Located in the highly sought after Myocum Valley, 15 minutes from Byron Bay, a short 5-minute drive to the beaches of Brunswick Heads and 5 minutes to Australia's biggest little town, Mullumbimby.
This beautifully built home is surrounded by a private, subtropical garden oasis.
The architect designed, master-built two storey home is constructed from a core filled block and render lower level, and a single species black butt timber clad second storey. A mixture of reclaimed hardwood has been used internally to combine to make this a very solid and beautiful home.
This home sits high with access from a full tar-sealed private drive.With five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a study this house offers lots of private space. Bedrooms four and five are cleverly designed to maximize privacy as an ideal guest wing that includes its own kitchenette. All the bedroom areas have an entrance to the private gardens.
The large master bedroom has a walk-in dressing room that flows through to the en-suite bathroom with bath, double showerhead and direct access to the pool.
Thoughtful and generous family living is the central theme and it is evident in harmonious layout; the large kitchen, state of the art appliances, walk-in pantry and the dining area that unfolds into a substantial undercover, north- facing patio. This home provides a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor living.
Features include 4.5-meter (15ft) cathedral ceilings on the upper level and subtle modern touches such as reverse cycle air conditioning, under-floor heating in the bathroom, sunken lounge with open fire and TV pit, solar hot water and master ensuite with double showerheads.
Outdoors, a privately landscaped sub-tropical, drought-resistant garden with a 16.2-meter saltwater pool that is run by the 10 kW solar panels (which also provide feed in tariff income).
Paths weave through the garden to the orchard where lemon, orange, grapefruit, mandarin paw paw and custard apple trees are established. Three bed compost area and vegetable garden beds also form part of this idyllic edible garden.
There is an ample water supply with the house being serviced by two concrete rainwater tanks (76 thousand litres) as well as a back-up third tank full of bore water servicing the garden.
Two gardens shed one with power and water, plus a pump shed, two pumps, one for the main house, and the other pump for the bore water when needed.
Both the Cape Byron Rudolf Steiner School and Mullumbimby's Shearwater Steiner School are located less than 15 minutes away, and offer primary and high school education for those seeking an alternative education system. There are also a number of public and catholic primary and high schools in close proximity.
The property is a rural, highly functioning land-sharing community comprising 25 shares on 400 acres. It is the largest privately owned title in the Byron Shire. Every titleholder has one hectare (2.47 acres) each under a agreement and the remaining acreage is held as community land. It is classified as a Multiple Occupancy with a Company structure and share issuance.
The property has a very healthy income stream from rental cabins and land agistment, as well as having a substantial Sinking Fund for the maintenance of the commonly owned infrastructure.
If you envisage living in a very private, safe and established natural environment, then this is a must see.
