Cool conversion with a mint history in Carlton North
Buyers will be licking their lips at this sweet warehouse conversion.
One of six townhouses inside the former S.T. Nunquam confectionary manufacturer at 16 Newry St, Carlton North is up for grabs with a $1.75 million price tag.
The circa-1916 factory operated for about 80 years with “residents of North Carlton waking to the fragrance of peppermint … for many decades”, including some that lived on site, according to the Carlton Community History Group.
The land was sold in 1999 and the internal cottages were knocked down and replaced with modern structures in 2000.

Nelson Alexander Fitzroy agent Roland Paterson said he visited the peppermint factory before it was converted.
He said it was cool to see the conversion inside the “old-school factory from the black and white movies”.
“The property retains a lot of its warehouse flavour including exposed beams at the top, industrial-style kitchen and the heritage facade,” Mr Paterson said.
“It still has that history and romance but with all of the modern conveniences inside.
“It offers the best of both worlds.”
The S.T. Nunquam ghost sign is prominent on the facade.
A bedroom, versatile study, separate laundry and a garage are on the ground floor.
The first floor is split across two levels, with the open-plan living domain downstairs and the main bedroom with an ensuite upstairs.
A home theatre which opens to the rooftop terrace is on the top level.
Mr Paterson said the vendors moved to Port Melbourne for family reasons.
“They were undecided about selling for a long time because they loved the space,” Mr Paterson said.
“The property is perfect for a young professional couple, downsizers and maybe young families as well.
“We have had a few offers but nothing to take it off the market.”
The property last sold for $1.21 million in May 2015, according to CoreLogic.
