An Unpolished Gem - 63 Waterfront Acres

If your looking for a "once in a lifetime property" with potential to be a magnificent estate, within an hour of Sydney, this is it.   

First owned by David Laughton of "Laughtondale" it is now being offered for sale for the first time in over 170 years. This historic property is an opportunity not to be missed. 

Spanning some 63 acres and boasting an impressive 1.4 kilometres of waterfront, this fertile property was once a vibrant working stone fruit farm. Post World War II the stone fruit orchards were replaced with citrus and this is what Laughtondale is still famous for today. The Hawkesbury River was a vital trade route providing essential produce for a rapidly developing Sydney. This property played a significant role in this trade.

Today the property is a blank canvas, an unpolished gem and an opportunity to create a magnificent Hawkesbury Riverfront Estate. With no adjoining neighbours you can be assured of privacy and tranquility, a place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.

The sheer size of the property with significant arable land lends itself to array of uses, horses, small scale hobby farming or simply just sit on the jetty, drop in a line and watch the river drift by.

Perfectly situated on the Sydney side of the river, the property can be accessed by water, sealed road and by helicopter.

The location of the property makes it highly appealing to those wishing to escape the high density lifestyle of Sydney yet still be in commutable distance of the CBD. The Lower Hawkesbury River location makes it a fast and picturesque boat trip down river to enjoy all that Pittwater and surrounding waterways have to offer. The historic Village of Wisemans Ferry is only 10 minutes away and only 60 minutes to Sydney's CBD
