In this final episode, Sarah puts the finishing touches on the front landscaping. Unfortunately, I have no exterior photos to show you so you'll just have to imagine the beige brick exterior (which Sarah thought would be grey in the first episode) and the giant 7 ton Norway Spruce tree Sarah puts in the front yard to add "been here all along" appeal.
Sarah invites three real estate agents to assess the changes and they tell us what they really think of the house:
ü Marble flooring in the entry sets the tone for this elegant home
û Living room is not a child friendly space
ü Every upgrade spent in the kitchen was worth it. Money very well spent
ü Use of hardwood throughout reinforces the open concept layout
û Family room isn't cozy enough
ü Beautiful flow throughout the house. Every room has own character.
û Very bold dining room for the suburbs. It’s a statement but not sure it’s the right statement you want in this home
û Bold wallpaper in powder room
ü Romantic master bedroom with interesting colour scheme
ü Upgrading the lighting in the ensuite adds a feeling of luxury
ü Nook in girls room is great for homework
ü Boys room has an edge to the design
ü Money was put into the bathrooms and it shows
û Craft room instead of a 4th bedroom is a gamble. Many families in the suburbs have 3 or 4 kids and need 4th bedroom
ü Family friendly rec room that doesn’t look like a basement
ü Walkout upgrade well worth it
So chime in folks... what did you think of the house overall? Would you pay $1M+ for it?
