, the house where Knight resides with longtime partner Harley Rodriguez — until their new house is finished – has dark hardwood floors, deep blue walls, and a white kitchen with windows galore (via Closer Weekly). 

Designers Nate and Jeremiah realized there's no place like home in New York City

Designers Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent moved from New York to Los Angeles in 2015, where they purchased a six-bedroom, seven-bathroom, 9,000-square-foot historic Spanish Colonial they updated with antique marble flooring and new kitchen surfaces (a gorgeous black marble) and fixtures, among other updates, to align with their "very clean, masculine look," per Architectural Digest.

Only two years later, they sold it for $11.5 million (via Dirt) and headed back to New York — as Brent told Architectural Digest, "It didn't feel like us" – where they settled in a 3,400-square-foot West Village townhouse. Standout features include the two-story, white oak bookcase, kitchen with exquisite Calacatta marble surfaces, "master dressing room," and outdoor terrace and courtyard with French fountain.

Then, in 2021, People confirmed the HGTV stars were moving again — they sold the place for $13.5 million and repurchased the Fifth Avenue NYC townhouse they sold in 2015, as revealed in "The Nate & Jeremiah Home Project" season finale (via People). While still early, we expect they'll work their designer magic again. Additionally, the couple own a Montauk, New York, beach house they presented to People in December 2020.

HGTV's Scott McGillivray moved his family into their huge custom-built Canadian home in 2017

In 2017, Scott McGillivray of HGTV's "Vacation House Rules" shared a tour of his then-brand new Canadian digs to Country Living. The glam house — featured in his HGTV Canada series "Moving the McGillivrays" — includes a white kitchen with two espresso islands, two-story living room with fireplace and tall windows, and primary bedroom with balcony, sitting area, fireplace, luxurious bath, and the walk-in closet of all walk-in closets (we're serious).

Other notable features are the "femme den" (which McGillivray specially designed for his wife), workshop, playroom, in-law suite, home theater, and expansive outdoor patio with pergola. Of the space, McGillivray writes in his blog, he couldn't be happier, because he's "in my dream house, in my dream neighborhood, with the people I love the most."

When the McGillivrays feel like getting away, they can do so at their vacation home in Estero, Florida, which they bought in 2013 (per the Tampa Bay Times).

Dave and Jenny Marrs of Fixer to Fabulous live a fabulous life in their Arkansas farmhouse

"Fixer to Fabulous" stars Dave and Jenny Marrs were new to home renovation in Arkansas when they toured an old farmhouse in desperate need of a facelift. The only problem? The property was being turned into a parking lot, so they had to move the house! The solution? Moving the house to the empty lot they had purchased nearby before getting to work on their future home, as their blog noted.

Five kids, a blueberry farm, and an HGTV show later, they've firmly established their roots, and love helping others experience the same joy. The farmhouse later underwent another renovation after expanding their family again — with a new laundry room with gray cabinets, reconfigured kitchen, remodeled guest bathroom, and nursery, per their website. Other features include hardwood floors, shiplap, wood beams, and neutral kitchen with open shelving and partial marble backsplash — not to mention, a large front porch and variety of animals. "We love this quirky, old home with all of [its] odd angles and nooks," Jenny writes on their website. "I couldn't imagine life anywhere but right here on the farm."
