Why we love it
Staging can really bring out the potential of a house and turn it from an empty vessel to the coziest place on Earth, and that’s exactly what staging did to this property. Just looking at it makes us want to live in it! The property itself is not as spacious, but the potential it has to be turned into something extravagant is extraordinary. It’s like a magic house that’s small on that outside, but big on the inside. Stand alone, this house has amazing geometry. There’s not a hallway that’s too narrow, nor a room that would feel like a tight squeeze. And we cannot NOT pay attention to the tall, panel windows! High enough to give the people inside privacy and low enough for the people outside to peak at the ceiling and get an idea how the insides must look like.
