A former confectionary factory transformed into a grand abode has come to market in the heart of Collingwood.
Once the home of sweet treats like coconut rough and peanut clusters, Everfresh Snowball Co ran its original factory at the venue in the late 1930s until the 1980s.
Now, the renovated three-bedroom home at 97 Keele St is listed with $2.6m-$2.8m price hopes.
Nelson Alexander Fitzroy partner Rick Daniel said it was an art deco building converted by the previous owners.
“It’s an interesting space, having sold warehouses in the past, I think what buyers really warm to is the fact that they’re all very individual and quite low maintenance,” Mr Daniel said.
“You’ve got lots of space to entertain and I think people really enjoy that about a warehouse.
“There’s character throughout, from the high ceilings to the exposed beams to the brick work; all of that together in this really quiet, inner-city oasis.”
He added that the home had good accommodation with three bedrooms and several living areas.
“The part of the home, the kitchen and open plan living, is an area where the current owners spend lots of time, it’s got lots of natural light,” he said.
“It’s got this nice roof terrace which comes up the second level which the owners use a fair bit as well and it’s a great place to barbecue.”
The kitchen features a large island bench with marble counters as well as integrated appliances, a built-in coffee machine, and a six-burner stovetop.
In the large main bedroom there are two sets of mirrored built in robes and an ensuite with a marble-topped vanity.
Another bedroom on the upper level has an ensuite and built-in cupboards as well.
The abode also offers both a rooftop garden and a landscaped courtyard.
