    I didn't need to see anything beyond the very first picture. This is amazing. What a special home! Imagine the history! The rustic charm works for this place...the simple furniture, the rough floors, the minimalist kitchen. I love it.

    i really like it too. it's old and rustic and modern and sleek at the same time. great use of a small space.

    Yeah, I agree. Great mix of old and new.

    it looks so tiny from the outside, as if those rooms couldn't fit in it.

    I'm pretty sure I know where that place is - at the end of Kelly Street in Battery Point, right before you go down Kelly Steps to Salamanca Place. Gorgeous area. Lived in a couple of old places in that area at uni. It was rough as guts in back in the day.... well, up to the early 90s. Then it became boutique. But what's adorable is that you have these tiny streets where the old tenants who bought or inherited these little cottages back in the dodgy days when Battery Point was full of brothels and gin joints still live there, and have refused to sell out to the millionaire yuppies. I loved it. We knew our neighbours, we had a lovely little community of the lovely old working girl who now sits out with her oxygen tank and chats to everyone who walks past, the artists, the families, the uni students... it was great. But the next street over was BMWs and Mercedes where rich yuppies had bought out old houses and renovated them.

    Oh I love that part of Hobart and spent many hours exploring that whole area. We stopped in that square for ages talking to the friendly locals who pointed out all the good stuff to us history nerds.

    I love this place, bleached wood and all.

    I'm ashamed to say I've never been to Tassie. It's on my doorstep and there's a ferry to take me there just up the road. I plan to fix this in 2016 and Hobart is my #1 stop. Then I'm going to stay here at Saffire Freycinet.

    You have to go right now! OK 2016 will do, but seriously Tassie has an embarrassment of riches. I could go there every year and still not have time to see everything I want to.

    Freycinet is beautiful. We stayed at Coles Bay and did the hike to get the view across Wineglass Bay - there were a lot of very sweaty people at the top going "ooooooooh!" once they'd caught their breath. Really gorgeous place.

    And Cradle Mountain has wombats everywhere! You can't even drive more than 5kph at dusk because they just waddle down the middle of the road with no fucks to give.

    I love the front door and that white plastered wall. I'd like to see some window boxes with white flowers.
