Whether it's an old A-frame or a historic cabin, ski country comes with a lot of history. Some of it is worth preserving, while other parts (like that vintage 1970s rust carpet) is better left behind. In honor of Renovation Week, we've toured the best listings throughout ski country to bring you 10 stand out renovations. From a 1968 cabin in Lake Tahoe to an 1850-farmhouse in Stowe, Vermont, this is home renovation done right.
↑ Like many of Vail, Colorado's ski-in/ski-out properties, this 5-bedroom, 5-bath home was originally built in 1963, just one year after the resort opened. But the 5,291-square-foot home was recently completely remodeled and designer decorated, leaving little traces of the 1960s. Of course, given its prime location just steps from Gondola One and Vail Village, this remodeled gem will cost you $17,500,000.
↑ On the other end of the price spectrum, this $599,000, fully-renovated house in South Lake Tahoe shows that a lot can be done with a reasonable budget. Originally built in 1968, the 4-bedroom, 3-bath home is (per the listing) "completely remodeled with a new kitchen, bathrooms, flooring, windows, roof, fireplace, central heating system and beautiful redwood decks in both front and backyard."
↑ According to the listing, this 6-bedroom, 6-bath Aspen home originally built in 1978 was "recently renovated down to the studs in 2015." It boasts a spacious guest house and is asking $6,950,000.
↑ With 6 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, this Park City home wants $11,500,000 for its 8,825-square-feet. Originally built in 1994, the home kept its "alpine chalet" design but added radiant floor heating, snowmelt systems, custom cabinetry, a high-end kitchen, new floors, and plenty of stone finishes.
↑ Built in 2001, this 7-bedroom, 7-bath home in Jackson, Wyoming got the complete overhaul in 2013. Along with a sleek grey color scheme, the home got smart-tech upgrades like a NEST climate control system and SONUS sound system. In all, the 7,173-square-foot listing sits on 4.6 acres and asks $5,950,000.
↑ At only 1,497 square feet, this 2-bedroom, 3-bath house in Telluride, Colorado proves that big renovations can come in small packages. Asking $3,350,000 for its prime downtown location on a 7,000-square-foot lot, the historic cottage is believed to have been built sometime between 1908-1922. A 2001 renovation included custom cabinets, stamped tin ceilings, commercial grade kitchen equipment, and decks.
↑ In Stowe, Vermont, there's a lot of history in this 1850 village home, recently remodeled with an emphasis on classic New England charm. Not only is the 5-bedroom, 7-bath home located in the center of town, the $1,300,000 listing also boasts mountain views, a heated three car garage, and a huge patio for indoor-outdoor living.
↑ The outside of this home in Aspen's West End neighborhood looks traditional and historic. But the recently renovated inside is a delightful surprise, with contemporary styling, 4 bedrooms, and 6 bathrooms rounding out the 1910 home. All that renovated beauty doesn't come cheap in Aspen, however, as the list price is a steep $7,900,000.
↑ In downtown Jackson, Wyoming, this 5-bedroom, 4-bath home wants $2,250,000 for its 3,945 square feet. But what's most impressive about the listing is the sleek renovation, recently completed in 2013.
↑ Located in downtown Park City and originally built in 1910, this 5-bedroom, 5-bath historic home was "taken down to the studs" by Kevin Horn Design and Wasatch Engineers. Modern design elements like a floating staircase and rebuilt fireplace blend with the home's original early 20th-century charm.
