Waterfront living at its best
THIS east-facing four-bedroom home in a canal off the Tweed River was the ultimate base for Keith Edwards and his family over the past 23 years.
But the active retiree, still at the helm of the Rembay transport company, is swapping seaside living for acreage, and has placed his solid brick home up for auction.
Mr Edwards said the property’s low maintenance yard meant the owners had more time to enjoy the entertainers’ deck, which boasts panoramic water views.
There’s also a private sandy beach, heated pool, spa and boat pontoon.
“I’ve had a few parties, and we all seemed to enjoy it here,” Mr Edwards said.
“We’d jump in the river before we had a spa. Some people prefer the river, and some people like the pool, and this house has both all right.”
The 72-year-old businessman said the roomy residence, set on 863 sq m, was fitted with an office and proved an ideal base for family boating adventures.
“The great thing about living on the water is it’s a great way of keeping the young ones off the streets,” Mr Edwards said.
“Around here they’ve all got tinnies and spend their time fishing to stay out of trouble and behave well.
“And the grandchildren absolutely love the pool, especially now that it’s solar heated.”
The deal is sealed with a double garage, work shop, triple carport, suitable for a caravan.
It’s all an easy 10 minute stroll to the beautiful Kirra Beach and Coolangatta.
There is an additional option of acquiring the 40ft boat and air berth.
