Araucaria is one of the north coast's more stunning properties and it is now offered for sale. It is just 45 minutes from Coolangatta International Airport and the Gold Coast and just under 2 hours from Brisbane.
This rich and warm, but magnificent, property is 5 minutes from the beach and the eclectic township of Byron Bay and yet it sits majestically at the end of a quiet country lane in a private cul-de-sac. This home artfully blends essential elements of pristine Mediterranean living ..... stunning indoor/outdoor architecture nestled in a serene setting while proximate to all professional services, restaurants, theatres and, yes, great shopping.
Araucaria is a beautiful, north facing, contemporary Mediterranean style mansion, on 1 acre, that is arrived at through wrought iron gates and along the stunning driveway. The land is elevated and the property enjoys breathtaking vistas of the pasture lands below, across to the Byron Bay Lighthouse and sparkling Pacific Ocean beyond.
The residence is surrounded by superbly designed established gardens and grounds. The gardens have a wonderful orange and lemon orchard, herbs, water features and gardenia hedges. Pebbled paths meander through wisteria and grape vines that drape over al fresco dining and entertaining courtyards. The pool house with its spacious marble lined en suite overlooks an in-ground salt water swimming pool ..... great for guest accommodation.
Araucaria's Great Room, is a living space of rare proportion. It features 6 metre high ceilings, a hand carved limestone fireplace, French style chandelier and a grand sandstone staircase finished with a Javanese Teak balustrade salvaged from an old shipwreck. Sun fills the kitchen and living areas and bi-fold doors open up to the east and promote indoor/outdoor entertaining ..... and those spectacular views! There is a walk-around pantry, granite bench tops, an Ilve oven, double door refrigerator and built-in Rosewood chopping blocks.

The master suite has large walk-around wardrobes, a magnificent en suite finished in marble and an oval pedestal bath in front of French doors that open to a Juliette balcony and the mountain range to the north west.
The Great Room is adjacent to a fantastic sandstone brick lined 1000 bottle cellar, a spacious 2 car garage and a more-than-ample tool room. There is also a kitchenette here and 2 offices or a further 2 bedrooms.
