A Brisbane home listed for $2 million on the property market has proven why you should never judge a book by its cover.
The warehouse conversion in Fortitude Valley was originally built in 1920 and used by blacksmiths. But the property has come a long way since then.
Hiding behind its original ornate Art Deco façade stands an elaborate split-level home incorporating both indoor and outdoor spaces.
The four bedroom, five bathroom property is fresh off the back of a five year renovation by owner Samantha Jones and has been described as a “blend of the old and new”.
“It is a very forward thinking design… the quality of it is amazing,” Ms Jones told realestate.com.au.
Designed by architect Yuri Dillon, the design has managed to incorporate several modern elements alongside original features such as existing doorways and the warehouse’s timber beams.
Several features include a master suite with walk-in wardrobes, an indoor swimming pool and even a separate loft apartment.

And despite putting the home up for sale, she says she will miss the unique development.
