A converted hall on a historic property - one of Hobart's first - with a walled garden courtyard and views of Mt Wellington
'The Hall' is a unique property in a residential suburb that is only a 10-minute drive from both Hobart CBD and MONA. It's a one-bedroom spacious cottage, which has been completely refurbished and beautifully but simply furnished. Additional beds can be set up on request.
The cottage is part of a historical property that was originally built in 1820 -- one of the first built in the New Town/Moonah area. It has a convict-brick walled garden on one side and a covered area on the other side, complete with a barbecue and an outside dining /sitting area looking on to green lawns and fruit trees -- the perfect place for relaxing and soaking up the sun. There is also a small vegetable and herb garden for our guest enjoyment.
The kitchen is fully equipped, with beautiful Huon pine features. The sitting and dining area overlook the walled garden and are bright, sunny and very spacious. There is a wood burning fire with plenty of wood available to make it all the more cosy in the winter months. The bathroom has been recently remodelled and provides all essential items, including a hair dryer. There is also a washing machine. Wifi is also available, for free.
For the more energetic guests, we have bikes available on request -- the city is a mere 20 minutes ride away along the bike track, which runs within a stone's throw of The Hall's location. The bike track runs all the way to MONA, which is also a 20-minute ride by bike. Both rides are easy, scenic and enjoyable.
The Hall is equipped with a television, DVD player and a DVD library. There are also some interesting books on the bookshelf .
A selection of breakfast can be provided at a small cost , which might consist of artisan breads from local bakeries (Pigeon Hole, Jackman and Mccross, Zum or Daci and Daci), jams, muesli, freshly stewed fruits and yoghurt, free-range eggs, and tea and plunger coffee.
Beautiful medal-winning Tasmanian pinot noir from a small boutique winery are available to taste and purchase.
Moonah is located on the northern side of the city and is easily accessible to all attractions. There are good coffee shops and bakeries within a 2-kilometre radius and some good cheap eats are close by. Supermarkets are very handy (walking distance and a 2-minute drive), as are some specialty shops.
The Hall is also close to the eating strip of North Hobart and the wonderful iconic State Cinema and art galleries and many sporting venues including State Hockey centre, netball centre, basketball centre, Aquatic centre and Domain tennis centre and the Blundstone arena is a short drive...
Parking is available off road at The Hall on request.
Public transport is easily accessed and the approximate taxi fare to Moonah from the CBD is about $20.00.
