With the city of Hobart nearby, St Ann’s is comfortably located at the top end of the city in a quiet residential area. Its original development from the 1830's has undergone numerous transformations, but still retains its historical charm. Hawthornden was built between 1831 and 1836 and is a National Trust house which has been carefully preserved as part of the total redevelopment of St Ann’s Davey Street.
St Ann’s enjoys a prestige location in a leafy part of town. Hotel-like in appearance, the heritage building features a red brick and yellow coloured render. The 1960 expansion consists of large wards and was renovated in the early 2000's. There are three units that are located over two floors. Intensive planning has created a design specific to the needs of residents, with a level access environment of the highest quality for both high and low care residents.
111 beds (36 in dementia)
There are three different units – two of them are on one floor and one on another. Each unit has its own kitchenette with a dining room attached. Rooms are largely the same with slight variation in size and features, but offer different views.
