This Stylist's Studio Apartment Is On The Market

On the Market

Stylist Lynda Gardener first purchased this perfectly-positioned St Kilda apartment almost 25 years ago, as her ‘first foray into the investment property market’. Since then, the pocket-sized pad has seen only two tenants over the entire period, each staying for many years.

Tiny but mighty, this sweet studio with its cute adjoining courtyard is a properly affordable option for any keen first home buyer out there!

‘It feels like a little oasis… everything is pure white and just feels so bright and airy’. – Lynda Gardener.

Light spills into this studio apartment from huge floor-to-ceiling windows, looking out towards a lush courtyard dense with greenery – a rare luxury in a St Kilda studio! Clever alterations have been made by the current owner, stylist Lynda Gardener, to maximise every angle of this sweet spot.

One of four apartments in the block, this gem is positioned just off Grey Street, a couple of blocks back from the beach and only a hop, skip and a jump away from the bustle of Fitzroy Street. Some of Lynda’s favourite local hotspots include ‘Scout House for homewares, the newly renovated Esplanade Hotel for drinks upstairs and a bite to eat, Baker D’Chirico for pastries and bread, Cicciolina for old-school Italian food (an institution), and Supernormal Canteen for delicious food, snacks and drinks’. Yum!

The versatile space offers many options for prospective buyers and lifestyles. ‘It can be an open plan home of course… or if you live in the country and wish for a small studio in the city or near the beach, it’s perfect!’ Lynda says. ‘It feels like a little oasis… it just feels so bright and airy’.

Not forgetting that the reserve bank just this week dropped interest rates to their lowest EVER…  if you’ve been waiting to get into the market, this could be *the one*!
