Our architecturally designed extension combines light and practicality with heritage charm of a cottage. It comfortably fits 5 people & is centrally located in cbd. Enjoy bright modern space with all adelaide has to offer on your doorstep!

The space

We have undertaken major renovations and designed a truly remarkable space. With loads of windows & tall ceilings, the result is a scandinavian inspired space that's sympathetic to the original worker's cottage. Some of the painting edges still need cutting in.

Downstairs there are two living rooms, the older part of the house features the original fireplace with exposed red bricks and the newer room opens onto a Japanese inspired courtyard with pond and bonsai. There is a galley kitchen with dishwasher and stainless steel appliances plus a downstairs bathroom and dining room. The dining room has a large bifold window that opens onto rear garden with a window seat for summer evenings.

Up the whitewashed wooden stairs, there are two bedrooms (with blackout blinds) with wardrobes; one has a king bed and single trundle while the other a queen bed. There is a bathroom with large freestanding bath and separate shower. Plus a separate toilet and washing machine. There are stunning views over the rooftops and to the city lights from the many windows.

Up to the third level there is a newly completed terrace to eat dinner and watch the sunset.

Guest access

Whole house except for downstairs third bedroom which will be locked and storeroom.

Interaction with guests

We will be off site but contactable by phone or email.

Other things to note

The house has ducted temperature controlled evaporative air conditioning so you can have the windows open and a cool breeze blowing out but still being environmentally friendly.

We were in Adelaide for a mini-break and Ginny's home was perfect as centrally located so could easily walk to city locations plus it had the added bonus of street parking. There are great restaurants and coffee shops close by all adding to the character of the area. The home was as described online and everything was exactly as we expected.

The place is beautiful, and close to everything you need to see in the city area. Renovation was recently done. There are a few nice touch in the house, such as the garden next to the living room, the roof top balcony, skylights etc. The evaporative cooler worked fine, but on the 38 degree day (rare day for Adelaide), the house felt really humid inside. Overall the stay was great! The smoke alarm went off in the middle of the night once. Ginny said it might have been a blackout or something that reset the alarm, so it went off (as a test run?). It was only one time

We had a very comfortable stay at Ginny's beautiful cottage. The house is located in a quiet side street and in easy walking distance to the city centre and the free public transport. Beds are super comfy and the house is light filled and surrounded by a small but lush green garden and courtyard which we found very pleasant. Also, the small balcony is great! Ginny has been a very flexible host and a pleasure to communicate with.

So close to the city centre you can walk just about everywhere. It's whisper quiet as the house is tucked away on a little street.
