Drayton Park House
Refurbished Property Staging
In the heart of London’s Arsenal, facing the steps to the Emirates Stadium, a derelict, three-storey, Edwardian house was beautifully restored to a four-bed family home. The previous owners had retained many of the beautiful original features and a modern extension brought much needed natural light into the open plan kitchen/diner.
A quick sale was expected, but after six months on the market, there was not a single offer. Viewers reported that the property felt cold and that they struggled to make sense of the open plan spaces. The agent brought us on board to avail of our refurbished property staging service.
With a young family (and Arsenal supporters) in mind, we selected warm tones and soft textures to help each room feel cosy and inviting. Furniture was carefully positioned to divide the spaces and give viewers an idea of how each room could feel with their own furniture.
The house was under offer at the asking price within four weeks.
“We had difficulties selling an empty property in Islington despite it being in an excellent location and in good condition. We were advised by the agents to ‘dress’ it with in a few days transformed it with well co ordinated and cleverly designed furniture placement into very sought after property. They use high quality furnishings and have a great attention to detail, which created the balance of chic but very comfortable surroundings. They are very efficient company explaining from the outset their terms and conditions and it is important to make sure that everything is clear from the start of the contract. However they are flexible and when we needed to speed up the end of the contract once we had sold the apartment they were able to act very quickly.”
