Among the historic, older houses in Sheridan, this property on Fairway Court sits stoic.

       A contemporary play on traditional Western aesthetic, it’s easy to see why the 2016 property is our editor’s top pick on the market this month. With its stone façade and almost ostentatious detailing, it’s every Magnolia homesteader’s dream come true… and then some.

Perfectly situated backing up against the golf course with west-facing view of the Bighorns, this 2-year-old home has hardwood details and classic design. 

Designed by Sheridan-based Yarak Construction as a spec home, the builders spared no detail, with hardwood trim and doors made to be sturdy and evince Old West design.

The lot is professionally landscaped with a wraparound walk and fire pit for spending summer nights gazing up at the stars, just like the original homesteaders.

Vaulted ceilings give the house an airy, yet cozy feel with exposed wood beams and high-end finishes.

Granite countertops throughout the kitchen and baths lend a contemporary touch to the home’s traditional feel.

Both bathrooms have updated tile work, including trendy Subway tile, and earth tone classics.

Not to be outdone, the garage comes complete with heater and classic finishes with new-age Western style.

6 Tips for Staging by Kim Hall

1. Declutter: Sell, store, donate, or toss any personal items that you do not use. Rule of thumb:  If you haven’t used it in a year, you probably won’t!

2. Clean, clean, clean!  Never underestimate the power of a clean house. Always assume buyers will look in every nook and cranny, because they do.  Refresh old grout, get rid of the grungy shower curtain liner, scrub off the greasy stovetop…you get the picture.

3. Remove unneeded furniture pieces and arrange the remaining pieces to maximize floor space and flow. The key is to create as much space as possible.

4. Depersonalize your accessories and photos. Keep personal photos and collections to a minimum. The goal here is to allow the buyer to envision their own things in the home.

5. Create a pleasing, neutral color scheme and feel throughout the home. Keeping the color palette and style of the furnishings consistent is a must. If your bathroom walls are hot pink, put on your painting clothes and get to work!

6. Fresh linens are critical. Remove old, worn out towels, bedding, shower curtains, etc. Use light, new linens to instantly refresh your home. This is minimum investment for maximum impact!
