Its not often that you get the opportunity to purchase a property with the credentials that this stone cottage has to offer in the peaceful township of Waterloo in the Mid North.

Waterloo is the birthplace of the legendary outback mailman “Tom Kruse” and this property is where he was born and lived as a young boy.

The cottage itself comprises of 4 main rooms with a passage down the middle. The cottage requires restoration, but the bones are there for someone looking for a project to bring the cottage back to life.

As well as the cottage there is a large colorbond garage, 12m x 7.5m x 3m with sliding doors on both the front (east) and north side. Full concrete floor and external aprons across front and two thirds of the northern side. The personal access door opens into the 3m x 3.25m bathroom/laundry which is fully lined and insulated.

The property is serviced by a 15,000 litre RW tank (Bushmans) fitted with an Onga Pressure pump and Aqua Pack Pressure tank. Waterloo benefits from a high average rainfall so operating a household on rainwater even as a permanent resident is no drama at all. The kitchen and bathroom/laundry are served by an electric HWS

All of this is set on 3 separate titles and 4 Allotments totalling 3990m2.

The Heysen & Mawson Trails are nearby, the adjacent area has many areas suitable for bush walking, horse riding and motor bike trail riding. Kapunda, Burra & Clare are each around 20-30 mins away with Auburn only 15mins due east.

Arrange a private inspection today as at this price the country retreat won’t be on the market for long.
