TANUNDA HOUSE

about

History

HISTORY

Built in 1910, the house was first owned by Theo Geyer, church organist and piano merchant. Theo operated a home business, displaying his pianos in the front room of Tanunda House.

 

Extensively renovated in 2012, Tanunda House is a seamless blend of historical grandeur with grand proportions, pressed ceilings and wide hallways with expansive modern spaces, amenities and stunning garden and grounds.

Now a family-owned business, we look forward to welcoming you and your guests into our space and sharing this unique part of history with you.
