About the property

Eclectic mix of old and modern, treat yourself to a light filed home with indulgent bathrooms, cosy corners, surround music systems, brand new kitchen, private garden with beautiful trees & view of Mt Wellington - and all within 5 min walking distance to restaurants, cafes, parks, grocery and gift shops.

Built, designed and created for your enjoyment our home has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing experience in Hobart.

Only 20 mins walk via the main road or rivulet track to town, after which you can come home and luxuriate in a deep claw foot bath with private views of the mountain. Or cook up a meal in the new kitchen and relax in the two lounge rooms while you watch Netflix or peruse entertainment on the smart tv.

Maybe you would prefer to relax in the backyard with a bevvie and watch the sun go down behind Kunanyi (Mt Wellington).

Set on a large city block, we have 3 bedrooms; 2 queen bedrooms, one with Romeo Juliet balcony looking at mountain and the other with a sunroom. The kids (double single room) has a bay window looking out onto a grotto garden.

Our home is filled with light - there are two large skylights with views of the heritage listed eucalyptus tree out the front.

The house was built around 1860's and renovated in the 70's by a well know environmental architect.

It has been further renovated and designed to include a grown ups wing, with peeked roof upstairs and sound system in the dressing room (so you can get ready to your favourite tunes), all centred around a bathroom designed to be able to see the stars and mountain in privacy.

What makes this house unique

Our cottage has many amazing features and features architecture from an old church that was transported to South Hobart in the 70's. Beautufully restored and set into a convict workers cottage built around 1850's. The cottage has lots of sky lights which make our cottage very light and shows off the beautiful trees around the cottage.

Our stay here was a highlight of our trip!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was in a great location, easy walking distance to Salamanca Markets & downtown Hobart. We all loved the owner’s style and collection of antique curios scattered throughout the cottage. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed for cooking at home. Our host even dropped off fresh eggs from her own chickens! We also loved the Bluetooth stereo which had speakers throughout the cottage. Would definitely stay here again!!!

Fantastic thoughtful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Fantastic safe backyard for the 5 and 85 year olds to explore. Lots of quirky little conversation pieces throughout the property. Lovely cottage garden to sit and relax. Lots of thoughtful additions from theowner, such as emergency toiletries, bath salts, local info, dressing gowns and slippers for all, extra blankets and some pantry basics. Thankyou for the billion and one towels as I hate to use a damp towel. Sorry for all the washing. Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay and would definately recommend to others.

Great cottage in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this charming cottage - Sam has provided everything you could need and more, and she was a pleasure to deal with. The views are lovely and it is just a few minutes walk to excellent local shops, and a pleasant walk to town along the rivulet path. The cottage is compact but thoughtfully laid out and there was plenty of room for 5 of us. The electric blankets on all the beds were appreciated.
