Markree, an intimate house, museum and garden, is one of Hobart’s hidden treasures. Built in 1926 for Cecil and Ruth Baldwin, the house and garden reflect the influence of the Arts & Crafts movement, epitomised by the self-conscious mark of the maker and hand-finished details. Markree’s 1920s Tasmanian oak and blackwood furniture is by local cabinet makers Coogan and Vallance & Co.
