HALF A BILLION DOLLARS! Yep, according to our audit, that’s the sales value of all the properties we styled in the Spring selling season. Well not quite, to be precise it was $493,875,075. Crazy, right?!
Life is definitely fun as a Bowerbird! We feel so privileged to be in and around amazing properties every day and so we thought we would share some highlights with you all.
To kick things off, a brand new 5 bedroom home in Maroubra, setting a suburb record for a property without water views. Our team drew inspiration from the abundance of light, space and premium finishes to create a “high end soft industrial” scheme. We were excited to learn from the selling agent that the buyer was the first lady that saw the property, originally empty. After seeing it furnished she increased her offer from $4,000,000 to the final sale price of $4,350,000.
Next up, we have a meticulously restored Victorian Terrace in Bellevue Hill. We worked with a coastal chic style blending contemporary and classic details cohesively. The property was on the market for just 22 days, selling at a whopping $600,000 over expectations for $4,700,000.
Sophisticated and refined is the best way to describe this stunning Mosman property. Concrete flooring, open plan living and sleek contemporary lines were the features from which our styling team found their inspiration. To suit the vendor’s brief which was “Modern Australian”, we ensured we used pops of colour and selected some eccentric pieces to give the property a unique edge. We believe it’s the smaller details that ensure the best results and, in this instance, helped to achieve a sale price of $4,010,000.
Proving that amazing results are not reserved for grand scale homes, a luxe 2 bedroom apartment in the lower North Shore was a favourite with our stylist in 2016. To enhance the spaciousness and fundamental features, we decided on a “high end Scandinavian” look, complimenting the apartment’s clean lines and sleek finishes. Selling for $150,000 over expectations this Milsons Point apartment sold for $1,750,000 in just 13 days.
Rounding out our Spring 2016 feature blog is a Palatial Victorian Residence in the heart of Randwick. Tastefully demonstrating a fusion between classic and contemporary design this home exudes character. To enhance the period charm, we styled the interiors in a “high end timeless classic” scheme helping to achieve $350,000 over expectations with a sale price of $3,200,000.
