A chic unit inside an old boot factory is expected to sell for $1.75-$1.9 million.

A warehouse conversion inside an old boot factory has hit the market in Brunswick East.

Once home to Jenkins Boot Factory, the warehouse was subdivided into three different units.

The largest one at 122 Victoria St now has an indicative price tag of $1.75-$1.9 million.

Collins Sims Inner North agent Nicholas Corby said the triple-brick warehouse conversion was particularly versatile.

The conversion features up to five bedrooms.

The deluxe cooking space.

“It is a good-sized warehouse,” Mr Corby said.

“The large open-plan living areas face the northern garden, so plenty of natural light comes through.

“And it offers up to five bedrooms, which is quite good compared to other conversions.”

The ground floor features the large living space and a stone kitchen with integrated Liebherr fridges and freezers, a Bosch cooker, three sinks and a walk-in pantry.

Also downstairs are two bedrooms — one can be used as a rumpus room — a study, laundry and bathroom.

Three bedrooms and another bathroom are on the first floor.

Amenities include hydronic concrete floor heating, reverse-cycle ducted airconditioning, garage with remote control entry and video intercom.

Mr Corby said the vendors wanted a change and had moved to a different suburb.

The living domain retained its original timber beams and trusses.

Rear access offers a range of possibilities.

“The conversion is flexible with separate entry from the rear,” Mr Corby said.

“Ideal for families and running a business from home, it can be anything really.”

The property last sold for $315,000 in February 2002, according to CoreLogic data.

It is expected to go to auction on March 30.
