This ominous brick warehouse is on the market for $1.98 million

This former hat factory from the 1920s has been transformed into a VERY modern two bedroom home – complete with a private courtyard and an open-plan living space

  • A large brick warehouse in Melbourne first built in the 1920s has been converted into a modern home
  • While it doesn’t look like much from the outside, the interior design and decoration is a sight to behold
  • The two-bedroom and two-bathroom arrangement has six metre high ceilings that let it lots of natural light
  • The vendors have only decided to sell the once-in-a-lifetime home because they need more space for the kids

A former hat factory from the 1920s has been transformed into a stunning two bedroom in Melbourne’s inner suburbs. 

With high steel windows and foreboding timber doors its position in Windsor makes it an artist’s dream – but once you step inside it’s far more than a trendy studio space. 

Susie Cohen, a Made by Cohen architect, converted the industrial estate into a liveable den just over 10 years ago and now the quirky space is worth almost $2million.

As you step inside the property it becomes profoundly obvious that there is more natural light available to the space than first thought

As visitors step inside the property, natural light floods through the open-plan space and sunlight floods the private outdoor courtyard. 

Floor to ceiling glass in the kitchen and living spaces make this two-bedroom, two-bathroom house a pleasure to work, sleep and eat in and create a feeling of spaciousness that can be difficult to achieve in a warehouse conversion. 

‘The street presence of the property is unbelievably striking and inside there are six metre high ceilings, an amazing amount of storage and terrific separation between the levels,’ Kay & Burton South Yarra agent Darren Lewenberg told realestate.com.au.

The only reason the current vendors - who purchased the house from the Cohen's in 2009 for $1.35 million - are selling the house is because they want more space for their children to run around

For the average couple, perhaps with just one child, the open-plan living arrangement would be a sleek addition to their portfolio.

Designer appliances and a large island bench make it perfect for any foodie and the study could be transformed into a nursery if the owners were expecting another baby.

A sprawling northeast courtyard offers a unique connection with the outdoors and means you can be cooking dinner while entertaining guests on the patio.

The walk-in wardrobe and ensuite in the master bedroom is located on the mezzanine level giving a couple total privacy away from the goings on downstairs

'It's pretty funky yet functional, you could have three bedrooms or two bedrooms and a study and work from home if you wanted,' Mr Lewenberg said
