A self-contained apartment with 1-bedroom, modern kitchen and luxury bathroom only 5 minutes from Hobart. Meticulous attention has been given to the refurbishment to reflect its 1950’s heritage to create a stylish space and ensure absolute comfort.
The self contained apartment is built within an architect designed 1950s house which featured on the cover of Home Beautiful magazine in 1951. Many of the original features of the house have been retained within the apartment.
The intimate bedroom looks onto an attractive garden and the original classic 50s dressing table and wardrobe have cute drawers for your socks and things.
The luxury bathroom has a mosaic tiled floor, a shower, a lovely old pedastal basin, a generous bath for serious wallowing, large fluffy towels and sweet smelling toiletries.
Cooks and food lovers will be at home in the functional kitchen. It is perfectly equipped so that when you return with an armful of tasty Tasmanian treats, cooking a delicious meal is as easy as pie.
A free generous breakfast basket is provided for the first morning. This will consist of free range eggs, sour dough bread, juice, seasonal produce and fresh milk.
There is a retro dining table and chairs and the sitting room is warmed by a glowing gas log fire, perfect for reading, watching a new flatscreen television or enjoying your favourite music on the ipod Bose docking station.
The furnishings and original artwork compliment the relaxing interior.
Outdoor chairs provide space for you to enjoy the the sweet songs of the birds while you sip a coffee in the morning or a glass of Tasmanian wine at the close of the day.
Private off street parking is available at no additional fee.
The apartment access is via a security coded door lock which is changed for every guest. Prior to arrival a personalised code will be send by SMS to the guest which will allow access for the duration of their stay.

I live in the beautiful leafy suburb of Sandy Bay in Tasmania with my wife Marilyn. We have lived in Melbourne, London, Sydney and now Hobart. We have travelled extensively throughout Europe, America and Asia and enjoy experiencing new cultures. We are lovers of fine food (Tasmania is a great place for fabulous produce, wine and restaurants), the visual and performing arts, music and the finer things in life. We both work, myself with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and Marilyn with the University of Tasmania.
