A little house that was once a shop, where time slows just enough....

Why Jamie Heffernan chose Maldon
Why this home? Because it's such a distinctive feature of the town, one that everyone knows and loves. We love that it has a former life as a shop with its distinctive shop window. It's comfy and modern in all the right place, and has lots of vintage and antique bits and pieces that reflect our interests. It has lots to keep you occupied here - but it's also so close to town, and right at the start of the Maldon-Castlemaine trail if you're feeling active. And we love that it's right by the station, with the choof of the steam as it comes and goes, and that horn tooting in the distance - we're sure you will too!
What makes this House unique
The Shopkeeper's Quarters you see is the outcome of extensive restoration and rebuilding. The funny little old cottage that was about to collapse has become a lovely place to be, with heaps of care and attention to detail that has made it the special experience it is. It's where the best of old Maldon, meets modern needs... A quirky old cottage with a wet room and modernised kitchen; a turntable to spin a disc of jazz or bluegrass; those beautiful linens and antique quilts and fabrics. And of course the location, with walking trails into the reserve, or into town, right at your doorstep.

Relaxing In time...
Such a beautiful renovation & property, the interior design has been done so tastefully. The space in useable as well as pretty! Loved it!!!
My parents owned a cottage in Maldon when we were kids so I love this quaint timeless country town. It was my partners first visit. He also loved. Shopkeepers Cottage was delightful. A thoughtful and amazing restoration of our history with beautiful attention to detail. We loved the record player and the fire and made it a cosy and super fun getaway. We will definitely be back.
Vintage Shopkeepers Residence
Loved our 3 night stay at this restored/renovated cottage. Kate has done a terrific job of restoring this building. Very comfortable cottage with a large rear yard. Jamie was exceptionally welcoming.
Glad you enjoyed your stay, Tony! The next time you visit I hope to meet your gorgeous dogs in person... and the garden will be a bit further along with some new plantings planned. A few changes inside as well!
Quaint, well equipped house with a beautiful yard
Absolutely loved our stay. Great relaxed getaway.
Glad you enjoyed your Christmas stay, Melissa - I'll make sure the aircon filter isn't overlooked next time. Look forward to hosting you and your dogs again!
