"Farm Cove" held in the Paech family for over 60 years, is located in the undulating curves of the Rockleigh Hills and offers an ideal country lifestyle only 15 minutes from Murray Bridge, and 40 minutes from the Barossa Valley.

The homestead is significant to the area, and those travelling will surely recognise this grand old lady of the Rockleigh/Tepco area.

A split level cellar and former meat smoking room is oozing with character and would easily convert to its former glory (does require some work) Stone car garage with electric remote door, attached carport with roller door plus stone and brick paving all add to the character and charm on offer.
The landscape consists of approximately 65 acres of farming land with the balance being elevated rocky outcrops with far reaching views. The perfect country lifestyle to run a few sheep, ride horses or motorbikes or just enjoy the peace and tranquility of nature with no close neighbours, except wildlife and bird life.
Shedding comprises a 2 stand shearing shed and 15m x 9m open front implement shed.
There are some ruins on the property that adds to the lifestyle appeal on offer. The property is connected to mains water and there is a bore equipped with submersible pump but has not been used for many years.
Excellent opportunity to secure a country lifestyle property close to Adelaide and regional centers yet feeling like you're miles from anywhere.
