Expansive Luxury Homestead with Breathtaking Hinterland Views
Tucked away behind a discreet, secure entrance to ensure peace and privacy, this property is a triumph of craftsmanship, style and vision. The result is something truly exceptional.
This magical estate rests on 23ha of pristine land on a highly sought-after ridgeway, just 20 minutes to Byron Bay and 10 to Mullumbimby and Bangalow. It encompasses the flawless main house, stunning American-style macrocarpa barn, several out buildings, a European style formal pool, a 4.2 megalitre dam, and 1km of beautiful river frontage with a large swimming hole accessed by a trail at the bottom of the property.
Wrapping along the driveway, the road opens into 1000m2 of hand-laid Italian porphyry cobblestone, marking the grand entrance to the stunning homestead (circa 1880). Lovingly and painstakingly renovated, this home features 14ft pressed metal ceilings, cedar walls, blackbutt flooring and ornate fretwork. The well-considered position captures the sublime views across the rolling greens hills beyond. The open-plan living area hosts the stylish kitchen, finished with the finest appliances and black granite benchtops. The space connects seamlessly to the huge wraparound verandah and gorgeous double-sided fireplace; an entertainers' utopia.
The master suite is the epitome of luxury with a stunning 4-room ensuite including bathroom, separate shower/wet room, dressing room with large marble-topped island and separate toilet. The additional bedrooms and bathrooms display the same attention to detail with the highest quality fittings, finishes and tilework.
The homestead is complete with state-of-the-art integrated operating systems. The internet capabilities are extraordinary, boasting 50meg wireless NBN service across the property with fibre optic cable to the house, bales and barn.
The immaculate grounds and English gardens have been meticulously planned. There is a stunning European style pool and crafted terraced rock walls built mainly with stone sourced from the property.
The 3 level American-style macrocarpa barn is an awe-inspiring structure, at a staggering 8.8m high, it must be seen to be believed. Underneath are 4 large machinery bays which lead up via curved timber staircase to a mezzanine with wood stove and balcony overlooking the ancient fig trees. Converted dairy bales, an oversize garage and a potting shed complete this stunning estate.
With no stone left unturned, properties of this calibre are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
