A Smith Mountain Lake condo remodel wasn’t exactly what my friend and client was looking to tackle a few years ago.
But take one look at the new issue of Smith Mountain Lake HOME Magazine and you’ll see it turned out to be the perfect decision.
WOW! Just wow.
The stunning cover is a photograph of the a recently remodeled penthouse condo at Gangplank Pointe in The Waterfront owned by my long-time bestie Peggy Balla.
The nine-page story that starts on Page 26 details how Peggy accomplished the amazing remodeling project with the assistance of local contractor Ken Brodin Builder and Robin Titus of R Titus Designs, a Chicago-based interior designer.
The article details how Peggy decided to downsize from a nearly 8,000-square-foot waterfront home to the 2,100-square-foot lakeside condo after her husband passed away.
She was ready to let go of the house, but not the Smith Mountain Lake community of The Waterfront. So after listing the home I set to work looking for a maintenance-free property that would fit her comfortably whether alone or hosting company.
Condo at Smith Mountain Lake gets a total facelift
What I found was a fixer-upper condo less than a mile down the road. The first few times we looked at together Peggy was not at all excited about the prospect of remodeling the three bedroom, three bath property.
But then Robin came and said, “We can do this. No problem.” Because the pair had worked together on a number of other projects over the years, Peggy took the leap and committed to the SML condo remodel.
The result is stunning, “a bit modern and not too cottage-y, with a healthy sprinkle of traditional lake house style.” An architectural centerpiece is a barn door from Black Dog Salvage that conceals the foyer closet. But there are really too many beautiful touches to mention here.
Take a look the HOME magazine article for all the details on how the whole project came together, as well as more photos of this gorgeous Smith Mountain Lake condo.
