HOME BUSINESS: Ever thought about moving to the country and running a small town's post office? Pictures: Raine and Horne.

Tree changers from the city are looking to buy churches, even town halls in the country - how about the town's post office?

With a unique opportunity on the Lower Eyre Peninsula at Cummins you could do just that.

This business and home have been under the control and care of the current owners since 1996.

The house, business and post office building are on the market together for $690,000.

Two mail delivery motorbikes are being thrown in as well.

Located on the main street of Cummins about 70 kilometres north of popular Port Lincoln, population about 700, the post office is still well used by locals.

The business building itself includes a large carpeted display floor area, sorting tables and service desk.

The post boxes and work area flooring have been renewed in the past year.

Alongside those improvements, a new roof and carport have been added in the last two years.

Also included in the sale are the delivery motorbikes, and the purchase of a delivery van is negotiable.

The three-bedroom home next to the post office features a modern kitchen with a tiled flooring, dishwasher, wall oven and large island bench.

Adjacent to the kitchen is a spacious, carpeted lounge with a wood fire heater and reverse cycle air conditioner.

It has a large backyard, ample rainwater storage which is plumbed to the house plus a single car garage which has power and a cement floor.
