Warehouse conversions continue to be highly sought-after properties among inner-city buyers.
With typically exposed brick interiors, soaring concrete ceilings, and cavernous living spaces, their popularity is easy to understand.
Together with a unique aesthetic appeal, warehouse-style homes also offer additional lifestyle perks.
Anne Einarson, selling agent at Harris Real Estate in Kent Town, said warehouse properties are highly favorable because they tend to be extremely low maintenance.
“Most of these homes don’t have a lot of outdoor garden space to care for, which makes them popular among downsizers,” Ms Einarson said.
Most tend to be positioned in trendy, well-located suburbs, adding another major drawcard.
“Converted warehouse spaces tend to be found in very connected urban areas – close to transport, village hubs and restaurants,” said Jeremy Brink, a director at Ray White Taylor + Partners in Darlinghurst.
“They are also generally within walking distance of the CBD, which makes them very appealing to the executive market,” Mr Brink said.
These are seven of the coolest warehouse-style homes currently on the market.
