You would think I haven’t got very far these past few days, that I’m caught in a virtual real-estate-stalking parallel universe. It couldn’t be further from the truth. Although I’m sharing this inner city Melbourne warehouse style home with its polished concrete floors, steel framed windows and soaring ceiling in its impressive entrance I haven’t spent the entire weekend stalking. I’ve actually been working on a new master bedroom in my own house that I hope to share with you any day now. I’m moving from my old black bedroom to a white, bright room across the corridor. It’s not that I fell out of love with black walls. It’s just time for a change. In the meantime you can tell me how you feel about the black ceiling in this warehouse’s open plan living space. Link to the listing here while it lasts.
I’m in my favourite Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy and I’m stalking one of my favourite house types, the warehouse conversion. Plenty of light, plenty of art, library on the landing and just a hop, skip and jump to all the inner-city cool that is Fitzroy. What more could I want? Oh maybe the estimated $1 800 000 to $2 000 000 to buy it. Link here while it lasts.
I’m in the Sydney suburb of Annandale stalking the warehouse home of Julian Cress, Executive Producer of the Australian reality renovation show The Block. Originally his artist father’s studio, Cress and his family have transformed the vast shell into a modern home while retaining its industrial roots. Price guide is $4 million AUD so the vast majority of us will never be able to afford it but we can dream. Link here while it lasts.
This may be my all time favourite warehouse conversion ever featured on this here blog. This beauty is a recently converted and extended ironmongers warehouse in London. THE KITCHEN!!! A total dream in tile, concrete, walnut, marble, copper, brass and brick. TO DIE FOR!!! I would stop there but I am also a new huge fan of terrazzo flooring so there’s that too. Available as a location home through Shoot Factory.
I’m in Collingwood an inner-city suburb of Melbourne and I’m stalking one half of an old concrete block warehouse. Inside it’s soaring ceilings and white walls, black steel windows and open spaces. From the mix of mid century and contemporary furniture to the striking artwork it’s the quintessential industrial meets modern living conversion. It appears that’s it is being used as a commercial premises and I’m stratching my head as to where I’d put the bed. You must view the listing video and leave your critique of the acting in the comments. Link here while it lasts.
P.S. Stayed tuned for tomorrow’s post on the other half of this building. A completely different take on the space.
