Ideal if you are working away from home, holidaying for any length of time or an overnight stay on the way through to your destination.
This cottage accommodation is unique in Broken Hill - it has an in-ground pool. If you don't always enjoy a dip, you can relax inside. It's welcoming, light, airy and comfortable. It's the perfect place to relax after walking in the dust and heat around the local attractions that include Pro-Hart Gallery (2 streets away), The Sculptures and Silverton. Put your feet up and watch an assortment of DVDs.
The cottage was built in the 1930s - a 'Tinny' made from timber and corrugated iron. The floors are timber and the kitchen bluestone tiles. The cottage is self contained has 2 main bedrooms (a third single room is also available). The main bedroom with mirrored built in robes has a queen size bed, the other bedroom has a double bed. Each bedroom is comfortably appointed with superior blankets, quilts and fresh linen. The queen and double rooms have splity system reverce cycle airconditioning and heating. It's on a main road, however the trucks en-route from Adelaide to Sydney do not drive past the cottage - their route is a block away. Local traffic is not busy - although this does include some trucks (but they're not using their brakes and creating lots of noise).
The Pool House has a fully appointed kitchen including an electric stove and oven, George Foreman grill, sandwich maker, deep electric fry pan, round electric skillet, sauce pans, nutri bullet blender, baking trays and small and large utensils. The kitchen is a bit tired and needs some attention - that will be done in the near future.
The open living and dining areas are tastefully decorated and has a 6 seater timber dining table which is great also for playing board games and cards.
The laundry has ironing facilities and a washing machine. There is no dryer, just fresh, clean air to dry your clothes - for the time being.
The iron and timber bathroom has a roll top, claw foot bath with overhead shower and separate toilet. The shower head has optional sprays and a charcoal filter ensuring water softness. The toilet is also accessible from the outside pool area.
You will be comfortable with air conditioning to cope with the heat. A split system is installed in the OPEN plan area to cope with humidity during summer and provide warmth in winter. A wood combustion heater (you can buy wood locally) is in the lounge room.
The yard is secure with 5 and 6ft high fences and has off street parking with a gate that closes.
Adjacent to the secure pool is a pergola area with large 4 burner hoded BBQ with plate and grill and a 9kg gas bottle. The gas is free but you must clean the BBQ after use.
There are 2 tables and chairs in different locations for your outside dining or a grassed area for your relaxation with 2 comfy Adirondack chairs.
(Note: All efforts are made to ensure the pool is available for swimming at all times. April - October pool is maintained once weekly and during November - March the pool is cleaned twice weekly for regular swimming. If leaves bother you, scoop with the equipment. The pool equipment is in top conditions however unforeseen problems can occur rendering the pool unavailable. All efforts will be made to rectify this - no refunds apply to pool unavailability.
