The Prince of Wales stables at Fingal in Tasmania remain listed for sale with a $145,000 asking price.

The Tasmanian heritage listed building adjoined the Prince of Wales Hotel which burnt down in the 1920s.

Set on the island's north east, the colonial sandstone stables date back to the 1840s.

William Augustus Solomon was the licensee in the 1870s.

"The Prince of Wales stables are a fantastic link with our Tasmanian heritage," the Roberts Longford agents David Headlam and Jeff Carins note.

The 170 square metre at 57 Talbot Street, Fingal is an untouched example of colonial craftsmanship with the unrestored property coming with cobbled floors, horse stalls, feedbins and with a feed loft upstairs. There's also small stable hands accommodation.

"Truly a project in the view of Grand Designs," the marketing says. The 3,845 square metre property comes with a separate two room timber cabin, ruins and a winter creek.

The property has been listed since late 2010 with no change in its asking price.
