Extraordinary River Front Property

Finding a home of this size and quality, in a setting that is pristine and private, and one that overlooks the majestic Buffalo River is nigh on impossible. However currently an opportunity does exist to secure such a property in the beautiful Buffalo River valley. This is a home that will have you being the envy of all family, friends and guests, one that offers a mix of character through its use of high quality building materials, with a splash of modern living in its styling and design. One that allows so much of the outdoors to flow inside through its extensive glass and one that is perched on the banks of the Buffalo and has without doubt one of the most stunning outlooks as the river bends right in front of you with the valley as its backdrop.

The home itself taking inspiration from high mountain chalets, has soaring ceilings that rise to a second level featuring a flybridge that connects the mezzanine living space and upstairs bedroom with bathroom.

Those high ceilings add to the already evident sense of space giving you that immediate feeling that this home was built to entertain. Dining space for a dozen or more, bar, large kitchen with further dining space, slow combustion log fire warming the extra large living area, multiple access points out on to the wrap around decking and all eyes are drawn outside to take in the setting, views and to watch the passing of the rambling river.

This home is personal; it compliments the vision of the owners to enjoy an international piece of Canadian architecture with a contemporary flair for an Australian natural environment.

A one bedroom self contained guest cottage is attached to the main house by a breezeway. "Riverbend" sitting on over an acre and a half with the current configuration of 3-5 bedrooms offers excellent versatility with rooms that could be used for a further bed and breakfast option, an office from home, a recreation/billiard room , a teenagers retreat or an in - law suite.

The garden is fully established, with roses, shrubs and mature river gum trees. A sprinkler system is serviced by a 3 phase pump and a 2MEG water license. A swimming pontoon is accessible by steps that lead from the garden to the river. A secluded entry with large hand made wrought iron automatic gates lead down a winding tree lined driveway. There are also two small paddocks that could be used for further accommodation, a tennis court perhaps or swimming pool.

There is extensive shedding for five cars, caravan parking, large tool shed, garden shed, possible two stables and horse fencing if required. No flooding on this elevated river front property has occurred at any time.

The discerning buyer will appreciate the ambience and appointments of the home as well as the beauty, tranquility and seclusion of its setting in the Buffalo River Valley. It is situated only 3kms from Myrtleford, 30kms from Bright, 24kms from Beechworth, 45 minutes from Albury and 1 hour 15 mins from Falls Creek and Mt Hotham ski fields.

The key to this unusual home is its functionality; it allows options to be a multi - purpose large family home, a holiday home or income generating investment property. It is one that will not disappoint and one that you need to inspect to completely appreciate just what it has to offer.
