Image: Markree House

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.
