Set in the hills of Bangalow, in a town famous for its 100-year-old buildings, boutique stores and gourmet treats, it’s hard to look past this contemporary home.
Now accepting expressions of interest, the three-bedroom estate is nestled in the midst of 100 acres of private paradise, and incredibly it’s only 15 minutes from Byron Bay!
The home is split into two pavilions, one resting higher than the other, cantilevered above the land. The floorplan is sculpted around the natural slope, and lying between is the long infinity-edge pool. Just imagine life playing out here, as the lifestyle grows around it.
3,500 macadamia grow here, as well as 300 finger limes, with the potential to develop it into a commercial enterprise. There’s a breadth of history to the place, with Bangalow’s decommissioned railway line cutting through, and an appearance from the Byron Creek.
The atmosphere is tranquil and relaxing, with plenty of greenery to greet you as you take those steps down to the main home. There’s a theme to the craftsmanship, with natural tones and clean lines enveloping the interior spaces.
The kitchen and dining area looks sublime, with stainless steel appliances, timber accents, and an entire wall of floor-to-ceiling cupboards. A marble waterfall bench takes prime position in the centre of the space, bouncing the light around and delineating the kitchen’s edges. Glass walls open up to a verandah that wraps around the entire home with the perfect mix of shade and sun.
In the central hallway, long windows encircle the house like a cocoon, exposing the inside to those breathtaking views. On a good day you can see all the way to the coast, but there’s plenty of beauty closer to home too.
The living room is a gallery where art takes the form of furniture, rugs, and a grand piano. If you can draw your eyes away from the outside, there’s a charcoal feature wall to draw your attention, providing the perfect backdrop for a feature fireplace. It’s quiet, and helps bring you into the present moment.
On the eastern edge of the building, the master suite is such a beautiful space you’ll always wake up in a good mood! More panels of glass present an unobstructed view of the countryside, the perfect setting to wake up to.
You’ll notice an organic feel to bathtime, thanks to timber accents in the en suite. The contemporary space comes with double sinks and an elegant rainfall shower, yet another way the outside is brought in.
If you’d rather your bedroom face the pool, head over to the second residence. Two king-sized luxury suites are housed in this building, ready to be rented out or set aside for guests. The building comes with a separate laundry, a home office and a kitchenette, and some fantastic poolside vibes.
If you’re looking for a new development opportunity, there is plenty to love here. There’s a dam and two creeks on the property, plus a 60,000-litre water tank, and easy access to town water and power. Two separate entrances mean it can be accessed directly from the highway, and you can build almost anything you want! It’s been floated as the site of a $400 million dollar village for over 55s, but really, the world is your oyster.
