Many stays may claim to be your home away from home, but Hodgson House really is – and it’s because this two-storey terrace is actually someone’s home. Hodgson House’s owners move between here and their country property, Hazeldon House near Daylesford, so this Richmond pad isn’t your ordinary holiday rental. It’s filled with the owner’s art and collections, plus a smattering of personal touches.
Hodgson House works for a couple or single traveller. Downstairs is the main living space, with a lounge, dining room and kitchen. Wander out the French doors into a private courtyard; the perfect perch for reading the morning newspaper, nibbling on treats you’ve picked up from local cafés or enjoying a sundowner after a day spent exploring Melbourne. Head upstairs and you’ll find the generous, light-filled bedroom and the bathroom.
A garage has space for a car (there’s also a permit for on-street parking) but Hodgson House’s location makes it easy to leave the car at home. The house itself is tucked down a quiet street in Richmond, one of Melbourne’s most happening suburbs. Bridge Road is brimming with hip bars, restaurants and cafes, and is only a short walk away. Some of the city’s famous landmarks – Melbourne Cricket Ground, Yarra Trail and Royal Botanic Gardens – are within walking distance too. If you forget to pack your comfy shoes, just jump on a tram.
