Grand old B&B on the mar­ket

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWS - CAMERON WHITE­LEY

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.
