600 Longreach Rd, Longreach



Anyone who admires Sir Arthur Boyd's iconic Shoalhaven River paintings will fall instantly for this idyllic five acre property on the peaceful upper reaches of the river above the town of Nowra.

The current owners have enjoyed the beauty and serenity of the location for the past 28 years. It's a wonderful place for children to grow up, they say. It's quiet and lovely and it's delightful to sit on the verandah and enjoy the filtered river views and watch the birds, the resident wombat and the kangaroos that wander in every evening. It really is a beautiful place.

We've enjoyed swimming in the river, taking our boat upstream on the weekends and fishing for flathead and bream. Once we even caught a flounder!

When the current owners moved to the property it was a bush block. We lived in a bus on site and cooked on a camp stove for about three years with our young son before building the house, recall the owners. The house was steel frame and brick kit home with a Colorbond roof and eight foot wide verandahs. The verandahs are Australian hardwood and the window and door frames are all maple. Every room opens out onto the verandah through French doors.

The large Jarrah timber kitchen is truly the heart of the home, opening to a spacious open plan living and dining area with laminate floating floors, a slow combustion stove and air-conditioning for year-round comfort.

The main bedroom features a large walk-in robe and ensuite bathroom while two other bedrooms have large built-in robes. The main bathroom is extra roomy, with a full bath and large shower recess, and there is an additional shower and toilet in the laundry for washing off after a day out in the bush or at the beach.

As well as the large and comfortable house there is also a big shed with workbenches and room for a boat with an attached carport. Four 20,000 litre water tanks ensure there is never a lack of water.

The house is positioned well above the river and is not prone to flooding. The property lies at the end of a tarred road and school buses come to the front gate.

This peaceful location feels miles away from anywhere, yet is only a 15 minute drive on a tarred road to the Nowra CBD, and just 30 minutes to Berry and the many beautiful beaches from Shoalhaven Heads south to Jervis Bay.

This beautiful property would be the ideal South Coast tree change and is going to auction in the New Year so call Tim McGoldrick on 0414 157 794 to arrange a viewing as soon as possible.
