The former butchery property on the corner of Gilpin Street and St Marys Lane, Camperdown sold last weekend at $2.6 million.

It started life back at the turn of the last century as a butchery with an attached residence.

It operated until the 1950s when it then fell into disrepair.

The old butcher’s shop at 38 Gilpin Street, Camperdown, has been transformed into a flexible, contemporary living space displaying a contemporary design with industrial elements.

The property has exposed steel framing, polished concrete floors, high bay light fittings and a single stringer, open tread, checker-plate steel staircase rising to the second floor.

There are two living rooms divided by an EcoSmart fireplace and twin doorways. 

Old bricks from the original structure have been used to make garden beds on the 220 sq m block.

The pre-auction price guidance had been $2.7 million to $2.8 million.

It last traded for $579,000 in 2007.
