When it comes to choosing a style of home, you might have a hard time balancing your desire for traditional details with your love of all things clean and modern. But you don’t have to choose! The real estate market is brimming with fabulous renovated, modern farmhouses.

According to Amy Huff, a Realtor at the center of it all in Waco, Texas, many buyers are attracted to this style thanks to Chip and Joanna Gaines’s renovations on “Fixer Upper.” But the desire for these clean and simple homes goes far beyond just fandom:

“I think people are incredibly drawn to the nostalgia—the wholesomeness of the idea of having a farmhouse, living on a farm, living that simple lifestyle,” Huff says.

Interested in living in a modern farmhouse of your own? Here are four of the best on the market:

Houston, Texas

5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms
3,415 square feet

Texas is known for its big ranches, so it’s not surprising that you’d find a spacious modern farmhouse for sale. Here in Houston, you can go big and go home with this 3,415-square-foot five-bedroom, four-bath home. It sits on a 9,400-plus-square-foot piece of property, too, if you want to expand. Built in the 1960s, updates like quartzite countertops and farmhouse trim finishes bring this traditional farmhouse look straight into the 2010s.

Edina, Minnesota

5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms
4,503 square feet

Less than a half-hour outside of Minneapolis-St. Paul is the town of Edina, Minnesota, where you will find this five-bedroom modern farmhouse built just last year. At a whopping 4,500 square feet, there is more than enough room to bring the in-laws. Modern updates like marble kitchen counters are balanced by fireplaces and pointed ceilings that evoke farm-fresh feelings.

Newcastle, California

3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms
2,041 square feet

Located in Newcastle, California, this three bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home is almost 30 years old, but looks like it was built just yesterday. The 2,000-square-foot home sits on five acres with a wrap around porch that provides an incredible view of horse stalls and an on-site artists cottage. Inside, there is an updated kitchen with farm-style copper sinks. Keys please!

Glenford, New York

3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms
1,876 square feet

If you’re a little more modern than you are farmhouse, this property brings you both—and a two-acre lot. Located in New York’s Ulster County—part of the Hudson Valley—this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom home has a modern geometrical flair. Inside the home, stone-colored tiles, a wood-burning stove, sliding barn doors, and original wood floors keep the traditional farmhouse look. They’re evened out with other modern touches such as Carrara marble-styled quartz countertops and stainless steel accents. Stone walls ride along the border of most of the property, which is located just a few minutes from Woodstock, New York. Oh, there’s a bright red barn on the property, too!
