The perfect place for a tree change
A Paris Creek hobby farm offers views to the Coorong, room for stock or horses, easy access to the city and a home fit for the entertainer, writes Thomas Conlin.
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.
