Built in 1885, Wellington Terrace lives up to its name with its spectacular uninterrupted views over kunanyi/Mt Wellington over all three levels. The house contains three spacious bedrooms as well as an enormous bathroom, living room, kitchen/dining room, and washroom.
The living room contains a fireplace that is perfect for the cold Tasmanian winters (and summers). Our favourite thing to do is light up the fire and kick back with a nice glass of wine. We also have a 55” Samsung The Frame television with most streaming services available via the high speed internet and many boardgames to enjoy.
A fully equipped kitchen/dining room is found adjacent to the living room, with French doors that open onto the balcony. An oven, air-fryer, conduction cooktop, dishwasher, and microwave are all provided. Dine on an 1870s Kauri pine table from the Barossa. Basic pantry essentials as well as coffee and tea are provided. A gas-heater keeps the room warm when needed.
Upstairs you’ll find two generously sized bedrooms. Room 1 contains a double-sized bed, built-in wardrobe, and a desk for those inclined to work. Room 2 contains a queen-sized bed as well as views over the city and mountain. Both upstairs rooms have wall-mounted electric heaters. A small washroom/toilet is also found.
Downstairs features a third bedroom with a queen-sized bed, desk, and built-in wardrobe. A large gas-heater is provided. The main bathroom is also located downstairs with a mountain view to be had from the bathtub. There is also a large shower, washing machine and dryer.
Finally, a small outdoor cottage garden can be found with a fire-pit for the colder nights. An abundance of herbs, in addition to tomatoes and strawberries (in the right season!), can be found in the gardens.
The space is fitted with many local and overseas antiques that we have acquired from our travels. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
Other things to note
Given stairs are needed to access all areas of this house (including the bedrooms and bathrooms), this house is unfortunately not suitable for those with mobility issues or young children.
There is no off-street parking provided, although there is free all-day parking which is readily accessible on weekends or after-hours, as well as abundant (and free) timed parking. If no all-day parking can be found, the Queen’s Domain offers all-day parking for $5 (distance 100m).
IMPORTANT: THIS HOUSE IS NOT A PARTY HOUSE
We have had to implement the following policy due to a number of recent guests disregarding our house rules and creating unacceptable levels of noise at the house, causing a disturbance to our neighbours.
Our home is situated in a quiet residential area. Guests should not create noise that could disturb our neighbours at any time during their stay.
We have implemented a strict Quiet Time between 10pm and 8am where there is to be no noise on the decks or outdoor areas.
In addition, there should be no excessive noise on the decks and outside areas at any time during your stay and noise inside the house should be at a level so as not to be heard from neighbouring properties.
The house is for accommodation only and is not suitable for parties, gatherings or functions of any kind. There is to be no more than 2 visitors to the house without our prior written consent.
If you do not feel that you can abide by these rules DO NOT book this house. If you do book the house and disregard these rules our neighbours will let us know. You will be asked to vacate the property immediately and may lose your booking fee and deposit.
If you can abide by these rules then our home may be the perfect holiday home for you.
