Situated on 3/4 of an acre on a leafy street in the heart of Byron Bay, just 7 minutes walk from Tallow’s Beach and 10 minutes walk to the main street of Byron Bay, this historic character-filled home truly is a special piece of real estate.
Killarney is a 109 year old home which sits in the centre of a palm filled garden offering a great deal of privacy. The current owners have undertaken an enormous and truly fabulous renovation of the home, maintaining the character of the old home whilst adding a wonderfully eclectic personality to this amazing property which will feature in Vogue Living’s December issue.
A large veranda leads to the front door and a wonderful light-filled entry hall. There are 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms (4 en-suite) over two levels that have been beautifully appointed. The fifth bedroom, which is currently used as a playroom on the ground floor, also doubles as a powder room. There is a formal lounge room with an open fireplace that provides plenty of warmth in the winter months and a modern kitchen which has the original fireplace where an Aga once sat. The kitchen with its informal dining area overlooks the entertaining deck, gardens and fenced pool area. There is a large cabana by the pool with ample seating and an undercover BBQ area. The pool is saltwater, fully tiled and a great feature of the property. The property also benefits from an external study and storage room beside the carport.
Killarney is zoned for medium density development and has an expired DA for a guest cottage at the back of the garden. The development potential for this property is exceptional and there is plenty of scope for subdivision or multiple housing; it also has DA approval as a Bed & Breakfast establishment. This is a particularly quiet spot with the longest boundary adjoining a public reserve and the only other adjoining neighbour being the retirement village of Cape Byron Estate.
Pressed metal detailing; wooden floors made from local timbers; stylish rooms; and extensively landscaped gardens finish this wonderful property known as Killarney. It is on the market with the owners inviting Expressions of Interest with a price guide of $3.5 million.
We highly recommend an inspection of this unique Byron Bay ‘treasure’.
