Alpine Ski Chalet turns into Updated single family charmer...

Home Stager with Valesca Bogard

We walked into this project ready to make recommendations as to factors that may stand in the way of a sale. The starting point of our professional staging package. The good news, is that our (repeat) client did NOT shoot the messenger! sure to check out the final results. Beautiful !

Fireplace Before Renovation
Fireplace before Renovation ... flashback to be sure Does this remind you of a chalet you may have visited in the 70's?


aaaand look at this beautiful replacement...double sided fireplace, creates a division between the living room and great room

Fireplace after Renovation
Fireplace after Renovation - updated, beautiful and functional

Creative placement with a double sided fireplace, defining spaces for the living room and great room. A smart choice of upgrading and investment dollars.  See our blog on this delightful, family oriented property.  Contact us for listing information.

What a welcome change to replace that dated fireplace. It certainly will before appealing to buyers.

What a change that made! Wow. I, too, like how it separates the two rooms.

This photo reminds me of a home my family leased in Lake Tahoe one summer in the 1970's -- so chalet-like, you're right!  I love the new update and am sure buyers will too.

Thank you for the validation !

You should have heard the discussion as to varied options of restyling the round fireplace – planterbox? Simply resurfacing? Removing flue and creating a table with the base? So glad they went with the removal option !  

It is fun to walk memory lane, as styles from days gone by peek through...lots of interest in the property, now to hear it's SOLD :)
