Secluded gem on the Clarence River
580 Purgatory Creek Road, Lilydale NSW 2460
A secluded, luxury lifestyle with postcard views and a superb production capacity combine in this truly unique gem on the Clarence River.
Overlooking one of the most productive bends on the mighty Clarence, this 908 acre property has the size, scope and presence to be classed amongst the top echelon of river grazing properties on the North Coast.
Situated at Lilydale, just 30 minutes drive from Grafton, the modest farm gate on the driveway hides a secret and private oasis for you alone to enjoy.
Sprawling views across the Clarence River to Apple Tree Flat, Lilydale and out to the mountain ranges beyond are enough to take your eye away from the high quality homestead.
Make no mistake, this is one of the best built homes in the district, right down to the smallest details.
It is not its fault it was built on arguably the best vantage point between The Gorge and Yamba.
Polished rose gum hardwood floorboards and enormously generous rooms are a feature, as are the natural granite benchtops and custom built fireplace.
No expense has been spared in finishing the home to the highest standard.
Even the laundry has a view that would sell an apartment in Vaucluse!
The vendors estimate a carrying capacity of 200 breeders and the pasture improvement work and sections of naturally blessed alluvial soils combine to make this block worthy of a serious grazier’s consideration.
Established rhodes grass, kangaroo grass and wynn cassia pasture mixes run to bahia and paspalum covered clearings and native grassed timber belts.
Good stands of native hardwood are present and ready to be cut, and previous selective harvesting by a true timber-man mean there are generations of logs to come off the ridges in years to come.
Forget business for a moment.
Fishing for Australian Bass and Eastern Cod should be high on the summer to-do list, as is a barbecue picnic with friends on your own stretch of river paradise.
Deep river pools run to shallow rapids in a canoeists dream run down to Copmanhurst where you can finish the paddle with a cold schooner at the Rest Point Hotel.
Good shedding, an old farm house in dilapidated condition and solid farm infrastructure including split post fencing and timber yards complete the package.
Please watch the video to enjoy a sample of what this special bend of the Clarence provides, and then call our office to arrange your private viewing.
The time has come for our vendors to downsize, and we welcome your inspection and offers on what is a magnificent tribute to a lifetime vision for their “dream farm.”
