National Trust may sell off historic house

 

The historic Les Hansen House, built in 1942 on a large block corner Bath Street and Stuart Terrace, may be sold by the National Trust.

The Darwin-based CEO of the trust, Elisabeth Close, says the sale is being "discussed" because the trust has not been able to lease the property, it can't find a tenant and it is very expensive to maintain it. By ERWIN CHLANDA

Heritage under fire

Residency is at risk, says heritage group

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

 

The NT Government is planning to call for "Expressions of Interest" from the public for leasing the heritage-listed Residency building, thereby opening up the highly likely possibility it will put to commercial use, such as offices, cafe or restaurant. This should be opposed, writes Domenico Pecorari of Heritage Alice Springs Incorporated.
