An architect designed sustainable renovation and additions to this home has resulted in a delightful surprise package. It's one of a kind positioned only a few minutes' walk from Arakwal National Park and Tallow Beach. Additions to the original brick house are clad in vintage iron bark and teak weather boards accompanied inside by hand crafted features like vanities, cupboards and feature timber walls using recycled hardwoods. Floor to ceiling louvres throughout, capture the cool summer breezes and keep out the cold winter winds.
The design capitalises on its north-facing living room with huge custom-made timber doors illuminating polished concrete floors and timber lined cathedral ceilings. The oversized third studio bedroom boasts exposed beams and hoop pine ceilings with its own well-appointed bathroom and laundry. It has its own private access, perfect for sharing this little oasis with family members or visitors who need a bit of their own space.
A 3kw solar system and solar hot water system generate great savings on the ever increasing cost of electricity.
The 2000 litre tank captures roof water plumbed to the cisterns in both bathrooms and laundry through a rain to mains control system.
There are two limestone-paved courtyards surrounded by established gardens giving great privacy to this bird filled haven. There are also two fabulous sheds in the back garden featuring vintage windows and doors. They provide ample storage space for all of your tools and gardening gear and the "surf shack" is an amazing little room in which you can escape to read, play music or store your surfboards. Add to this a swimming pool along the rear deck just outside the main bedroom and you're all set for a laid back, comfortable lifestyle walking distance from all Byron Bay has to offer.
