Kubba Roonga, the Blue Mountains guest house where Sir Donald Bradman took Jesse for their 1932 honeymoon, has been listed for sale.

It’s a rambling 1915 Blackheath guest house now with seven ensuited bedrooms.

Normally associated with Bowral, Australia's most famous sportsman had a soft spot for Blackheath, having knocked up his fastest century – off 22 deliveries – at the local cricket oval shortly before his 1932 stay.

Kubba Roonga has a AAA fours-star rating.

Set about 120 kilometres from Sydney, Kubba Roonga sits on 1,315 square metres of English-style gardens close to the spectacular Grose Valley.

The house has open fireplaces, polished timber floors, and stained glass windows. There’s a commercial kitchen and restaurant dining space for house guests.

Ray White Blackheath agent Peter Torok has it for July 1 auction, along with the adjoining 695-square-metre Arcadia Road property, which after its 1915 construction served as the manager’s cottage.

The guest house is tipped to fetch more than $800,000 and the manager's cottage more than $380,000.
