Servant’s Residence c1840
In the 1840′s Henry Bilton’s estate totaled 350 acres and was valued at 180 pounds which made the property one of the most valuable in Hobart Town.
He built a servant’s residence at the rear of the main house in which eleven workers, three convicts and one ticket of leave holder resided. The servant’s residence today features existing 1840′s fabric from the original building. The original staircase, hardwood floors and fireplaces within the two bedrooms have been restored and timber shingles still exist beneath the new roof.
The Servant’s (downstairs) and Convict Room (first floor) feature chiropractic pocket spring queen ensembles, 50 inch LCD TV’s, private dining area and share a bathroom on the first level of the residence. The bathroom has a extra large and unique original Victorian claw foot bath with shower. The bath was custom made for the Brewery Manager in the early 1900′s and was rescued during the renovation of the Cascade Brewery in 2013. Both rooms share a communal kitchenette with fridge/freezer, microwave, espresso coffee machine, kettle and toaster and enjoy views south over the nearby Collins Cap and Mount Wellington.
