It is interesting to know the history of some of the most beautiful houses here in Sydney and other cities. It is actually quite difficult to know that they could have once been just an empty warehouse or even a self storage facility full of mobile pods. With some reworks and refurbishment, they have been transformed into an expensive suite.
