Circa 1860 - The Totness Inn - Approx. 4149sqm

For business or pleasure? Rarely does an opportunity such as this present itself to the buying public. If only the walls could talk – there would be many a yarn to be shared!

Constructed during the 1860's this grand pub is being offered to a wider market. Bring your long-held vision alive here amid thick stone walls and 592sqm of operational space.

Perhaps this will be your new home with the upper level offering 10 rooms, 2 bathrooms and a kitchenette. Couple that with the chance to pursue a long-held business vision on the ground floor where the potential is only limited by your imagination. Options might include a cellar door, wine bar, B&B, tourism, brewery, food venture - the list goes on (subj to council consents).

External improvements are extensive and include a large shed (ideal for that car collection) the old stables for storage (or the occasional themed party!) plus the original coach house for carriages which is now a substantial shed for vehicles with laundry and adjoining store area.

Positioned on the cusp of the Barossa/River Murray playground, the Totness is one of a kind. A rare offering, ready for the new custodian and it's next chapter. Is your destiny calling you?
