A Triumph of Staging

Eye-catching home goes quickly

The columns had been erected and the bricks laid. A brand new home had come to life in Golden Eagle. Its buyers were excited by the prospect of becoming its first occupants.

Tricon Builders had envisioned a craftsman-style home that would attract the attention of passersby with its brick façade and abundant windows. The circular driveway beckoned prospective buyers to pull in and take a look. 

“With the lack of new construction in this price range and the wonderful amenities of this gated community, it’s no wonder we had so many families looking at this home,” said Realtor Lisa Montgomery-Calvert. 

The front door leads directly into the living room, starting each guest off with a warm welcome and an invitation to cozy up on a couch in front of the ornately tiled fireplace. Beautifully coffered ceilings add an art deco flair to the room. 

The open floor plan leads from the living room into the dining room and kitchen. An island that can be used for meal preparation or a breakfast bar separates the living room and kitchen. The kitchen features stark white cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, gorgeous granite counters and an elaborately tiled backsplash and gives way to an attached formal dining room. 

Engineered wood floors lead to four bedrooms, two bonus rooms and the study. The master bedroom also features wood flooring and the impressive master bathroom includes double vanities, a jetted tub, light wood flooring, and a glass, walk-in shower. 

The screened porch is suitable for use during throughout the year, even when it rains, and adjoins a mudroom. 

“This home was beautifully staged once completed, which definitely helped in the quick sale,” said Montgomery-Calvert.  

White cabinetry makes for a pleasing juxtaposition against the deep chocolate hue of the wood floors, giving the buyer plenty of creative freedom with the décor of the home.
