Up the hill from the North Hobart restaurant strip and minutes from Salamanca and MONA, you'll love returning to HillHaus for stunning, uninterrupted views across Hobart and the River Derwent.
This three bedroom, 'upside-down' home was designed in the 1960's with a nod to Frank Lloyd Wright and has since been tastefully renovated to include ducted heating, polished concrete floors, gourmet kitchen and electric blinds.
The ground floor features three bedrooms, all with queen-sized beds. Two rooms include built-in robes whilst the third - more spacious as a result - has a small sitting area. There is also a trundle bed that can be requested to accommodate a 7th guest and is best set up in the Grey Room. All rooms have spectacular views over Hobart. Finishing out the ground floor is a full-sized bathroom that includes a shower-in-bath and a separate toilet.
Open plan living and dining for six takes advantage of the 180 degree views of the city. The gourmet kitchen includes an induction cooktop with separate gas hub, integrated Liebherr double door fridge/freezer and Miele dishwasher as well as all the cooking utensils you'll need for a lovely dinner. Chill out in the lounge with seating for 6 and smart TV with free access to Netflix and more.
The house sits on an elevated block, with landscaped native gardens with sandstone features, established plants and trees and several relaxing sitting spaces. Look out for the local wallabies, if they're not foraging on the property you'll see them down the road. The secure backyard also offers the bonus of a gate providing direct access to the walking and cycling tracks of the Knocklofty Reserve, perfect for those who like to get outdoors.
The house is exclusively yours during your stay. Access to the key is via lockbox which means arrival at any time after check-in is acceptable.
A further note on access. As it's name suggests, the HillHaus sits atop a quite hefty hill. For guests, this means a small flight of 15 stairs to access the property. Whilst there is a driveway, it is steep and difficult to navigate. For the safety of all guests it is advised not to use the driveway and instead park in the all day spots directly in front.
Interaction with Guests
Both the owner and house manager will be available via mobile for any issues during your stay.
HillHaus is located in Mount Stuart, a safe and friendly neighbourhood on the outskirts of the city. By car, the CBD/Salamanca is a short 10 minute drive and MONA can be reached in 15 minutes. The popular North Hobart restaurant strip is right down the road, 3-5 minutes away.
Given the hilly nature of the area, a car is advised however there is a city bus bound for the city that leaves regularly from the end of the street. A taxi to and from town is around $15.
