Located in a quiet street Hodgson House is a beautiful two storey home with its own garage. It's close to EVERYTHING and is within easy walking distance of the MCG, AAMI Stadium, the Tennis Centre and the wonderful Fitzroy Gardens. In fact you can walk to the city if you need to stretch your legs (only 35-40 minutes), or you can take one of two trams to the city (just 6 stops!) or another along Church Street to either Victoria Street (often called Little Vietnam) or across the mighty Yarra River (!) to trendy Chapel Street in South Yarra.
On arrival you will be greeted by a tinkling fountain. Step inside and downstairs there is a spacious entrance hall with a lovely open plan living and dining area with gas log fire. Our art and collections from our travels are much admired and there for you to enjoy. French doors open onto the private courtyard - perfect for relaxing after a day exploring. Of course there is reverse cycle air conditioning throughout.
Upstairs your generous bright and comfortable bedroom can be set up with either a king bed or two singles. Your own bathroom with separate shower, bath and toilet are right next door. (our bedroom suite and office will not be available)
In the fully equipped kitchen there is also a table to enjoy the morning sun whilst reading the papers and sipping a coffee!
The laundry has both washer and dryer and iron and ironing board
If you are driving there is a one car garage and we will also provide you with an on-street Parking Permit.
We spend our time between two homes - the other is a country retreat just an hour from Melbourne - Hazeldon House in the Macedon Ranges region.
Richmond is a vibrant, eclectic suburb and is just one suburb from the city centre. Once working class there have been enormous changes in the last 15+ years with new houses (Hodgson House included!) vying for position with small workers cottages, mansions and converted factory warehouses giving it a vibrancy and excitement which the outer suburbs just can't offer. It is changing daily. Shopping, cafes, restaurants and markets are right on the doorstep.
We'll provide a list of suggested restaurants - within walking distance - for you on your arrival. After all why not have a holiday rather than slaving over a hot stove or barbeque!
Do come and stay.
