Nearly 30 Years ago this private, elevated 10 acre property was purchased by the current owners and a vision created – the reality is reluctantly presented to the market today.
The location is dress circle, just a few minutes from Bangalow and Byron Bay in a private, pristine position.
The home, an exemplary inspiration in design, built by Rory O'Halloran is constructed in Australian hardwoods on a north facing, elevated hillside surrounded by rolling lawns and landscaped gardens.
The elegant homestead offers three bedrooms, the master with large ensuite and walk in robes. The open plan living area is spacious light and bright with high ceilings and polished blackbutt floors throughout, the large study is appointed with handcrafted silky oak cabinetry and the huge kitchen is ideal for family and friends entertaining. Features include slow combustion stove, red cedar windows and doors, glass louvres and wide encircling verandahs accessed by doors from almost every room. The home looks out, Binna Burra Lodge style, over lovingly regenerated rainforest and to the tree lined ridge beyond.
A well designed studio stands discreetly adjacent to the home with own bitumen driveway and carport, it is almost new with a stylish kitchen and expansive living area, own laundry and bathroom. It is surrounded by private tropical gardens and will prove ideal for extended family or holiday guests.
The property is easily maintained and well presented, roughly two thirds of the land is regenerated rainforest with a wonderful creek walkway providing safe habitat for a plethora of bird and wildlife (view video). A large machinery shed equipped with power and water provides ample storage and workshop space. Water will not be an issue with an extensive system of tanks, pumps and underground pipes to ensure water for the house, studio and vegetable gardens.
Every aspect of the planning and development of this property has been well executed, even to the extent of the installation of a 900m underground dog fence around the home and gardens, together with the planting of fruit trees and the major infrastructure of bitumen driveways, rock retaining walls and well-designed drainage.
Perfect Harmony, Quality and Locality.
