Business development manager at Jellis Craig Stonnington, Richmond & Surrounds Kristen O’Connell said that while warehouse conversions are common in Abbotsford, this one is unique.

“This property has been very well thought out in terms of layout and it offers a versatile floorplan. It has been very well maintained and beautifully styled by the owners which has allowed us to obtain attractive photos, which is what has drawn tenants to the property.”

Large glass bi-fold doors let ample light flow into the living and dining area along with a sunny balcony to enjoy the inner-north atmosphere.

Primed for entertaining, the large kitchen features Bosch appliances and a gas top stove.

Ms O’Connell said interest around the property has been steady since making the listing live.

“We have seen almost double the page views that we would normally see for the short period of time it has been online. The first inspection was well attended with multiple applications being received,” she said.

The rental is located just a few blocks away from Abbotsford Convent and Johnston Street where tenants can find a wide range of top-rated cafes, bars and restaurants.

Ms O’Connell said she had noticed more interest in the inner-city markets than usual with the return of the international renter.

“Since restrictions have eased, we have certainly seen an increase in tenants moving to the Inner East. In the last 2-3 weeks, we have also seen a strong return of international renters from Singapore, UK and South Africa, which is very positive for our marketplace as well as our local hospitality and retail community.”

Rent for 7/2a Mollison Street is $850 per week and it will be available from 18 July.
