'Riverwood' just pristine!
An absolutely outstanding property combining river frontage, lush rich river flats, elevated mountains, native bush, and a small mature pine plantation.
From the banks of the heritage listed Aire River to the very accessible top of the ridge. With stunning views over the beautiful Aire Valley, its lakes and river system, this property has it all.
The free-hold is approximately 263 acres with an extra 23 acres of government leased river frontage, in total around 115 hectares.
A formed gravel all weather road takes you to the top of the ridge affording magnificent views of this beautiful valley, over the sand hills out to Bass Strait.
The property is about 70% bush and 30% pasture and river flats, bordered on the east & north east by the Aire River, the north & north west by the Otway National Park and on the south by the Great Ocean Road.
At the north end there is a substantial seasonal waterfall falling from the ridge near where the Aire River turns to rapids.
While there will be limitations in obtaining a planning permit to build a dwelling (stca) it could be possible to a patient and resourceful buyer. Most of the green pastures are subject to inundation and most of the hills are treed and vegetated which, in the zoning, would make it challenging. Zoned 'Rural Conservation'
