You won't believe what's in the living room of this converted brewery

por Scott McWhae (2021-07-26)


A historic brewery in a trendy Melbourne suburb has a swimming pool sunk into the floor of the living room with a retractable glass ceiling overhead.

Stacked over five storeys, the 19th century house in Richmond, three kilometres east of the cbd hemp direct reviews, is regarded as one of the city's most iconic warehouse conversions.

The one-of-a-kind home, which boasts a 'vertical garden' designed by award-winning Collingwood landscaper Phil Withers, has three enormous bedrooms each sprawled over an entire level, four bathrooms with luxurious freestanding bathtubs and a chef's kitchen complete with a butler's pantry and $3,000 Vintec wine fridges.

The garden is supported by steel scaffolding that complements original warehouse materials such as exposed timber rafters and a pully system for lifting barrels, which have been lovingly preserved throughout the property.

Current owners Tim Danielson and Athalie Williams had dreamed of living in the brewery for decades before finally taking the plunge and buying it in 2015.

Listing agent Scott Patterson, who is overseeing the sale of the property for realtors Kay and Burton, told Daily Mail Australia it's a rare find as one of a just a handful of warehouse conversions in Richmond.

Mr Patterson said the warehouse was built on one of the highest points of the suburb, giving it sweeping views from every window.

'In the main bedroom on the top floor, you feel like you're sitting on top of Richmond,' he said.

But Mr Patterson agrees the standout selling point is undoubtedly the pool and retractable glass ceiling, which were installed in the 1990s in what he believes would have been 'an extensive process' at the time.

'Even when it's raining, you can leave the roof open and the rain drops down into the pool,' he said.

Mr Patterson said he has shown 'about 20' groups of prospective buyers around the house, including a concert pianist looking for a tranquil practice space.

'There's a piano in the middle of the living room and you can only imagine what it's like playing in there when the roof is open and there's rain pouring into the pool,' he added. 

The brewery is on the market with a guide price of $3million to $3.3million (AUD), with expressions of interest closing on March 5.
