This aptly named freestanding unit is named in honour of a remote sheep station one hundred and sixty kilometres from Longreach. It was the home of the pioneer McGovern family and amid the dust, heat and hard labour the homestead represented a haven and a place of rest for the family and their many employees. The two surviving members of the McGoverns live in Redland Bay and Hervey Bay and are both in their eighties.
Iluka's Newhaven is somewhat less isolated but remains a tranquil place to retreat from the rat race. In the heart of Iluka, this generous three bedroom townhouse has a completely private paved outdoor area and is small dog friendly. The upstairs balcony off the large main bedroom is a perfect space for a read, relax or glass of wine.
Newhaven is near the rainforest walk and even closer to the bowling club. The retail centre of Iluka is a short walk down the main street when you need to stock up. It is a short stroll to the Clarence River where you can meander along the beautiful walkway, fish, launch a boat or enjoy a meal and drink at the famous Sedges Reef Hotel overlooking the river.
On the first Sunday of the month, you can wander down to the local markets at the oval, a short walk away and pick up some home made goodies, craft and other treasures.
On the other hand, you may just want to enjoy Newhaven’s large airy space to catch up on reading, relaxing or pulling out some board games.
Newhaven is the perfect getaway for those weary of overdeveloped and commercialized beachfronts but still keen on the modern comforts.
Newhaven's features include:
large upstairs bathroom with separate shower and bath.
downstairs shower and toilet.
large garage with automatic door.
plenty of space for fishing gear and equipment.
second parking space (accessed by the rear laneway) suitable for car or boat.
large open plan living and dining area.
flat screen TV, DVD player, radio CD player with iPod dock.
reverse cycle air conditioner.
large kitchen with generous pantry.
paved and private outdoor area suitable for kids.
three bedrooms with large built in wardrobes.
spacious main bedroom opens onto a deck.
Everything awaits you for a relaxing holiday or few months away from the rat race.
