Historic riverfront Queenslander for sale in northern NSW hotspot

11 Chinderah Bay Drive, Chinderah, is a historic Queenslander.

A beautifully restored 100-year-old Queenslander on the Tweed River at Chinderah will go under the hammer this month.

Marketing agent Katrina Walsh, of Harcourts Coastal Prestige, said the historic property for sale at 11 Chinderah Bay Drive, Chinderah, had attracted inquiries from a number of high-profile local and interstate buyers eager to invest in the emerging northern NSW hotspot.

The four-bedroom traditional Queenslander on a lush 0.5ha block was one of the town’s first houses when it was built in the 1920s.

The 1920s home has been sympathetically restored with plenty of modern luxury.

While the block is zoned for mixed use, providing commercial potential, Ms Walsh said most inquiries had been from buyers drawn by the idyllic riverside lifestyle on offer.

“It is an absolutely stunning property which has been extremely well-received by the public,” Ms Walsh said.

“Some very well-known identities, both local and interstate, have inspected it to date, and most of the buyers are wanting that riverfront lifestyle where you are close to the beach and the Gold Coast but you also have that extra bit of space.”

The owners relocated from the Gold Coast when they purchased the block for $1.6m in 2017 and undertook extensive renovations, preserving the home’s period charm while presenting a fresh, coastal facade.

Its white exterior gleams against mature palms dotted among manicured lawns, and there’s a huge tropical swimming pool and cabana.

Open-plan living areas flow to a wide wrap-around veranda, while black cabinetry lends a contemporary feel to the stylish kitchen.

Mature palms and mango trees fringe fully irrigated lawns and landscaped gardens.

Casement windows, tongue and groove timber wall panels and hardwood floors all nod to yesteryear, while kid-friendly upgrades including a two-level treehouse and bike track make this an ideal family retreat.

The property has a boat ramp for direct river access, large boat shed with home office and storage space, a workshop and covered parking for four cars.

The owners plan to move to a larger acreage in pursuit of a rural lifestyle.

House prices in the area have been on the rise since 2020, with two sales cracking the $4m mark this year.

Another restored Queenslander at 46-64 Walsh St which was formerly the Kingscliff Seaside Guesthouse was recently snapped up for $4.1m following a marketing campaign by Nick Witheriff, of LJ Hooker.

The property will be auctioned on June 30.
