For the last 25 years, Abbotsford has been a sought after ‘country' living area. The upper reaches of the Nahoon River run along its boundary and it is in this area where the river transitions from salt to fresh water. The suburb itself is nestled in a natural basin and there are spectacular views of the mountain from the riverside properties. The suburb has a distinct village atmosphere. The properties have easy access to the North East Expressway which transverses the city as well as the N2 highway which leads in and out of East London.
Owing to its beautiful setting, an Abbotsford property affords the bird watcher ample opportunity to feast their eyes on most forest and coastal bird species. It is common to see pairs of Fish Eagles flying over the upper reaches of the Nahoon River, or a group of white cormorants roosting in overhanging trees. The riverside properties, together with the leafy nature of the suburb with its attractive trees and large erven make this suburb a highly desirable real estate investment.
