Converted Birchgrove boatshed with guide of $7m to $7.7m proves popular with buyers
A converted boatshed in one of the inner west’s most popular enclaves is attracting buyers from around the world.
The three-bedroom house at 99 Louisa Rd in Birchgrove has been owned by the vendors for three years and was originally the boatshed for a nearby property.
Listing agent Michael Rava of The Agency-North was originally selling the property via private treaty with a price guide of $7 million to $7.7 million, but strong interest from buyers prompted him to change the sale method to auction.

“It is one of the best on the market,” he said. “We have interstate, international, and local buyers looking at, as well as people wanting to use it as Sydney bolt hole.”
The current owners have spent over $2 million remodelling the home and created a private sanctuary named Palazzo, which is designed with entertaining in mind.
Spread across two levels, the house has living areas on both floors and large terraces to take in the views or host family and friends.
Permanent mooring, a private jetty and boat pen for a large cruiser make this home suited to anyone with a love of boating.
