Property Watch: Tighes Hill warehouse conversion with unique rooftop courtyard

Emma Hinchcliffe is not exactly sure why she and her partner Brook Bodiam are selling their Tighes Hill warehouse conversion.

Mr Bodium built the unique home, thoughtfully laid out over four levels and offering a rooftop courtyard with district views.

Ms Hinchcliffe has worked in real estate and is marketing the property through an expressions of interest campaign with a price guide of $1.2 million to $1.3 million.

The couple bought the warehouse in 2009 before converting it.

“We wanted a warehouse that my partner could build cars in because that’s his hobby, to build hot rods,” Ms Hinchcliffe said. “It’s huge and it was just perfect for us.”

The residence at 11 Bryant Street has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, open plan living and parking space for 10 cars.

RARE OFFERING

A four-bedroom home with wraparound verandah on 2.6 acres in a tightly held pocket of Belmont North has hit the market for the first time since 1988 with a price guide of $1.7 million to $1.85 million.
