Meet the Shaughnessy Family!
We had the pleasure of representing the Shaughnessy family in the sale of their townhome and the purchase of their new construction home. They were already good friends of ours, so we were excited to help them though the home-selling & home-buying process – which can be very complicated. There are ways to manage a buy/sell situation, but proper planning and expectation setting is the key to success.
I recently visited them 1 year after they moved into their new home and was blown away by how they had truly made it their own. Both Ana and Mark have an incredible sense of style, so it was no surprise the home was gorgeous! They have two little ones that are full of energy and rushed to welcome me into their home. I felt special as Ana’s son was eager to show me his room – which was perfectly decorated. He was very happy to show me his toys and favorite books. Ana’s sweet little girl is always the supportive sister who waited patiently and then showed me her room, too.
Their home features a daylight basement which quickly became “kid central”. There I found a large comfortable couch, toys, games and books, and it led out to a sliding door to a greenbelt with an evergreen tree-lined backyard. Through the trees you can see a glimpse of farmland below the hillside. On the main level, there is an open concept kitchen-living-dining room with a little nook off the kitchen that the kids use as an activity center – for art projects & puzzles. The top floor features a beautiful master suite along with the kid’s bedrooms & a guest room.
Ana’s style is impeccable and she thoughtfully and carefully furnished the home. She brought a luxurious nod to mid-century and subscribes to the “less is more” style of home decor. It really felt like walking into a high end magazine shoot. Ana graciously let me interview her about her home-buying & home-making experience. I look forward to sharing our interview with you + some pictures by my favorite photographer: Ruby Somera.
