Investor Matthew Ryan and creative director Wilmar Bouman are selling their 1880 Hobart investment, Corinda.

The Italianate Victorian five bedroom, two bathroom residence was built in 1880 by former lord mayor of Hobart, Alfred Crisp.

The land had previously been part of a convict-run vegetable garden before wealthy timber merchant Alfred Crisp built the main residence. 

Alfred's daughter lived in the house until 1930 before the property became a boarding house for 30 years.

Matthew and Wilmar restored the property and its gardens and have converted the historic outbuildings into self-contained cottages furnished with collections of antiques. 

The pair won a National Trust Preservation award for the restoration of Corinda in 1995.

The 1796 sqm property is currently being ran as a bed and breakfast. The service quarters, coach houses and gardeners cottage are all available to rent for between $265-$315 per night.  

The property is available through Kim Morgan of Charlotte Peterswalk for Property who is expecting $3 million plus for the combined nine bedroom estate.

The couple have owned the property since 1992 when they bought for $325,000.
