A beautiful beachfront abode in Byron Bay has broken the town’s real estate record, selling for a princely sum around the $22 million mark. A picturesque town in northern New South Wales, while Byron Bay has long been a fashionable stomping ground for the rich and famous, 2020 has seen its popularity boom – thanks in part to the likes of the Hemsworth brothers setting down roots – as well as the impact Covid-19 has had on homeowners wanting to move out of major cities, to areas that enjoy an altogether slower pace of life.
Located on Marine Parade – one of Byron’s most affluent addresses, the sublime sanctuary generated a wealth of interest from international celebrities and was on the market for just five days before it was sold to an undisclosed buyer. A spacious and sumptuous abode that fronts onto Wategos Beach, this decadent dwelling has five bedrooms, a heated infinity pool, a media room, a yoga room, commercial laundry and a spacious wine cellar.
With a beautiful water feature at the entrance to the home, open plan living and unrivalled ocean views, it’s easy to see why these spectacular home broke Byron’s real estate record.
And while agent, Michael Coombs – of Sydney’s lower north shore-based agency LJ Hooker Avnu – was unable to reveal the name of the buyer, rumours are circling that it might be Hollywood heartthrob Zac Efron, who has been making headlines recently after finding love with a Byron Bay local.
While a once sleepy town for surfers, hippies and travellers alike, this record breaking sale will no doubt cement Byron Bay as one of Australia’s most popular property hot spots.
