Anyone looking to get their hands on the ultimate secret hideaway will be left disappointed after an incredible warehouse conversion was snapped days after going on the market.
From the outside, it’s hard to see why the blue and red industrial storage building would attract so much attention after being put up for sale.
But it quickly becomes clear once you step through the door to discover the seller has converted one of the warehouse spaces in Mawson Lakes, Australia, into his very own ‘man cave’.
It’s been decked out with a private gym, bar and car workshop used by the previous to indulge in his favourite hobbies and entertain friends.
The building also comes with bathroom facilities, retro arcade machines, a three-tonne car hoist, fully-stocked kitchen, plenty of storage and CCTV for security.
Andrew Harvey, of property agents Raine & Horne Salisbury, didn’t reveal the final selling fee but said the offer was “very close to the asking price” of about £204,000, as reported by Realestate.com.au.
The 176sqm space found a buyer just three days after the for sale signs went up with potential buyers left in awe of the conversion.
“It sold in three days, a gentleman with the same thought process purchased it,” Andrew said. “There was some good interest. We showed three lots of people through and I’ve had a couple of emails since.”
The space is the crown jewel in a string of 10 warehouses on the road, and Andrew added: “It was certainly a nice place for him to spend time and work out, have friends over and store his prized possessions.
“Rather than clog the house up with that sort of thing, it was good for him to have a separate place to go.”
The warehouse remains listed on the market because the deal struck is still subject to finance – meaning there’s still a slight chance it could be back up for grabs again.
