Ivy Cottage and The Old Stables

Well situated in the historic township of Richmond, just 20 minutes from Hobart and 15 minutes from the airport, is Ivy Cottage and the original stables, an early nineteenth century single storey Victorian Georgian cottage. A classic example of the period (circa 1835), the well proportioned cottage has a verandah to the street and central door flanking double hung windows. Early on the property belonged to Samuel Evans 1835-7, publican of the nearby Horseshoe Inn Cambridge and then occupied by John Jewel Chief District Constable. Later around 1848, Evans sold the property to John Byron who was district constable for Richmond.  


 There is a leafy courtyard and quant brick pathways between the Ivy Cottage and The Old Stables. Converted some years ago, The Old Stables are now self contained with a cosy living area opening to a kitchen and on the first level is a bedroom and spa ensuite.
