An Early Flack Studio-Renovated House In St Kilda On The Market!

On The Market

It’s not every day that an early Flack Studio-renovated home goes on the market, but, here we are!

After almost seven years living in this St Kilda stunner, lawyer and arts advocate Christine Fleer, her husband Gavin and their three kids are moving on from ‘Everly’. And this impeccably renovated Victorian dream house is looking for a new family to call it home!

Nestled in a quiet pocket of St Kilda is ‘Everly’, a quintessentially ‘Melbourne’ Victorian family home. It has been the dream home for a family of five for the last seven years.

Over that time, lawyer and arts advocate Christine Fleer and her husband Gavin have lovingly converted this heritage home into a contemporary four-bedroom family pad, with some serious design creds. The home features a RATHER fabulous renovation and custom kitchen by Melbourne interior design superstars Flack Studio – from before they were ‘famous’! Christine and her family have come to love their kitchen so much, she says they’ll miss it ‘like a relative’!

Christine also notes the flow of the house as a real highlight. The bedrooms and bathrooms come off a wide entry hall, leading to the expansive open plan living and dining space, which opens out to a pergola overlooking the garden (designed by Grounded Gardens) and pool. ‘Everly has been a dream of a home for a growing family with lots of entertaining – so many kids dinners, birthday parties, 30ths and movie nights,’ says Christine. ‘It has everything we’ve needed for a busy, happy life. We can’t quite get our heads around leaving.’

Although Christine and her family are staying in the neighbourhood (it’s *that* good!), ‘Everly’ is now looking for the next generation of design-lovers to make it their own!

‘Everly’ is open for expressions of interest until October 20th and being sold by private sale. Take a look at the real estate listing here
