AUCTION PREVIEW: 25 Trafalgar St, Woolloongabba.
IT’S time to roll the Monopoly die and land on Trafalga St this weekend as the “cool” warehouse conversion goes under the hammer at 9am on Saturday, November 10.
Behind the black door is a Brisbane inner city warehouse conversion offering a desirable warehouse.
Place Woolloongabba lead agent Tom Uhlich said while these types of properties were often available in Sydney or Melbourne, there was nothing like it available in Brisbane at the moment.

“It was an old mechanic warehouse and they (the owners) came in and … converted the top half to a cool apartment,” Mr Uhlich said.
“It has its own beer garden area … and you are able to see into the sky.”
Look to the stars from the private beer garden.
He said there had been a social media buzz surrounding 25 Trafalga St, Woollongabba, resulting in lots of inspections.
“Probably half that just want to come and see it … I’ll put a property on social media and probably get 10-15 comments, but I had a 117 comments with this.”
Property owner Catherine Carroll said in 2011 she and partner Anthony Lloyd decided to combine business and home life to create a “unique to Brisbane” inner city warehouse conversion and lifestyle.
The property has created a buzz on social media.
“It’s such an easy lifestyle,” Ms Carroll said.
“Behind our little black door, we have everything we need, space, security, light and practical utilitarian and outdoor space.
“Whilst on our doorstep our village community provides everything we need.
The claw-foot bath is one of the owner’s favourite things in the house.
“The best coffee in Brisbane is steps away.
“Some of Brisbane’s best and most established restaurants a simple stroll away.
“A variety of gyms, retail, specialty providores and green spaces surround us.
“Our move to the warehouse was far better then we ever could have imagined.”
The owners love the kitchen and rooftop garden.
She said they even took in the sound of Taylor Swift this week as she performed at The Gabba on Tuesday night.
“Our favourite spaces are the kitchen and the rooftop garden,” she said.
“It all just works, light floods in the mornings and at night the rooftop garden is lovely to look out on and captures wonderful breezes.
The home is jam packed with beautiful spaces.
“We love entertaining and have shared many feasts with friends in both spaces.
“We often pull out the deck chairs and the big screen for movie nights with friends because the breeze through summer on the deck is the best.”
