1 Lynott Street, St Kilda
On the arc of a peaceful park-side cul-de-sac, just a short stroll from Carlisle Street, this Victorian’s sweet original façade conceals an extraordinary modern-day transformation - an architect-designed renovation merging classic and contemporary in generous proportions.
The interior design of this much-loved family home of Kip&Co Founder and Creative Director, Alex McCabe, is elevated with custom features and finishes, adding luxury to inner city living.
Set behind the period double fronted verandah, two spacious bedrooms retain their high ceilings and romantic character, with new floor to ceiling built-in-robes and one with open fireplace (OFP).
Beyond, a series of exceptional open plan areas are kept beautifully bright by multiple natural light sources, a soaring north-facing clerestory ceiling and expansive glass doors that slide into the wall cavity for a seamless connection to decked entertaining and the attractively landscaped garden and herb bed.
Generous living and dining zones with OFP, bespoke artisan bookcase and herringbone parquetry floors are served by a show-stopping kitchen finished with aged brass cabinetry, Crocodile Bamboo quartzite, a stunning pink concrete island, indoor self-watering garden and concealed butler’s pantry/laundry with vast storage.
A range of other highlights include terrazzo tiled bathroom with honey onyx vanity, powder room, attic storage with ladder plus widespread floor to ceiling storage throughout, hydronic heating, ducted heating/cooling and hardwood timber floors.
Step out of the front door and across the storybook bridge to Pakington Street Reserve with its playground and community garden, around the corner to Carlisle Street shopping, eateries and bars, St Kilda Botanic Gardens, trains, trams to the beach, Chapel Street precinct and CBD, St Kilda Primary, St Michael’s Grammar, childcare and a whole lot more.
Advocate For This
Ben Reid’s passion for excellence and outstanding service was obvious from the moment he first entered the Real Estate industry as a salesperson back in 2004. In fact, Ben began setting new industry benchmarks from his first month on the job, not only maintaining a remarkable 100% sales success for close to two years from his first sale, but also gaining numerous awards for outstanding sales results over many years. Like his father, Ben had a desire to bring a higher standard of advice and a more vendor focused service to more Melbourne homeowners. It was this aim that saw him take up a role as a Vendor Advocate, before rising to his current management position a couple of years later. Since that time he has played a key role in building the excellent skills of the team at Vendor Advocacy Australia, as well as providing guidance and strategic direction to each team member. The fact that these dedicated professionals are widely acknowledged as one of the most experienced and highly skilled teams in Australian real estate clearly demonstrates his success in this role. One of the most satisfying parts of his current role is that it allows Ben to play a part in making a real difference to a large number of property sellers. As Ben says, “I’m very proud to be a part of a team that provides outstanding advice and honest guidance to our clients. From working with the best real estate agents in this industry, we are constantly learning and refining our practices to ensure fantastic results for our vendors.” Ben’s extensive knowledge of real estate also extends to first hand experience of property subdivision and development, yet when asked about his career highlights to date he immediately refers to some of the outstanding results he has been able to negotiate for his clients. If experience, commitment and passion are high on your criteria for selecting a property advisor, then Ben Reid is your man.
