Agents & Their Spaces: Madeline Kennedy

Specialising in the local Stonnington property market, Madeline is known for her passionate and hardworking nature. She resides in a charmingly renovated period home in the picturesque, leafy suburb of Armadale.

‘Our home is filled with love, laughter and good times with friends and family,’ says Madeline Kennedy, Marshall White director and real estate veteran. Specialising in the local Stonnington property market, Madeline is known for her passionate and hardworking nature. She resides in a charmingly renovated period home in the picturesque, leafy suburb of Armadale. With a uniquely styled interior, the space reflects Madeline’s incredible attention to detail.

The expansive, light-filled rooms feature ‘an eclectic style of furniture and artwork collected along the journey with special memories attached. I believe a house becomes a home when you slowly fill it with meaningful, special things that represent something important to you and your family.’

Madeline’s growing family enjoy relaxing and unwinding together, spending most of their time in the family room. ‘It has a north facing aspect so it’s light and bright throughout the whole day. It opens to a covered deck where we enjoy eating and relaxing at the end of the day.’

Her favourite piece in the home is quirky and unique and holds pride of place in the family room. ‘A few years ago, we found a really interesting enlarged photo of an old factory which produced aircraft engines during the war. It was located in Port Melbourne and the photo was taken a few days before the factory was demolished. I love it because it’s so unique and full of history.’

A well-regarded suburb with much to offer, Armadale is a tightly held pocket, popular both with families who are keen to be close to the prestigious schools nearby, and down-sizers who want to be close to the city and public transport.

‘We have everything we need within close walking distance: cafes, restaurants, Union Street Park, trams and trains.’

Making the most of the privileged location, Madeline notes, ‘My favourite local is just a few doors away at Gardiner and Field café which was previously a milk bar. The team there are lovely and they do great coffee and food. It’s opposite Union Street Park so we can grab a take away and enjoy the outdoors!’

‘My advice is if you find a home that ticks most of your boxes, do whatever you can to secure it! You may have to wait a long time for the next opportunity and you’ll inevitably pay more anyway. Real estate in Armadale is blue chip and rock solid.’

With an innate knowledge of the local Stonnington property market, Madeline understands the value, growth and opportunities in the area, encouraging buyers to be open to compromise when it comes to securing a home in the highly sought-after suburbs.

‘My advice is if you find a home that ticks most of your boxes, do whatever you can to secure it! You may have to wait a long time for the next opportunity and you’ll inevitably pay more anyway. Real estate in Armadale is blue chip and rock solid.’

The stunning late Victorian home was renovated by the previous owners around eight years ago. ‘The renovation was designed by David Neil. Having sold a number of homes which he designed, he is one of my favourites, in terms of ease of living, the way he makes the most of natural light and storage throughout.’

Having recently been involved in the sale of 9 Alleyne Avenue, Armadale, Madeline points out the immaculate styling and presentation of the stunning home that helped it sell well above expectations. ‘It was incredibly popular in the market and sold exceptionally well,’ she says of the property, noting that good presentation can make the crucial difference to the successful sale of a home.
