Set on 67 acres with over 650m of absolute Richmond River frontage is this spectacular and entirely unique property with established flight training centre.
The John Eggins designed and built prestige home is a spacious and sprawling brick and tile home over two-storeys. It offers unparalleled water views from many of its rooms and the long covered decks on both levels. Every room is generously sized and beautifully finished, with air-con and ceiling fans throughout for comfort; there are 5 bedrooms plus a 6th bedroom or large office with river views, well-equipped kitchen, living rooms on both levels, four full bathrooms, and an extra-large double garage. A private jetty is just a short stroll from the home, so you can take your boat about 11km up the river to the ocean. Being just 4.4km as the crow flies to the coastline, you'll feel the beautiful sea breezes which make this a wonderful place to live.
A separate 4 bedroom (currently used as 3 bed plus office) and sunroom farmhouse is currently rented at $350 per week ('mates rates').
A stand-out of this property is the 550m grass airstrip (north/south direction) with 18x24x5m aircraft hanger, which has 2 classrooms, 2 bedrooms, full kitchen, bathroom, storerooms and mezzanine floor. This previously had an Air Operator's Certificate from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority for commercial operations and is now being used for private flight training operations.
In addition, there's a fully lockable 5-bay steel shed (15x8m) with roller doors and cement floor, plus a 4-bay machinery shed (3.2m high) with two open bays, one lockable bay with cement floor and a workshop bay with power and roller door.
The laser-levelled, frost-free property currently has approximately 6000 macadamia trees, including 4000 of Variety 344, 1500 of Variety 849 and 1000 of MCT to be planted this month. Entire farm is serviced by solar and feeds credit back to the grid. The property has wireless NBN, and good mobile phone coverage.

Property has never run out of rainwater even in the most severe of drought.
