The Belvedere House

Tired of managing their rental property, the owners of The Belvedere House were ready to sell and wanted to feel confident in receiving top dollar for the home. We had two months to prep this 2,000 sqft. Belvedere home with minor cosmetic upgrades to attract today's buyers.

The Living Room

Objective: Create a warm and welcoming space for everyday living and entertaining

With a fantastic floor plan to work with and an open living / dining room that flowed seamlessly to the outdoors, we focused only on cosmetic updates that would maximize their sales price. The major changes were refinishing the hardwood floors to a whitewash finish, painting the interior white and upgrading the light fixtures.

The Den

Objective: Update the space to create a cozy, casual family room

The room off the kitchen is the perfect space for hanging out, watching movies or cozying up with a good book. Our goal was to update the space with fresh paint and new brass hardware to accentuate the midcentury modern cabinetry.

The Kitchen

Objective: Update the hardware and appliances to make the kitchen feel new

The existing layout and color scheme were great as is. All it took was some new hardware, light fixtures, a new dishwasher and refrigerator to add exponential value to the home.

With high vaulted-ceilings and ample sunlight, we brightened the room with our go-to white paint color, refinished the hardwood floors and styled it to maximize the space.

The Million Dollar Question...

After we prep a home we always ask ourselves, do we think we would have seen the same results if the home was in its original condition? We'll let you be the judge.
