UPDATE: Australian fitness guru Lorna Jane has bought this beautiful property for $14 million, less than one month after it was first listed.
When the sun hits the mountain ridge this 23-hectare property comes alive with a rare beauty.
At 895 Coolamon Scenic Drive, Coorabell, remarkable craftsmanship combines with natural splendour to create a vision that pulls at the heartstrings.
Just 20 minutes from Byron Bay sits a 140-year-old estate that distorts time to bring forward a touch of childhood nostalgia like very few places do. Ancient fig-trees, English gardens, a kilometre of river, and a barn that needs to be seen to be believed combine to make you forget the outside world even exists.
Upon entering the main home you’ll notice it’s renovated and restored down to the last centimetre. Contrasting textures and colours bring light and life into the opulent home through a beautiful blend of old and new. 14-foot metal pressed ceilings, white cedar well and blackbutt timber floors are all made for each other.
There’s a wonderful feeling of relaxation. Comfortable, epicurean spaces spill out onto a large verandah where everything is open, light-filled and luxurious.
Almost all the furniture comes with the house – imagine a lazy afternoon spent around the stunning, double-sided fireplace.
Everything in this 345sqm residence is made of the highest quality, like the Italian tiles in the modern kitchen, or the wolf oven, complete with infrared Teppanyaki plates.
You’ll find the same attention to detail in the three bedrooms.
Interiors fuse with nature for a peaceful atmosphere, and on a rainy day open the bay window seat for a hidden surprise!
From the chandelier to the handmade Morrocan tiles, the bathrooms are absolutely stunning In the master’s four-room en suite you’ll find a room entirely dedicated to a shower, and push the side doors open to find an outdoor tub.
Walking up from the main house you’ll find the converted dairy bales – now a stylish guest retreat with its own bedroom, kitchen and living room. Warm, cozy and beautifully furnished, it’s perfect for friends and family to come and visit.
Behind the main homestead is one of the property’s most striking features; a three-level American-style barn. 12-metre high ceilings provide space for nearly anything you can imagine, and sculpted stairs provide easy access to the mezzanine level where a wood stove and balcony create a welcoming atmosphere.
If you’re looking for a picturesque pool the bar is high and getting higher. A flight of stone stairs leads from the house down to a stunning, European-style pool area, with views to match.
With breathtaking hinterland views from every corner of this expansive luxury homestead, it’s a wonderland you won’t soon want to leave.
