"We've had this one 17 years and we built the house.
"My kids have loved it.
"We've raised beef calves out the back and they've had a pet cow."
The home is only a short walk into Picola, where excellent sporting facilities lie.
The home has four bedrooms and a study, is surrounded by lawns and garden, and features an above-ground swimming pool.
The property has town water connected and a 12-megalitre irrigation licence.
"The 10 acres (4ha) is lasered, so we'd water it for feed for the cattle we've had," Deborah said. "We've also got two big, fairly new rainwater tanks that we've got on the shed, so we've got plenty of rainwater, too."
The shed is 60m x 30m and has a concrete floor and power connected.
There are two fenced paddocks with stock troughs in each.
There is also a set of cattleyards and a silo for grain storage.
Deborah said they would be sad to say goodbye to the property.
"We've had to relocate our business," she said.
"My husband works in Cohuna now so we've bought over there.
"If it was our choice, we wouldn't be going - it's just for work."
The property is about half an hour northeast of Echuca and about 40 minutes northwest of Shepparton.
It would make a top family home but also has potential as a weekender, given it's close to the Barmah National Park and only 10 minutes from the Murray River.
