RIVER­STONE House, on 2.68 hectares, is a beau­ti­ful life­style op­por­tu­nity. This dis­tin­guished and spe­cial home presents a chance to be part of liv­ing his­tory.

River­stone House is a stately land­mark trea­sure that of­fers an un­be­liev­able op­por­tu­nity for buy­ers to pur­chase a truly ex­cep­tional acreage es­tate.

Built in 1935 by the Al­ley fam­ily, the grand his­toric homestead sits on a pic­turesque 2.68 hectares (6 acres) of land, half of which is flat, flood-free pas­ture, suit­able for graz­ing and hor­ti­cul­ture, with the pos­si­bil­ity for sub­di­vi­sion in the fu­ture.

Gen­er­ously spa­cious, this won­der­ful home em­braces you with a com­fort­able and wel­com­ing am­bi­ence the mo­ment you en­ter.

The pala­tial veranda is the heart of the home, a place to re­lax with fam­ily and friends, per­fect for large-scale wed­dings or in­ti­mate par­ties and fringed by lush plant­ings of trop­i­cal trees and flow­ers.

For lovers of nos­tal­gia, the homestead is breath­tak­ingly beau­ti­ful, re­veal­ing loads of nooks and cran­nies – in­ter­est­ing rooms with glo­ri­ous scope to show off your pre­cious pieces.

The high ceil­ings, dec­o­ra­tive fret­work, french win­dows and pol­ished floors all add to the magic.

In mint con­di­tion and set in park-like sur­rounds, River­stone House is an his­toric land­mark home, and fea­tures a caterer’s kitchen, loads of un­der­cover out­door space, ma­ture fruit trees, easy-care trop­i­cal gar­den and a huge bore-fed veg­etable gar­den. There is also a swim­ming pool to the rear.

This mag­nif­i­cent es­tate of­fers fam­i­lies not only a whole­some coun­try life­style, but also the op­por­tu­nity to se­cure hectares of truly beau­ti­ful land just five min­utes from the heart of Gor­don­vale and all that the town­ship of­fers.

The prop­erty sits well back from the road, and is per­fectly po­si­tioned for pos­si­ble de­vel­op­ment in the fu­ture (STCA).

Fully fenced and zoned Low Den­sity Res­i­den­tial; Coun­cil rates only $1800 per an­num.

The 1.2ha rear pad­dock can eas­ily be fenced for horses.

Charm­ing, p r i v a t e and de­li­ciously peace­ful – come on in for a visit and be pre­pared to fall in love!

It is truly a once-in-a-life­time op­por­tu­nity for buy­ers to con­tinue the dream.

River­stone House is lo­cated at 108 Gil­lies Range Rd, Gor­don­vale.
