Cozy house in Hobart just 150 m from a beach

Only 15 minutes from Hobart our home is in a quiet neighbourhood and a small beach about 150m walk down the bottom of the street. There is a bus stop at the top of the street that goes directly to the city.

We have a large garden with three chickens and a cat. There are two bedrooms available, one double bed and one single. Our house is quite cosy, it has a heat pump / air conditioner which keeps us warm all year and an open fire (and wood) for when it’s really cold outside!

Kitchen has conventional cooker + microwave and dishwasher. We have one bathroom and a second WC. Front load washing machine but no clothes dryer.
