An old hall etched into the Southern Flinders Rangers’ history books is being sold as a renovator’s dream.
The stone building is the original Black Rock Institute and served as a place for the community to gather when it was built in circa 1913.
More than 100 years on, the building at 34 Railway Tce is on the market with an asking price of $85,000.
Selling agent Jeff Oakley, of Landmark Harcourts SA, said it was a bargain buy.
“It’s got beautiful old stonework and it could be a great place to spend a weekend,” he said.
According to property records, the hall is on a 1000sqm block and it is located 14km south of Orroroo and 45km north of Jamestown.
Mr Oakley said it could be a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
“(Black Rock) was originally just a railway station back in the old days,” he said.
“There’s a renovated church next door and there was an art museum there.”
Mr Oakley said the stonework had stood the test of time but the interior was in need of some TLC.
The vendors, who bought the property in 2014, were in the process of restoring it to its former glory before they decided to sell, so it already has a new roof, gutters and timber front doors.
“It was quite rundown,” Mr Oakley said.
“(The owners) bought it a while back and partially renovated it.
“They bought it to renovate to use as a weekender.”
The main hall area has its original stage and timber flooring, while the rear supper room has been partially renovated.
Outside, there is a shower, a bush toilet and a new septic system, as well as several rainwater tanks.
