Penthouse style, Westside is a spacious innercity haven, a sublime combination of contemporary comfort and unique heritage features with high ceilings, magnificent windows and wood work.
100 Elizabeth Street has a long and colourful history. The building was originally built in the 1830s as the Hobart Hotel. The main part of the building burnt down and was rebuilt as it is now is around 1850. The building which houses the renowned "Etties" dining establishment is the original stables and sister accommodation The Hayloft. 100 Elizabeth also boasts what is believed to be the oldest remaining flushing toilet in the country! It is now a feature of Etties restaurant.
Now meticulously restored, Westside Apartment itself also has an interesting history. It has recently been a residence for a long period and before that a piano studio. It must have been a real challenge to get the piano up the beautiful entry stairs! It also seems to have a history as the residence for the old style dentist as teeth were found on site! Recently during renovation works some wonderful very old artefacts were found of one of the residents. For example under the floor boards school exercise books, books and various emblems were found from 1853. The text books belonged to 10 year old John Rout. Research discovered his father had a haberdashery in the building. It must have been an amazing place to live for all it various residents!
