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.
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 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.”
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.
