I just have to share a little about the airbnb apartment I stayed in when I was in Hobart called Apartment 3 – hosted by the wonderful Jodi! It was fabulous and I loved everything about it. The location was great in New Town which is only a short distance from the centre of town. I have stayed closed to the action previously and as I had my own hire car found it very convenient to pop down the road to North Hobart for dinner. The apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped with everything I could want, and the fridge and pantry were equipped too – I was blown away! It was a two bedroom apartment so I had plenty of room to myself.
But my favourite part was the tree house living room! I absolutely love corner windows and steel framed windows as well – sad that I didn’t get a chance to sketch the window details as I had planned. Every trip to Tasmania, I always make a point of visiting the architecture of John Lee Archer and James Blackburn. Both outstanding colonial architects. John Lee Archer was the Civil Engineer and Architect for the colony and is responsible for many famous historic buildings in Tassie while Blackburn was a convict who designed numerous buildings in a distinct and quirky style and there is a great quote in the Wikipedia article about him. Sadly this visit I missed out visiting their works – but it was great that I could see an Archer church in the distance (St Johns), and when I drove out I saw the tower of a Blackburn – the former Uniting Church on New TownRoad.
Very highly recommended place to in Hobart!
