This delightful inner-city gothic cottage was originally built as a wedding gift from an upper class local groom to his bride in the late 1870s, but came into the possession of the Plimmer family in 1911. John Plimmer, often referred to as Wellington's founding father, also lived nearby. The house lies in the shadow of its more modern cousin, the nearby office block, Plimmer Towers, whose current site it originally occupied. Since 1973 the house has been used as a restaurant - Boulcott Street Bistro
- from whose tables you can admire the charming character of the architecture. The doors open at noon daily.
