Exquisite 6 Bedroom Residence, Stables & Roastery with a "Positive Outlook" over Byron Bay

The palatial residence in the estate of Hightrees is arrived at via the Palonia lined, 500 metre driveway, past 10,000 coffee trees, the immaculate horse stables and coffee roasting and tasking rooms. Alight in the brick paved portico and walk up the wide, welcoming stairway, and through double sliding doors enter the spacious, formal tiled reception “room”.

The views from this magnificent property are nothing short of sensational; to the coast and ocean in the east and the mountains in the west. The South Ballina beaches are an easy 15 minute drive, with Byron Bay being a comfortable 40 minutes away. In the clear evenings in this part of the world, the lights of Evans Head can be seen in the distance.

From the main entrance turn right into an industrial sized kitchen, 2 sitting/lounge rooms (one with a huge open fire), and separate guest accommodation and bathroom. Straight ahead is a large music room, a bar and lounge and a beautifully positioned indoor swimming pool with a glass atrium to let in the light. This leads to an entertaining and barbecue area and gardens. Turn left and there is the parents master bedroom with double spa bath and glassed indoor garden, shower and toilet. Pretty amazing! After this come 4 more bedrooms, a large family bathroom, laundry and office. The corridors are wide and lead through arches to the central swimming pool and entertaining spaces, the kitchen with its breakfast bar and “prep” island is “Baumatic”, with 2 ovens and a gas and electric stove top and the cupboards and pantry are more than enough for any gourmet cook. Think stainless steel, metal-to-wet cement tones and milk glass …..

Features are ceiling fans throughout, “play” areas galore, plenty of sunlight, air conditioned master bedroom and spa bathroom, built-in and walk-in wardrobes in all bedrooms, very private and self-contained guest accommodation and lastly, but by no means least, there is a huge open plan teenagers “hangout” overlooking the ground floor of the residence.
There are 4 rainwater tanks (2 underground) with the above ground tanks being covered in flowering climbers, one servicing the coffee tasting rooms and 3 phase machinery shed and the other the horse stables. The 8 cement floor horse stables have a separate water supply, 2 tack rooms and mezzanine for hay storage. There are 4 fenced paddocks, 8 day yards and a round yard. Adding more value is a 40 Megalitre irrigation licence. The school bus service at the front gate and A1 agricultural soil grading together with garbage collection.

There is room for a further 10,000 coffee trees on this delightfully aspected 30 acre property at Dalwood, just out of Alstonville. Hightrees is the only commercially BFA certified organic coffee grown in Australia. There are also custard apples, mulberries, avocadoes, citrus trees, camellias, jacarandas, Mexican orange blossom, gardenias and many more beautifully scented shrubs and trees.

Experience the Ultimate in Each of the Four Seasons ….. and with the rich volcanic soil, there is nothing that will not flourish in this environment.
