280 Riverbank Road, Lower Southgate is a spectacular lifestyle property with an expansive waterfront, a fully renovated 4 bedroom river home and a productive Macadamia plantation. The 4.4Ac (approx.) property offers an idyllic location with productive alluvial soil and is situated on the bank of the Clarence River, the largest river south of the Tropic of Capricorn, on the east coast of Australia.
The residence is built to take full advantage of its position with the large deck looking over the lawn, down to the floating pontoon and berthing area and onto the river. This is where this property is a cut above the rest, with its 300m of deep water river access giving you uninterrupted access to the river. Allowing you to take advantage of everything the Clarence has to offer, from water skiing, wake boarding, sailing, skurfing, kayaking, fishing or just swimming, there’s plenty to do to keep everybody entertained. This property is a water lover’s paradise. The deep water pontoon and berthing area, which was professionally installed, gives you the opportunity to moor your boat or yacht right at your front door, putting you at the ready to take advantage of any breeze that comes up.
The beautifully renovated house sits comfortably on the river bank surrounded by lawn and a beautiful tropical garden. The front door opens and you are welcomed into a large casual living space with views out onto the river. The kitchen extends from this area and offers high end appliances, plenty of bench space, a butler’s pantry and access to the large covered entertaining deck.
The deck is the jewel in the crown, as it gives the connection between the house and river. Its uninterrupted views across the river allows you to sit back and watch the ever changing ebbs and flows of the mighty Clarence, the chance to spot Dolphins and entertain to your hearts content. The bedrooms are large, light and airy making them very inviting with two at one end of the house and two at the other. The main has ceiling to floor built-in’s and a door out onto the front verandah. The formal lounge room and bathroom are renovated to the same high standard, giving you a house ready to move into with nothing to spend. There is a second shower down stairs to use after a day on the river and a second toilet in the laundry off the deck.
The tropical gardens are well thought out and offer pathways through the gardens to the river side gazebo, another area to relax and entertain in. This area leads you to the Macadamia plantation, which is productive and can produce up to a tonne of nuts annually. The plantation also includes Coffee, Olive, Pecan, Plum trees and numerous other fruit trees including Mango and mixed citrus. There is also a large fenced vegie garden and chook house with auto water supplies and feeders. The property is fenced into 4 paddocks to define and manage each area.
The time has come for the current owners to downsize and hand their riverbank property on. They do this knowing everything is ship shape and ready to go. The memories they take of their time living here will last a life time, and the fact that if you need a bottle of milk, just jump in the boat and head to the shop via the river, will not be forgotten.
The opportunity to secure a home right on the river does not come every day. So if this life sounds like yours, now is the time to act.
