Exterior of a new construction Spanish revival style home in Los Angeles. The stone pathway, garden gate and fountain make a wonderfully charming entrance. (above and below)
This estate sits on almost half an acre in one of L.A.'s toniest neighborhoods. Last year, this new Spanish revival home was for sale and last year it sold thanks to the efforts of premier home staging expert Meridith Baer.
In staging this Southern California house for sale, Meridith and her team kept the decorations simple, clean and elegant. Lots of white upholstered chairs and sofas, dark wood detailing on furniture and neutral accessories like pillows and throws. Meridith left off window coverings to take advantage of the wonderful windows and natural light - making the space bright and inviting to prospective buyers. All of these decor elements were combined not to make a bold interior design statement per se but to make the home an upscale, tasteful, stylish and livable looking space - a place that possible buyers could imagine as their own. Well, whatever Meridith and team did worked...the home sold for over $9 million! Wow.
Here are some details on this property: almost 11,000 square feet, 7 bedrooms, 8 baths, 5 fireplaces, 2 family rooms, media room, library, office, pool, canyon views and a 4 car garage. Hmmm...all of this would work for me!
I wonder if the home's new owners kept the furniture that so Meridith used for staging...I would have!
A picture is worth 1000 words (I know...cliches are bad form in writing but in this case a cliche works for me :-) ...)...so I will let the photos of this home tell the story...here you go...
Living room features a grand fireplace. A jute rug, two white sofas and a large tufted ottoman define this inviting space. (above)
What do you think of this Spanish Revival home?
Hope you have a fabulous Monday!
