The industrial renovation | Innovation Tech
WHAT was once the site of a music store and an event agency has been transformed into something unique and intriguing.
This industrial warehouse conversion is the type of property that needs to be seen to be believed.
On two titles, its zoning is industrial/residential, which leaves options open for the next owner to dream big.
Spread across a 816sqm floor plan, there is a four-bedroom home enclosed in the former warehouse, plus a single-bedroom sleep-out, a home studio, two kitchens and three bathrooms.
On entry, under a bridge, the vast space opens up before you. Although covered, the space is flooded with natural light from the extensive use of LaserLite.
An eye-popping highlight is the unique double-glazed four-bedroom house found in the warehouse.
It extends across two levels. The main bedroom has walk-in wardrobes and an ensuite.
There is also a loungeroom and a stylish modern kitchen. These spaces are large and inviting.
Each additional bedroom is a double.
A nice addition is the one-bedroom guest retreat.
In a quirky twist, this bedroom is on wheels so it could be moved anywhere within the basketball court-sized area to the rear of the warehouse.
Alongside the building’s living areas there is also a studio and workshop on a separate title.
There is ample parking, with three spots outside and possibly four more inside.
With 5kW of solar panels and energy saving hot water, this is not an expensive house to run.
Only a small percentage of the total space has been developed, leaving room for the next owner to build almost anything.
