Stained-glass Stairway Landing - Kirkland is an Art Town

Real Estate Agent with Better Properties Seattle

Kirkland, Washington is a City known for many thngs, but two of its biggest claims to fame are that it is a City built on a Lake and it is known for its many Art Stores.

The stained glass "window of vases" on the stairway landing of my home are not part of the window,  They are free standing separate pieces that can be re-arranged.  The stairway window art was made by my sister Loretta, she was creating the effect of vases on a shelf.  The Mondrian paintings to the right were done by me.  To the left you see a hint of the colored glass pieces that decorate the home.

The original house, built in 1921 had no second floor and no stairway up and this feature was added, along with the 750 sf master suite, in 1994 by the previous owner.

As I continue to prepare the house for market, I will be sorting and collecting photos in posts here on Active Rain.  I'm hoping to re-take that front shot in the next day or earlier in the day whenthe sun is on he front of the house.

The two posts below this have additional photos and I hope to have several more by end of day.

See the two posts below for additional interior photos. I have to do the kitchen, Dining Room, Music Room, Master Suite including excercise room with a view, the additional bedrooms and baths and the lower level living space.

...and my office.  Forgot about my office.  That's going to take some cleanup!  Though I did repaint it a couple of months ago as the first step in getting the house ready.  It will take a well to get all thepapers organized, here's a photo taken from my office one evening as the sun was setting.  Gathering photos that you have taken over time is part of pulling everything together before uploading the listing in the mls.

Sometimes a photo taken in the past at an opportune moment is better than one you can take in the few days before putting your home on market.

Do you do staging on your listings. You have a real eye for making a place appealing -- good at getting the right "shot" too. Those who list with you are lucky.

I do Steven, but I don't lug in sofas and big arm chairs.  I do blow up beds at times and I have a few glass tables and chairs.  But mostly I do what is called "light staging" with canvass pictures and bottles of peppers, flowers, plants towels and other easy to transport items.  Some bar stools.
