Description

This cosy little house is a rare heritage kit home from Cornwall. Over 100 years old, this bright and friendly weatherboard home has a hand-built wooden kitchen, two brick fireplaces and an open and private sun-filled courtyard.

Emerald Cottage is light, bright, private and cosy and exudes a real warmth and friendliness. Part of what gives it that feeling is the double-fronted entrance, picket fence and hand-hewn front door. Inside Emerald Cottage the cupboards, drawers and shelves are all hand made from recycled wood. It feels like an adult sized cubby house. There is an attic-style bedroom, an old cottage bathroom with original brass fittings, two hand-built brick fire places and a sunny courtyard with a beautiful handmade bench under a tree... I've heard this is a favourite relaxing spot for guests. There are also two open fireplaces that are extremely cosy during this wintery time of year. Emerald Cottage is unique. You won't find another like it.

Location description from owner

The Victoria region

This is one of the best places to stay for walking and public transport. From Emerald Cottage guests can easily walk to Albert Park Lake, South Melbourne Market, the beach and the city. The Malthouse, Melbourne Theatre Company and Victorian Art Gallery are under half an hour to walk. The same with the Royal Botanical Gardens. The Australian National Academy of Music is just up the road. There are three tram lines that are all within a short walk from Emerald Cottage. It is easy to get to the airport, Southern Cross Station and Flinders Street station for further travel. There are also two shopping areas close by - Clarendon Street and Albert Park Village. Port Melbourne is also an easy walk from where you will be staying.

South Melbourne

I grew up in this neighbourhood when it was referred to as South-Port and was a working class suburb populated by immigrants from Greece. Most of my friends were first generation Australian. Their parents came over on the boat, docked at Port Melbourne pier and started getting work in the factories in the area. It was rough and friendly both. People looked out for each other. It's still that way around here.

Now the area between Port Melbourne and St Kilda is one of the most expensive and sought after areas to live in and to visit. No wonder. South Melbourne is near the city, the lake and the beach. It is one of the easiest places to get around, and is walking distance to the best sports, theatre, music and dance venues in Melbourne.

There is a unique sense of community here with young families wanting to establish themselves here, along with those from the old neighbourhood whose children have grown up here, always return or will never leave.... like me!
