An amazing lifestyle property with expansive water frontage and a beautifully restored Queenslander set on the sweeping bend of Sportsmans Creek. An idyllic location offering 114 acres of prime agricultural land with magnificent panoramic views. With an added bonus of a fully self-contained one bedroom studio adjoining a large raised shed, providing many options such as guest accommodation, a teenagers retreat or a source of income supplement.

THE RESIDENCE - Built in a period when attention to detail was 2nd to none. The elegance and relaxing ambience of the home is inspiring and whilst there have been many new additions to this gorgeous Queenslander, the combination of old and new come together beautifully. Lovingly restored the home features many traditional characteristics such as high ceilings, vj walls, polished timber floors, French doors and some stunning light fittings. It also boasts a massive covered deck area with pitched roof and exposed timber beams, that takes full advantage of this picturesque riverside setting and rural surrounds. Views you also get to enjoy from the kitchen and dining area that features a double set of glass French doors with matching fixed windows. A well lit area with exposed red mahogany beams and a stylish 2 pac kitchen with large breakfast bar. Just off the kitchen is a large lounge room with a bay window and wood fire that adjoins another spacious living room with a pool table and French doors that lead out to a 2nd covered verandah that wraps around the front of the home with partial ramp access. Two of the three bedrooms plus a study also have access to this verandah area, which also captures glorious views of Sportsmans Creek. Finally it would be remiss of me not to mention the huge master bedroom with bay window, walk-in robe and a sizeable ensuite complete with claw foot bath.

THE STUDIO/SHED: Privately positioned away from the main residence the fully self-contained one bedroom studio has reverse cycle air-conditioning with a covered deck off the front plus parking under. It adjoins a large shed with ramp access.

IMPROVEMENTS: Town water, a 15KVa generator hard wired into the house, rainwater tanks, solar hot water, ADSL high-speed Internet to both the home and studio, wall and ceiling insulation, landline, and strong mobile reception.

THE FARM: The property borders the national park and is divided into 11 cell grazing paddocks with excellent fencing (with secondary electric fencing). There is town and tank water reticulated to stock troughs, 2 dams, quality steel and timber stockyards plus an old dairy that can be used for storage with power and water connected to it. This income producing property has been consistently running a minimum of 50 beef breeders but could cater for 70 head of cattle all year round. During wet times there is a private 20 acre crown lease for use as high ground that would be assigned to the new owners.

THE LIFESTYLE: Sportsman's Creek is a tidal deepwater creek that links up to the main arm of the Clarence River. Perfect for boating enthusiasts that enjoy fishing or water sports, with a bbq down by the waters edge and a jetty. This idyllic location would be great for family get together as there is ample room to camp by the waters edge. If your really lucky you might even get to see some dolphins frolicking in the river. Situated just on the outskirts of Lawrence village, conveniently located approximately 20 minutes from both Grafton and Maclean and just a short drive further from some of the best beaches on the North Coast.
