Here is a rare opportunity to own a characterful home overlooking the majestic River Clyde while earning an income from Nelligen’s only cafe.
The three-bedroom house and separate commercial building at 1 rue du quai in Nelligen offer a range of lifestyle options in the picturesque township just 10 minutes from Batemans Bay.
Sophie Luton of Luton Properties says the property is ideal for anyone looking for a relaxed village lifestyle with the potential to earn rental income from the existing cafe.
She says that although the operators of River Cafe currently have a 10-year lease, they would consider selling the business.
“We are selling the house and the commercial premises on the same title,” said Sophie.

“It’s a great opportunity to buy a house and get great rental returns, or it’s also possible to buy the business and run the only cafe in town.”
Situated on a 1062 square meter block in the main street of Nelligen, the elevated house and cafe captures panoramic views of the river and surrounding historic cottages.
Just 10 minutes from the stunning beaches and amenities of Batemans Bay, the home would also make a unique vacation rental or Airbnb service for visitors who enjoy the outdoors and water sports such as wakeboarding, fishing or kayaking. The iconic pub is also just around the corner.
“The characterful home is sun-drenched and elevated at the back of the block with privacy and views across the boutique to the River Clyde,” Sophie said.
“With a stunning wooden cathedral ceiling spanning the open-plan living room, wooden floors and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the river, the house opens onto the covered entertaining terrace that wraps around the property.”
The center of the house, the kitchen, features granite worktops with a large stainless steel gas hob, oven and extractor.
The master bedroom, with a walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom, has sliding door access to the wraparound deck and water views. Two other generous bedrooms with built-in bathrobes, a main bathroom with separate toilet and a double garage with interior access complete the house.
“The grounds and gardens are neatly maintained and well planted with an orange tree, camellia bushes and a wisteria covered terrace,” Sophie said.
“Beneath the house is a fantastic large area for entertaining and having barbecues with family and friends.”
There is plenty of storage space for the boat, water toys and a work room to indulge in your hobbies.
Although the house is stunning, Sophie says the cafe’s rental income is proving to be an added attraction for buyers in Batemans Bay, Canberra and Sydney.
‘The property is attracting a lot of inquiries from investors, people wanting to live and run their own business, and as a holiday home,’ she said.
“It’s a real asset as Nelligen is the gateway to the south coast from Canberra and much of New South Wales.
“When you descend Clyde mountain and reach Nelligen and the river you know you are on the coast.”
She says Nelligen, with its heritage chalets and surrounded by state forest, is a quiet town steeped in history, but it is also thriving with the construction of the new bridge over the river and the bustling holiday park and pub nearby.
“It’s a chance to own a piece of Nelligen’s history and Nelligen’s future,” added Sophie.
Less than two hours from Canberra, the cafe is busy most days, with day trippers and motorcyclists coming for breakfast, lunch or a coffee by the river.
The café is the only local in Nelligen authorized to operate a business under its historical right of commerce.
“It’s a thriving business in a popular location, and it has the potential to go much further as well,” she said.
