The Courtyard, Streatham
Less than 0.25% of property value
Our client had designed and built this incredibly property, which had a contemporary and upside down living in Streatham, South East London, just just a stone's throw from the Common. Our client had the home partially furnished and tried to sell it unsuccessfully. The property was cavernous at 4.200 sq ft and given its scale and because it was sterile, buyers could not visualise themselves living in it. After many months on the market, we were contacted to help. We call this our "James Bond" house due to the many high end, contemporary features which it has. We knew as soon as we saw it, that the home had much to offer it's future homeowner but focus was needed inside and out.
As this was an upside down home and the lower floor had restricted light given that some of this was underground, we recommended a new layout. One of the rooms had no natural light at all. Given that buyers would be confused on whether this was a large expensive storeroom versus a useable space, we transformed this into a yoga retreat. One of the other rooms on this floor had partial natural light, so we recommended this being set up as a spacious home office. We staged the home throughout. We even planted a lightwell with large pots and greenery and then transformed the courtyard garden by first weeding and then planting and then adding outdoor seating and dining before accessorising. We then took lots of photos to showcase the potential lifestyle on offer.
Property SOLD in less than 7 days! Our client was over the moon.
It has been a pleasure working with you and thank you for turning the staging around so quickly.
My development was lacking appeal and has been for sale for 2 years - Ceri turned a cold development into a desirable family home.
I was very impressed with her professionalism, her swift timescale and the attention to detail is incredible. Her staging has exceeded all my expectations.
I will use her services again. I highly recommend Ceri and the services of sort style and stage to anyone in need of property staging.
