What is it about a Georgian house that offers instant appeal and imparts an immediate sense of gracious living? History for one. Georgian architecture has been around since the 1700s, and some of the most recognizable American institutions have been built in this style. From Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello estate to Yale University, the style instills a sense of stability and strength. Our Monday Morning Millionaire is a Highland Park Georgian at 3911 Gillon Avenue that is perfect example of this architectural style’s virtues.
As a stager, I’m often asked by sellers, “What are buyers looking for?” There’s a long answer of course, and much depends on who the buyer is. But the short one is that they are looking for exactly what you’ll see in this University Park contemporary French traditional home at 4080 Hanover Street.
2932 Stanford listed with Tom Hughes at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s for $1,155,000.
Whose house does this remind you of? Just needs black shutters!
