Welcome to our 1920s worker's cottage in Lutana which is 6 mins drive to Hobart CBD. The cottage has three bedrooms, kitchen/dining, separate lounge and large private backyard with a charming garden. A perfect home away from home.

*Please note there is a minimum two month stay.

The space
The cottage was built in the 1920s with original fittings combined with contemporary interiors. It's newly renovated and perfect for both summer and winter stays, with the gas and electric heating keeping the cottage warm over winter, while in summer the many nooks in the garden and indoors offer shade and pretty garden views.

The spacious kitchen is well designed to create a gourmet meal and stocked with lots of amenities. The dishwasher, microwave, oven, coffee machine and fridge are all new and generous supplies of staples are provided. Continental breakfast essentials and a selection of quality tea and coffee will be waiting for you on arrival. A country Huon Pine dining table seats 6 for dinner.

The front separate lounge room is a comfortable retreat with feather filled couches, many books to read. The television has Apple TV and Netflix, and we provide unlimited free Wifi.

The character bathroom has a deep clawfoot bath with shower overhead. The hot water is heated from mains gas, so it never runs cold.

The cottage is ideally suited for guests on a working holiday in Hobart or those looking for temporary accomodation while they re-locate. The property is also very family friendly and kids can relax in the rear garden on beanbags under the established fruit trees or run wild! The greengage plum tree and enormous apricot tree which has lots of fruit for you to pick and enjoy over summer.

Your house-trained small pets are warmly welcomed. Please provide specific details of age and breed of your fur-babies. Please note that while pets are allowed inside, bedrooms and lounge room furniture are off-limits where possible. There is a maximum two pet limit.

*For those guests who aren't staying with pets, please be assured that great attention is given to maintaining a high standard of cleanliness from allowing the cottage as pet friendly. The property is serviced fortnightly by our cleaners and all lounge room sofas and rugs are professionally steam cleaned after checkout of each guest. All floors throughout the cottage are polished hardwood.

A port-a-cot and highchair are available upon request and lots of children's books and toys available.

There is off street parking for one (large) vehicle in the driveway and plenty of additional free all day street parking in front of the cottage.

The cottage is one of 28 of the original homes in the much admired Lutana Garden Village. The English architect Walter Butler was commissioned to design the housing estate for use by workers of the electrolytic zinc company which was in operation in Lutana in the early 1900s. Twenty eight artistically designed cottages were completed by 1928 creating a wonderful enclave of quaint early twentieth century English-style housing with steeply pitched one and two storey houses. Your cottage is located in the middle street of the three quaint streets of historic workers cottages.
