An affordable cosy cottage only metres from the Clarence River on Goodwood Island, for only $85,000. (Note: Excludes land, which is leased at $65 per week)
Set on 1.504 hectare (3.7 acres), along with 9 other cottages in a quiet rural setting, just a short drive from nearby beaches at Woody Head and Iluka.
Originally constructed to provide temporary housing for mullet fishermen, the buildings are individually "non conforming existing uses" under the EP & A Act. Due to these circumstances, consent to operate is not required as long as there is no enlargement, expansion or intensification without the consent of Council.
With a covered timber verandah at the front that captures expansive river views and a great entertainment at the rear, which doubles as a carport if needed.
There is also a separate shed providing storage space, with room for a boat or car.
The quaint little cottage is compact in size and could be lived in permanently but is ideal for a weekender. The main living area and bedroom are open plan, offering a kitchen and dining area adjoining the bedroom with a 2 seater recliner lounge, a tv unit plus television.
There is also a separate laundry and bathroom, plus a small sunroom with a futon for overnight guests.
Also included with the cottage is an inventory of outdoor and indoor furniture, electrical appliances and white goods plus kitchenware.
Additional Costs: Each cottage owner pays 1/10th of all land and water rates plus an annual contribution for the septic maintenance.
Goodwood Island is only minutes by boat to both Yamba and Iluka and has its own public boat ramp just up the road. On the riverside of the property there is a shared jetty plus a place where you can winch up your tinny.
