Honing in on the problem

The property had been vacant for an extended period of time, and lack of regular maintenance had the property in need of some love and attention…
Gardens and surrounds looked overgrown and neglected
Broken and damaged outdoor bluestone pavers and deteriorated grout
Damages to window frames and curtains
Large hole where a swimming pool once was
Deteriorated caulking in wet areas
Dusty, dirty and empty interiors
The difference between a professionally dressed property offered for viewing and sale and one not dressed was evident in the number of people who view the property before the Auction and the number of people who attended on the day. Thank you very much for providing that professional edge at a very reasonable rate.”

the solution

Creative forces unite

Our goal on this project was to create a stunning masterpiece and return the run-down property to its former 1960s glory in a stylish and desirable way. To do so, our team…
Brought light to a dark, conifer-filled garden with extensive pruning and redefining garden beds and laying fresh mulch
Laid new turf with easy-to-grow Sir Walter Grass, and planted mature plants
Filled in the once-existent swimming pool
Undertook an extensive repair to window frames
Repair and replace damaged bluestone pavers and re-grouted the area
Conducted a detailed interior clean, including windows inside and outside
High-pressure hosing of all outdoor areas
Completed full styling of every room
the results

Far exceeded vendor expectations

Client satisfaction is most important to us, so when the hard work and vision pays off for the owner – as it did with this project – it’s a win for all. The celebratory results of this rejuvenation were…
Property was quoted between $2.5 million and $2.7 million
Front cover of Domain Magazine
Sale price of $2,871,000
A quick 45-minute nail biting auction
Over five bidders
I had no hesitation calling Zenza Interiors when I listed this property for auction. Zenza’s vision, knowledge of the market and client and purchasers’ expectations of how to present the home was second to none. The styling and the maintenance/repairs needed to bring this home to its best was streamlined, efficient and professional. The moment both myself and the owners saw the finished product we knew we had made the right choice. It was simply stunning. Attention to detail was evident at each and every turn. The end result spoke for itself. Thank you Zenza team – a job very well done!
