Smart real estate
NORMOUS pride is woven
into the fabric of this five-star
rated tourism property on
11.33 hectares at Mannum, for sale
through Hale Real Estate.
Completed in 2006, the property
features three free-standing retreat
accommodations and a main home-
stead situated on the Murray River
escarpment with spectacular
panoramic views of the Murray
River, her backwaters and the town-
ship of Mannum.
Riverview Rise Retreat has been
developed as a top-class destination
specifically for couples and is South
Australia's only 5-Star Bed and
Breakfast self catering accommoda-
tion rated by AAA Tourism.
The key design feature of the
retreats is the emphasis on their
absolute comfort and privacy, all fit-
ted out with plush, modern furnish-
ings that have been selected for style
and comfort. You will also find all
the modern trimmings and conve-
niences you would expect with 5-
Star accommodation, such as a two
person therapeutic spa, wide screen
plasma TV with surround sound the-
atre system, fully appointed kitchen
including the essential coffee
machine, and tailor made king size
bed with the latest memory foam
Access to the retreats is via a small
patio deck which leads into your
indoor - outdoor room. Comfortable
teak furniture, overhead fan, games
and a four burner barbecue set the
scene. From the outdoor room you
venture into the main studio via
heavy glass doors that have been
mirrored for privacy. All retreats
have spectacular river views with not
a soul in sight, in fact, you have total
privacy with your closest neighbour
200 metres away.
The property has a central enter-
tainment gallery/area large enough
to cater for at least 150 people under
a massive shade sail, a great location
for a future restaurant. Adjacent to
this area there is a large water garden
adorned with water sculptures by
the owner Michael Chorney. This is a
quaint little gathering area under a
shady grapevine canopy often hired
for private functions and garden
Under the grapevine canopy is the
entry to the massage therapy room.
A tranquil, candle-lit room specifi-
cally fitted out to accommodate cou-
ples with two therapists. It is com-
plemented by relaxing music,
refreshments fridge, coffee/tea mak-
ing facilities and the soothing sound
of a large waterfall in the back-
ground. This is a favourite spot for
guests to relax and experience a full
menu of pampering massage treat-
The main homestead's design has
been carefully considered. Full sur-
round verandahs ensure that the sun
never hits the wall, to help keep the
power bills down. The use of fire-
proof thermal and acoustic insula-
tion line all exterior/interior walls
and roof, making a very quiet house.
In addition to its open plan living,
the feel and style of the building,
with its cathedral height living area
ceiling is reminiscent of African-
built form that lets nature in. This
