Marshall Properties was asked to Stage and then sell this family home in Blackrock, Co Dublin.

Despite being a 4 – 5 bedroom detached family home, the original small kitchen allowed little or no space for family dining. This was resolved, relatively inexpensively, by installing a new breakfast bar which now comfortably accommodates 4 diners. This bar surface was then continued around the rest of the kitchen. The original footprint of the entrance hall was so limited that the original front door had to operate as a sliding door.

The hall was extended out into what was the outer porch and a new “proper” front door was installed. The bathroom was also reconfigured and despite its simplicity, the transformation was impressive. The ground floor bedroom was staged as a study. The backdrop to everything was kept neutral to appeal to the widest market.

The staging did the rest. The property quickly sold (and before others in the same area which had already been on the market) and for about €100,000 above the expected result!
