Beautiful Yates Gardens Home in Old Town, Alexandria: Staged and Sold in 11 Days!

This charming townhouse in old town Alexandria was a challenge to stage. The smaller size needed to be played down and the charm played up. It was a matter of creating a lifestyle that would appeal to a broad spectrum of buyers and show how the spaces could be used to their best advantage.

We first began working with the contractor, Glenn Tobias, to paint the spaces with some updated colors. That was immediately transforming.Refinishing the beautiful hardwoods on the upper two levels also added to the appeal. As you can see from the pictures, the furniture we provided was minimal, but the details made the house a potential home for the buyers to experience. It was fun to see how the house came alive with the addition of our color and drama.

It was great to work with Elizabeth Lucchesi of McEnearney Associates in Alexandria and her team to stage this property for a quick sale.
