New Life Cottage

New Life Cottage is a lovely little three-bedroom house, all on one level (see photos below). With polished floorboards and newly painted, it has a really cosy feel. Situated just 4.5 km from the city, it is close to the CBD and has great public transport access.

All our properties are fully functional houses with a full kitchen. They are all within 4.5 km from the Brisbane city centre and all are immediately adjacent to a bus stop directly to the city. The internet facility is free of charge however the supply is not guaranteed. Each property is equipped with a washing machine. All properties are close to supermarkets and if it is a coffee that you are after, all of our properties are within walking distance to one or more coffee shops.

– a bakery

Ashgrove shopping precinct and restaurants are just a 15 minute stroll or a 3 minute drive down the road. Ithaca Creek is around the corner and along this creek there is a walkway/bikeway that goes all the way to the city in one direction and is 30 minutes by foot into the bush and forest walks of Mount Cootha in the other direction.

History and internal layout

New Life Cottage owes it’s name to the fact that the house was an old maternity hospital dating back to 1890, and was picked up and moved on a truck from the nearby suburb of St Johns Wood to it’s present location. It is also located on a road which is a sacred Aboriginal path to Mount Cootha – called the place of the Honeybee Dreaming. So lots of history.

Accommodation is as follows:

  1. Queen bed in the main bedroom
  2. Queen bed in bedroom 2
  3. Single beds in bedroom 3 plus trundle bed if necessary
  4. Port-a-cot available free of charge for those with a little one (on request)

All three bedrooms radiate out from the large living room with adjacent dining area.

New Life Cottage is one of two side-by-side semi-detached houses. Hope House is the other and they share a common internal wall.

Parking: Off-street parking is available in the bay adjacent to the house and on-street parking is available in the side-street nearby. There is no charge and there is always space available.

New Life Cottage is perfect for accommodating families, couples or business travellers, whether holidaying, relocating or migrating.
