LA RIVERAINE  Hawkesbury River





The original 50’s design of this charming riverside cottage was carefully preserved when totally refurbished in 2018.    All the charm and elegance of this era has been brought back to life, and a heated plunge/spa added to the tropical terrace garden.  French doors opening on to terraces make the most of the beautiful river views.

Fresh, luminous, airy and inviting, La Riveraine is an intimate retreat just for two in a stunning very peaceful location.

A romantic bedroom, a truly indulgent bathroom with deep stone bath, and a stylish chefs kitchen add understated luxury laced with a little nostalgia to this tranquil retreat. Wide steel frame windows are dressed with plantation shutters throughout. The living area opens onto a generous, covered verandah perfumed with Gardenia and Jasmine, and shaded in summer by a flowering Jacaranda.  The kitchen gives on to a cool stone covered court yard .

With beautiful views over the river and boat shed below, La Riveraine gives being ‘away from it all’ a whole new meaning.

 The sunken plunge pool (heated in cooler months) is set in a tropical terrace garden.   A stone Buddha statue, perfumed frangipanis, and potted citrus trees surround the pool. This is a place to take refuge from the summer heat. or swim at midnight watching the moonlight settle on the river.

 For Al Fresco dining there is a choice of three terraces to suit all weather.

During the winter weeks a log burning combustion fire adds to the ambience.

 The original boat shed sits right over the river just below the house.  Here, an afternoon siesta in the hammock or a nap on the day bed will put you on ‘river time’ in a moment. ....Or, from a big comfortable chair simply watch the world pass by, read, drop a line or enjoy a glass of wine while the sun sets over the Hawkesbury.

Elisa Fiorini recommends La Riveraine Hawkesbury. 28 September 2018 · This is an amazing river house, renovated to perfection, when you are there you totally relax and get away from the busy everyday life because you are surrounded by nature. You can go for beautiful bush walks and explore the area or if you want to chill out you can sit in the boat house and look at the sunset on the Hawkesbury river. Highly raccomended!!
