Grand old B&B on the market
A HERITAGE-listed bed and breakfast property on Hobart’s Eastern Shore is on the market.
Orana House in Lindisfarne, built in 1907, has been run as a bed and breakfast business since 1986.
It is advertised for sale through expressions of interest, with a price guide of more than $2 million.
The property features a manager’s residence, 10 bedrooms with ensuites, a kitchen, laundry, guest lounge, breakfast room, garage, workshop, store areas and shed. Although renovated, the house contains original features, including high ceilings, bay windows and open fireplaces. It is in an elevated position, with views to the River Derwent and Tasman Bridge.
Stan Stasek and Nanne Sorndee have welcomed thousands of guests to Orana House since taking over management in 2008.
Mr Stasek, 59, who has a background in mechanical engineering, migrated to Tasmania from the Czech Republic. He said he enjoyed meeting people from different walks of life.
Mr Stasek, a part-owner of the property, said he would be prepared to continue running the business if circumstances permitted.
Listing agent John Blacklow, from Knight Frank, said there had been a lot of interest in the property.
Expressions of interest are open until November 14.
