Description from owner

Description

Splendid luxury at the bottom of the world - a special hide-away with the feel of a luxury, boutique hotel, without the hotel and triple the space! You can check out our reviews by searching for us on other sites.

We now have 3 two-bedroom luxury apartments including this one plus the romantic Monty's Hideway. We tend to receive most bookings either directly or through another service but try our best to respond to all enquiries quickly. We have 100s of 5 star reviews on the 'other' service!

Stay in a spacious, beautifully appointed, self-contained apartment in one of Australia's most historic houses, formerly home to each Bishop of Tasmania for over 160 years until 2003. There are many stories about past owners, residents and guests including Field Marshall Montgomery of WW2 fame. Our family home was built in the 1830s and is set in about an acre of gardens on one of Hobart's most attractive tree-lined streets on the edge of Battery Point - just at the end of our street.

Our family home was built in the 1830s and is set in about an acre of gardens on one of Hobart's most attractive tree-lined streets on the edge of Battery Point - just at the end of our street. And unlike Battery Point/other central areas, we have free parking outside!

Our 110 square metre apartment is at a secluded end of a 3 storey 10 bedroom family home and comprises 1 double bedroom and one twin-bedded bedroom with an ensuite shower room. In addition, there is a large lounge room and sumptuous bathroom on the first floor, divided off and separate from the rest of the house. The lounge has 30 square metres of beautiful dark polished original oak flooring and offers pleasant views across extensive gardens towards the Derwent River. Independent/dedicated access is through an attractive courtyard, separate entrance door and stairs.

The apartment has been fitted out to the highest possible standard. The fully tiled main bathroom features a deep, natural stone bath, a wide floor-ceiling glass walled shower, underfloor heating and fluffy towels from the White Company in London. A second bathroom is ensuite to the Montgomery Room and is also fully tiled with underfloor heating. The apartment has hydronic heating, sound-proofing, draught-proofing and plenty of character. Heat is solar powered from a large scale solar array in the old orchard, supplemented by gas. And there's a hair dryer.
