SET on al­most 25ha of gen­tly un­du­lat­ing pas­tures, a Paris Creek hobby farm is the per­fect place for a life­style change. With views stretch­ing to the Coorong, the prop­erty cap­tures the coun­try life­style, with room for horses or a num­ber of cat­tle in the sur­round­ing pad­docks.

Nearby, the town of Mead­ows has a cor­ner store, bak­ery, butcher and pub as well as a coun­try mar­ket on the sec­ond Sun­day of each month.

The prop­erty is a 10-minute drive from the his­toric town of Strathal­byn and a 45-minute drive from Ade­laide.

The present owner says the prop­erty of­fers a great life­style for any­one mak­ing the move from city liv­ing or down­siz­ing from a larger farm.

Hav­ing pre­vi­ously down­sized from a farm of 200ha, the ven­dor says the home is per­fect for ‘‘some­one from a big ru­ral prop­erty who wants to re­tire but still have a few cat­tle – or for some­one with horses’’.

‘‘It would be a per­fect tree change,’’ the ven­dor says.

The house pro­vides a per­fect place for en­ter­tain­ing guests, with a very suit­able large out­door area.

The in­te­rior lay­out of the home is de­signed to pro­vide pri­vacy for guests. Two bed­rooms and a bath­room at one end of the house are par­ti­tioned by French doors.

‘‘It’s ac­tu­ally like you’ve got you’re own lit­tle area for guests,’’ the ven­dor says.

‘‘Then you’ve got the kitchen, din­ing room, lounge room, of­fice and mas­ter bed­room.’’

The liv­ing and din­ing rooms in the cen­tre of the home can be com­bined by open­ing the large bi-fold doors, cre­at­ing a cosy fam­ily space com­plete with a com­bus­tion heater. The house also fea­tures a large kitchen, re­verse-cy­cle air con­di­tion­ing and has power from 20 so­lar pan­els.

There also is an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe in the mas­ter bed­room.
