Previously a Church Hall & dance studio now a private luxury house, near North Hobart’s Restaurant strip. Built 1928 the Sunday School is spacious, open floor plan dining/living area, well equipped kitchen,granite bench & outdoor courtyard. Enjoy the ambience of a renovation with modern comforts yet respecting the building's heritage. Great heating, Wifi, books, games, art, large deep bath, walk-in shower, lamps, dimmable lights, please read the reviews.

The space
Built in 1928 as Sunday School & Kindergarten, later used as a dance studio & recently renovated, the Hall now offers private luxury studio style accommodation. The large main hall has lounge seating, dining table, and desk plus the “bedroom”area which is screened off by a long well-stocked double sided bookcase and a robe. For more casual meals dine at the granite topped island bench in the fully equipped kitchen or relax in the courtyard.

There's a Queen size bed and 2 long single beds (with advance notice & for 2+ nights they can be combined to form a king bed) . Please note there are no actual "bedrooms" as such, its large but all under one ceiling.

The large living and dining area is warmed by a wonderful gas log fire, extra Dyson heat/cool/airpurifier is also on site. Interior décor is elegant, luxurious and welcoming, the timber floors are scattered with large deep-pile hemp,wool and hide rugs. All lighting is dimmable (yes even the bathroom) for a romantic night in.

The kitchen, entry hall, bathroom and powder-room/laundry can be closed off with double doors but the main area is effectively open plan. The main bathroom has a large walk-in shower and deep freestanding bath, overhead heating and heated towel rail. Bathrobes, Hair dryer and GHD provided.

Entry is via a separate entry hall, there’s also a second toilet /powder room/ laundry with washing machine and dryer. Detergent provided.

Its a couple of minutes walk to the cosmopolitan North Hobart Restaurant strip with galleries, shops and theatre plus pubs, gourmet grocery, restaurants and cafes offering a myriad of cuisine styles. There’s breakfast cafes and a park with playground nearby, the CBD and waterfront are about 15 minutes walk or about $8 by taxi, MONA is 10-15 min drive but the ferry is more fun!. Parking is in the street & there's usually a spot at the front gate.
We don't provide or cook breakfast however you will find cereal, milk, tea, coffee etc. ARE provided.
A Cot and High Chair are available free of charge but stored unless requested on booking, so do let us know if you need them.

Where you’ll be

North Hobart, Tasmania, Australia

North Hobart is a foodies paradise,, nearby Elizabeth Street is an "eating" street with bars, restaurants, cafes, breweries and more... yet nearby the street where the Sunday School is located is a no-thru-road so its relatively quiet.
The iconic State Cinema shows mainstream or arthouse movies there are art galleries within walking distance..
Easy (flat for Hobart!) 15 minute stroll to city or waterfront. 15 minute drive to MONA, however the ferry is highly recommended.
The Sunday School built 1928 is at the rear of a former church built 1896 but they face different streets so entry is private. North Hobart a hundred years ago was very much a "working class" suburb, its now very sought after as a residential area within walking distance of CBD. The Sunday School is in a street-mix of small houses and workshops, which means the street is usually empty of cars evenings and weekends.

Your host is located in the adjacent property (an 1896 church) so just one gate away if you need local advice or to raid the church herb garden, yet totally private if that's what you want. I work in PR & travel a lot but when home I'm a serial renovator so I hope you enjoy the ambience at the Sunday School, as I've tried to create a luxurious modern living space while preserving the soul of the building. Just one block away is North Hobart's iconic State Theatre for mainstream or art-movies and for foodies there are restaurants galore.... In addition to The Sunday School I also manage my daughter's Airbnb property Mandalay Cottage in North Hobart which is 2 streets away if you are coming to Hobart with friends.
