House Hunter Monica Kovacic visits a warehouse conversion on Goulburn Street

Warehouse conversions tick all the best boxes – they provide the historical, industrial edge Sydney urbanites crave, while also giving them the contemporary comforts they're accustomed to. This inner-city, double story apartment is a case in point – its edgy, bespoke fittings are attractively contrasted with high ceilings and the soaring original windows, which are now double glazed. The fact it straddles the border between the CBD and Surry Hills isn't bad, either – walking distance to both work and post-work booze.  

While it’ll most likely be snapped up by a young professional couple, the apartment could potentially suit a family with small children due to the three relatively spacious bedrooms, double story space and security parking. The apartment's fittings are evidence of the owners' fastidious interior design standards, with the inbuilt bookshelves and accompanying ladder in the first level bedroom being a particularly impressive touch. The concrete floors and exposed brick wall carry through the warehouse feel of the apartment, and keep it grounded in its history.
