This is a lovely converted barn in Moonah, great for families or a private getaway. The Moonah Barn is part of a unique and historic 1820's property – one of Hobart’s first – with a beautiful private garden and courtyard overlooking New Town rivulet.
It was converted in the 1950s, but recently it's had a complete makeover - with polished hardwood floors, and a beautiful gardens.
'The Barn' is situated in a residential suburb that is only a 10-minute drive from both Hobart CBD and MONA.
The kitchen is fully equipped. 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.
We have bikes available on request -- the city is a 20 minutes ride away along the bike track, which runs within a stone's throw of The Barn'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 Barn is equipped with a television, DVD player and a DVD library.
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.
