Corindas Cottages; three historic self-contained cottages in the Glebe, on the Queens Domain, in Hobart.The Glebe is one of the oldest and quaintest areas of Hobart with views across the city and Mt Wellington.
The original Corindas cottages were built in the 1850, and when the main building was completed, in 1880, they became the servants quarters. Alfred Crisp, the original builder, was a wealthy Hobart timber merchant who later became Lord Mayor of Hobart.
There are now three beautifully restored, self-contained guest cottages accommodating two persons in each: the Servants quarters and the Gardners Cottage, which overlook the cobbled courtyard on the Aberdeen Street side, and at the front of the house, in the formal garden, is the Gardners Cottage. Each restored using a mix of antique and contemporary design.
What gives the cottages their unique appeal is the imaginative way they have been decorated using colour and bric a brac.Each year Corindas garden is a feature of the Open Garden Scheme.
