Moving Mountains Design was recently hired to stage a $5.78 million home in San Marino, CA. The home, built in 1926, was design by Roland E. Coate, a noted California architect. This Spanish Colonial home had not been on the market since the early 1950's. It did not appear that any upgrades had been undertaken during that time. Showing buyers the true potential of this home was not easy, but we were up to the task.
The seller accepted one of multiple offers 10 days after the home was staged. Escrow is set to close next week.
Escrow has closed, and the sale was recorded by the Tax Assessor - $5.78 million SP%LP=100%!
The rooms were huge. The Persian rug in the living room was 12'x15' and there was still a very generous border of hardwood surrounding it.
Here is a photo of the living room before. Sorry I don't have any photos of exactly the same angle. The hardwood floors were refinished and the room painted before staging. Also we replaced all the light bulbs to a higher wattage daylight balancing light bulb to make the room appear warmer and brighter to the eye.
The ballroom size Dining Room was so long, we put two identical dining tables together to create one 12' long table, which wasn't dwarfed by the room. The Persian rug in this room was a "palace size" 22'long x 12'wide.
Here is a before photo of the dining room. It is the opposite angle from the after photo.
