two cottages, each including 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom

These classic Georgian cottages were constructed c1840, when Battery Point was a bustling colonial settlement, at the far end of the Empire, populated by whalers, ship-builders, convicts and all manner of rogues. Even back in those tumultuous days, these cottages enjoyed similar elevated views over the roof tops of Battery Point. Under current ownership, the two cottages which are still on one title, have been thoughtfully and elegantly transformed into stunning residences, predominantly utilised for popular short-term accommodation, known as “The Hampdens”, where they have received 110 five-star reviews in just over a year of operation.

Read the reviews on AirBnB to appreciate why guests have fallen in love with The Hampdens in Battery Point. Each cottage provides for two bedrooms, one beautiful oversize bathroom/laundry, a lovely lounge-dining area with cosy gas fire with Georgian style surrounds (7 Hampden provides for a second lounge) and a modern light-filled kitchen incorporating stone bench tops, near new white joinery and leading kitchen appliances and full height splash-backs. It is hard to envisage a more coveted and convenient location. Nestled in amongst some of the most finely preserved Georgian and early Victorian streetscapes in the country. Step outside into Hampden Road village, home to local restaurants, Jackman McRoss Bakery, thriving pubs and more. A short stroll into perennially
popular Salamanca Place, Princes Park and vibrant Sullivan’s Cove, home to leading bars, eateries and festivals such as The Taste and Dark Mofo. The property is being sold as two residences on a single title and inclusive of premium standard furniture and contents (not artwork – which can be
acquired separately) and an inventory list can be supplied to interested parties.
