13 Longs Road , Lower Plenty






This superb modernist home is intriguing and engaging, but most of all, beautiful. Commissioned by the current owner, the design is by the prolific 1960’s architecture firm Wells McCorriston. The home demonstrates why design is important, and how great design is timeless.

Anchored in stunning established gardens by renowned garden designer Gordon Ford, wonderful privacy prevails - the foliage from the garden infuses into every room. Blessed with seemingly endless glass, each room has a superb orientation that reinforces a connection with the outdoors, while providing warm, inviting interior spaces you look forward to inhabiting.

From the stunning formal lounge with a pitched, timber lined ceiling, you take in views of the front garden and the fabulous central rear courtyard.

The same outlook is achieved from the functional yet indulgent kitchen and dining areas. The smart design of the kitchen provides a brilliant walk-in pantry, electric cooking - and that fabulous outlook. The bedroom accommodation is generous yet intimate, dressed in carpets and drapes, all have robes and unique “wooden windows”, that literally open to bring the gardens in.

The considered floorplan provides great separation between the master suite and family bedrooms, while the bathroom is split in to three, with separate shower, toilet and bath room.

Well ahead of its time, you’ll find a European laundry cleverly tucked away, while 6 separate split systems, along with proper insulation, provide year-round comfort. There’s plenty of off-street parking, a double carport and garden shed.

Brilliantly located in a quiet tree-lined street, there’s a choice of excellent primary and secondary schools nearby, along with great shopping and excellent public transport options.

Beautifully executed and expertly crafted, this immaculate home is the epitome of brilliant design. It is sure to wow generations to come – just as it has done for the last five decades.

Advocate For This

michael collins

After a strong career in residential real estate, Michael Collins comes to Ian Reid Vendor Advocacy Australia with an extensive range of skills and experiences as well as glowing accolades from his previous clients. ‘Getting it right’, to Michael, means transparency, so that everyone involved (especially his vendors) knows exactly what’s happening at every step of the selling process.  Lines of communication are always open, all processes are structured and most importantly, the vendor remains in control with our expert guidance there for support. After seeing and hearing many sad stories of vendors being seriously misled and not being given the opportunity to achieve the best possible result, Michael chose to become a Vendor Advocate to position himself to make a difference and since joining has done exactly that. “The essential thing is to treat people how you would expect to be treated. The thing I most pride myself on is being able to listen carefully and empathetically, so that I can guide my clients through the real estate minefield towards an exciting and prosperous result” Michael’s experience extends to all methods of marketing and selling real estate.  From successful auction campaigns to a raft of extraordinary results negotiated through private sales, and all of them always with his vendors top of mind. Thinking of selling.  Contact us to experience Michael Collins’s trademark warmth, empathy and professionalism, and discover what a skilled listener and a practised advisor can really achieve for you.
