Home Staging for Luxury Properties in the Costa Brava

A complete Home Staging Project of an authentic heritage fisherman’s house, situated in front of the sea in the picturesque village of Calella de Palafrugell, Girona.

The project’s main challenge was to transform the appearance of a house with a 70’s era look and feel in order to attract the interest of a very select type of buyer in the 21st Century.

Selling a Luxury House in the Empordà

To achieve this, Markham Stagers chose to work extensively on a strategy centered on intangible values: environment, history, tradition, character, authenticity, the Empordà-Costa Brava brand and the luxury that simplicity can bring.

We took the qualities of legacy and high-value and crafted them into a more up-to-date image that made it more palatable for sale without sacrificing the authentic character of the property

After a deep de-personalization of the house, our creative team opted to combine ingredients of the Neo-Rustic trend, with minimalist touches and true Mediterranean elements: natural fibres, organic finishes and selected details of refreshing colour.

Transforming a House for Sale into a Property of Desire

Some spaces of the house were converted into more liveable and user-friendly rooms, ensuring a more successful real estate sale.

The most notorious example was found on the ground floor, with the uninviting dark space that was previously used as a boat storage area. For this project, we transformed this space into a pleasant and spacious lounge that acts as a shelter from the intense heat in summer or the cold and blustery days of winter.

The surroundings of the property, which lies within the Protected Historical Zone of Port Bo, also played an important role in this staging, since it was integrated into the decor and used as a part of the sales pitch.

We worked with the Arxiu Històric of Palafrugell to recover old photographs depicting the lives of the fishermen who inhabited these houses at the beginning of the 20th Century.

The area of the house which totals 300m2, is distributed across 5 floors with a variety of stunning views of the sea to the east and a beautiful cobblestone street and white facades to the west.

With numerous spaces for leisure, rest and enjoyment that caters to all of the senses, this property is a truly authentic Mediterranean gem, located in one of the most charming coastal towns of the entire Costa Brava.

All this work resulted in a huge improvement of the property as a product that, in just a few months, brought a closing to the table. This took place in a shorter time frame compared to the average in the area for this type of properties and price range.
