Escape to paradise and discover this gem of a property nestled in the rolling fertile hills of sought after Goonengerry-Montecollum, within minutes to Mullumbimby, Byron Bay and surrounds. Tucked away in a tranquil spot, and still the convenience of only 2 minute’s drive to the café amidst the spectacular gardens of Crystal Castle, this is a rare find.
Set amidst pockets of tropical gardens and rainforest, peace and tranquility is on offer with this 6.8 acre parcel of gently rolling land, where you can breathe in the fresh mountain air, savour the produce from the garden and simply feel the earth beneath your bare feet. Cradled between larger acreage, this delightful piece of the Byron Shire hinterland is situated along a shared driveway that allows privacy and quiet from the main road.
Featuring a charming, 1920’s circa weatherboard farmhouse with inground pebble crete pool, approved freestanding studio, double bay shed, citrus trees, cleared spaces offering building sites for a 2nd dwelling (STCA), plentiful water supply and a perfect blend of bird and wildlife.
Gorgeous hinterland views at the top of the property offer a sensational building block, with great separation and complete privacy from the existing home. Also ideal for a magical chill out zone for a yoga retreat/studio.
The main home is a fusion of yesteryear country charm and modern convenience in style and design, offering a blend of original natural elements with timber, slate, brick and exposed beams featuring throughout. Soaring ceilings, sash windows, hardwood floors and picture rails, maintain the character of the original era of the home. 3 bedrooms, main with ensuite and walk in robe, formal lounge, extra sunroom/office, soaring raked ceilings over the open plan kitchen and dining areas flow through to the immense light filled 2nd living room, with large windows to make you feel at one with the eye catching outdoors with its entertaining area and inground pool. A perfect sanctuary to relax with a coffee or sit back and watch the kids play.
There is also the private weatherboard artist’s studio/home office which has open plan high ceilings, washing up area and bathroom with own access driveway, and separate electricity and phone line. This is a very comfortable space with reverse cycle air conditioning and provides options to set up as guest accommodation or home office. Also offered here is an attached carport and deck looking onto beautiful Bangalow Palm rainforest.
For nature lovers, there are wallabies and echidnas living on the property and a huge diversity of birdlife and of course the occasional koala. Established trees with mandarin, lemon, mango and banana trees to name a few, grown from the rich volcanic fertile organic soil, provide delicious fruit in season with an abundance of water available. Adjacent farms are organic, including Rockwall Farm which sells delicious seasonal fruit & vegies just a short walk away."
