Furniture maker Nicholas Dattner did not sell his redundant 1862 Collingwood kiln warehouse apartment at its weekend auction.

It was passed in at $1.35 million.

It was fitted out in 1999, with copper fronted kitchen benches after it was bought for $280,000. 

The three bedroom 16/26 Wellington Street apartment had been tipped to fetched $1.35 million to $1.45 million at its hockingstuart auction.

Dattner thought about selling in 2007 but wanted $1.7 million for the apartment which was part of the sprawling former Carlton United Breweries operation that stretched from Victoria Parade to Gipps Street.

The brewery stopped work in the early 1990s.

Dattner long maintained a property at Chewton, near Castlemaine, then buying 60 hectares nearby, at Harcourt where he built an ultra-modern place inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright.

It has been leased for the past six years given his move to the Castlemaine district.
