AN ICONIC homestead and business in the Tweed is up for sale.

Brother's Bob McPherson, and wife Jenni, and John McPherson, and wife Cheryl, are selling the 100-year-old property House of Gabriel after two years in the business.

Both families are looking to retire after building up the Tumbulgum fashion boutique, art gallery, restaurant and cafe.

"Over the past two years we have really built the businesses up, running the fashion boutiques and art gallery, the restaurant and cafe, and we have regular and loyal clientele who visit on a weekly and sometimes daily basis," Bob McPherson said.

"We have also established the House of Gabriel as a popular wedding and function venue.

Mr McPherson said it was the House of Gabriel's history that made it such a unique property.

"There are very few historical and renowned homesteads remaining in operation between Brisbane and the Tweed shire and I think that is why it appeals to most visitors," he said.

"We are extremely sad to leave this place as it offers a unique lifestyle, however it is now time for us to sell as we want to move into retirement."

Just Real Estate investments director Tony Grbcic who is marketing the property said the House of Gabriel would attract people looking for a certain lifestyle.

"This property is one of kind and has become a destination in its own right, as visitors travel from Brisbane through to Byron Bay on a regular basis," Mr Grbcic said.

The 837sqm waterfront property is located on the popular Riverside Dr, Tumbulgum.

The House of Gabriel is a two-storey original weather board building comprising four-bedrooms plus a lounge upstairs and the commercial cafe kitchen and fashion store occupying the ground floor the art gallery in a separate building on the property.
