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.
