When mixed-media artist James Powditch and his wife, graphic designer Diane Adair bought their Annandale home, it was just an empty shell of a warehouse.

Now its being marketed as one of the best warehouse residences in Sydney. The listing photos show the couple's collection of industrial and vintage furniture and contemporary art.

BresicWhitney agent Chris Nunn has a $3.5 million price guide for a June 24 auction.

Initially the 320 sqm building had only windows and a roller door facing the street when the couple paid $1.05 million before its conversion in 2010.

With the help of architect friends, Powditch designed the home which included the addition of a second story mezzanine level and an internal courtyard.

Offering 500 sqm of internal living space, the modern home features exposed concrete walls, original steel and blonde timber.

It has five bedrooms.

Powditch said the building reflects his aesthetic through a sense of logical order, raw materials, reuse and layering.

Annandale's last sizeable warehouse sale was when the former chief executive of Tourism Australia, John Morse, secured $1.2 million.

Set on a 241-square-metre Nelson Street block, the converted warehouse had been bought for $981,000 in 2009 and then re-roofed.

The property previously traded at $850,000 in 2005 and $352,000 in 1997.
