Holly Cottage

Situated on the high side of the street in the revered Wombat Hill precinct, this 1900s miners cottage abounds with character and personality.

A disarmingly modest façade belies an interior that takes everyday materials and does something extraordinary with them. Contrasting dado walls cosily align with the original Baltic floors, the 3 light-filled bedrooms off the central hallway are full of intrigue and the central living and separate kitchen/meals belong in Country Style magazine, down to the 1940s wallpaper made from original magazines found during renovation works.

The bathroom arouses a strong, visceral reaction, with an original stained glass church window filling the room with natural light.

The outdoors is no less interesting: a 100 year old holly tree forms the centre piece of the garden which maintains a kaleidoscope of colour all year round, and the arbor and firepit celebrate the gathering of friends with ease.

Recent works that have been carried out include:
New instantaneous gas HWS
Rewiring and new light fittings
Replumbed
Restumped
Ducted heating and split system air conditioning
Insulation under floor, in externals walls and ceiling
90% of external walls clad in new weatherboards/ timber frame replaced where needed.
Original roof iron re-screwed
New front fence
Bathroom re-tiled throughout

Holly Cottage is the result of an organic, reflective approach to a renovation. Using eclectic materials and recycling the old to match with the new is a lesson in pragmatic elegance and that is the masterstroke of the home. Continue using it as a B&B or adapt it is a convenient weekender or a permanent home, the choice is yours.
