Stalking a warehouse

I always get excited when I stumble upon a warehouse conversion when I'm out real estate stalking. I get even more excited when the end result lives up to my hyped up expectations. Someone please lend me the money to buy this home in Melbourne's Hawthorne East. It's a grownup warehouse. Seriously stylish.

Dream

Older houses often do not conform to our modern way of living so additions or extensions to the older building give a chance to create something stylishly contemporary. Warm wood tones work well with copper and leather accents to balance a sleek black and white modern space.
