Highgate House

Highgate house mink sofa and cushions

In the heart of North London’s Highgate Village, a stunning, four storey, Georgian family home was rented to tenants while the family moved abroad for work. Eight years later the family decided to sell the house and, when the tenants moved out, we were contacted to help prepare the house for sale.

After advising on minor redecoration and remedial works we assisted with removing and donating unwanted furniture and arranged for cleaning and landscaping.

When it came to staging, we selected high quality furniture and accessories that would capture the hearts and imaginations of the local buying audience and help the large rooms with high ceilings feel spacious, yet at the same time, cosy and inviting.

The owners were delighted with the transformation, particularly when a cash buyer offered the full asking price within one day of it entering the market.

Decluttering ex-rental highgate house

“I wasn’t sure whether to get my house styled for sale, and was managing the sale from overseas. In the end after speaking to Janine I decided to go for it, and I am glad I did. She turned our empty house into a beautiful desirable home for potential purchasers, and we ended up accepting the first offer we got. Janine’s styling was modern and liveable and really transformed our property. She was pleasant and professional, always responsive. I can highly recommend this service. If I had to do the same again, I would make the decision to enlist Janine’s services. We were living in the USA, and so we had to hand complete trust over to Janine to take care of our house in London! I cannot stress enough that she’s an excellent communicator, and made us feel like we were a part of the process, despite being so far away.”
