A warehouse conversion has turned a former boatshed into a luxury one-bedroom home near Geelong’s waterfront.

Small homes might be on trend but a unique Geelong property where a former boat shed was converted to a luxury one-bedroom residence takes the cake.

The owner, who snapped up the building on a 65sq m block at 6 Heaths Lane in 2009, jumped on the opportunity to create the warehouse residence that’s operated as a short-stay accommodation.

6 Heaths Lane, Geelong.

The conversion has removed the parking space, creating a luxury home where buyers are keen to live just 50m from Eastern Beach.

It’s been listed for sale with a price guide of $549,000.

“It’s a clever use of design and some forward thinking for sure,” Hodges, Geelong West selling agent Carl Hammond said.

The kitchen has a stainless steel oven and an integrated dishwasher.

“The main area was converted to the kitchen, living and dining room, with a bathroom and bedroom added onto that,” Mr Hammond said.

“It’s turned into a warehouse-style residence at the front with a modern extension at the rear.

“The location is hard to beat, but also it’s got that uniqueness about it.”

Sleek fittings in the bathroom complement the industrial-look exposed bricks.

Mr Hammond said while some inspecting the property wanted to continue the short-stay use, others were looking for a luxury home base close to the beach and city centre.

He said it’s a prime example of clever architecture and a passion for interiors that’s created the luxury home.

The modern kitchen has a stainless steel oven and integrated dishwasher, plus a space-saving European laundry and overlooks a courtyard that draws natural light into the open-plan living zone and the bedroom.

Sleek fittings in the bathroom complement the industrial-look exposed brick.

The home sits directly behind Geelong’s waterfront strip, a short walk to the city’s shopping, cafe and restaurant scene.

A parking permit is also available.

The property is open for inspection on Saturday at 3.15pm.
