We are looking to sell our house but would like to give an immediate curb appeal. The house is valued over $1M based on the interior and location, but the exterior does not appeal to buyers in the >1M price range.
We have an ideal materials budget of $15,000 to update the front yard, house facing, garage doors, and breezeway entrance. We have removed the walkway to the breezeway for practical purposes, but the breezeway between the garage and the house still walks out to a brick patio and wooden deck (back of the house). Our first approach was to remove the breezeway door, but we cannot find reasonable cost savy solutions. We are open to ideas that will allow us to retain light and air from that front opening of the breezeway but will not draw visitors to use it as a main entry to the home.
The objective is curb appeal close to the budget. We are open to ideas which may include hardscaping and definitely inclusive of landscaping. We would like drawings/perspectives and proposed material solutions and landscaping plants/bushes.
Overall the style of the home is transitional, or what we've been calling it "rustic modern." The home is in a private, wooded setting. We'd like the end look to appeal to a wide variety of style preferences, since we are planning to sell the home soon.
