If you are a real shopper, then Byron Bay and the Gold Coast are a comfortable drive away. If you enjoy your water sports or just like to watch the dolphins swim by, then this clean, calm, wide stretch of river is right on your doorstep. Stroll down to your boat and fish the mighty Clarence River or reach the open sea in 8 minutes. This truly is a tree-change with a sea-change.

Drive through the wetlands along the private roadway right to the entrance of this contemporary, north facing “Australian” residence. The natural park-like lanscape surrounds the spacious family home, right to your own private sandy beach, the jetty and boat landing.

The position and aspect of this property are perfect. Park in the double garage or double under cover space and enter the residence by wide hardwood decks. The feel is of being on a ship at sea with the bow overlooking your property, your private beach and the river and beyond.

At ground level, there is a huge party deck with stunning views across the property. The views overlooking the Casuarina forest, stands of paper barks and wattles are nothing short of sensational!

The garage and separate office are on this level also. Upstairs is a further entertaining and dining deck, together with a separate deck from which the 3 bedrooms open. Walk into the polished timber floored open plan living, dining and kitchen space with its 5 burner Smeg stove and the walk-in pantry.

Floor to almost-ceiling glass doors surround the living area to take full advantage of the river and wetlands views. The ceilings are extra high, the louvre windows ensure good air flow and the down lights give even light in the evening.

From the living room and over the breeze-way are the master bedroom with walk-in ‘robes and a spacious full bathroom, 2 further large bedrooms that share a second full bathroom, a separate toilet. There is another spacious living area at this end of the house also. Every single room has a magnificent view!

Some further features of this property are its 50 metre private, sandy beach, private jetty and pontoon with winch-assisted dry berth, spring fed well, lake-like dam, pristine native flora, 140 species of birds and visiting kangaroos.

The property enjoys town water and electricity and the school bus to public and private, junior and secondary schools, is a level bike ride away. The property is zoned general rural and, ultimately, will be developable. It is well fenced and is very capable of grazing 20 head of cattle or perfect for horses, with discovery trails at your door.

This property is either your new “home” as it has been to someone else for the past 5 years, or it is perfect for development as an eco-style tourist resort. It is the ultimate lifestyle property.

The downlights throughout the area are generous enough to illuminate the beauty of the house. By the way, Aurora Lighting's exciting new Low Energy video @ http://bit.ly/5N7e6S

Couldn't agree more – good lighting is the ultimate way to illuminate the best aspects of a home.
