485 Ridgewood Road,
SOLDNestled in a valley within Byron Bay's Hinterland you will discover 'The Cooks Cottage.'
The stylish and 'unpretentious' fully restored farmhouse was originally built in the late 1800's from locally sourced hardwood timbers and over time has seen additions and improvements.
Today 'The Cooks Cottage' stands proud and offers a level of character, style and quality which must be seen to be fully appreciated. High ceilings with ornate features and rare original timbers used in the walls and floors are as glorious today as they were over 100 years ago. The love, time and quality of the renovations put into this property will be enjoyed for many years to come…all the hard work has been done!
The 2 large bedrooms have built in wardrobes and there is an office space or 3rd single bedroom adjoined to the main home. The bathroom complements the style and era of the home and features a 2 person bath which overlooks the lush gardens via a double window.
This property has been painstakingly renovated with cooking and culinary delights top of mind. The large, traditional style kitchen leads out to a spacious wrap around covered veranda…perfect to relax, dine and unwind while taking in the magnificence of the surroundings. The vegetable and herb garden plus the chicken coup are within easy access for all your fresh cooking ingredients.
In addition to the main home you will find a quaint and stylish artist's studio OR fourth bedroom with a private covered deck. This is the spot to take in the endless panoramic views, fresh air and sounds of wildlife.
The block is an easy care and versatile 5 acres (approx..) and is surrounded by sub-tropical rainforest with beautiful indigenous hardwoods, fruit trees and native wildlife.
The cottage is already renowned throughout the photographic, home-style and food professional circles and is currently holiday let to select guests, it is truly something special and loved by many.
While completely private access to Byron Bay is a relaxing 30 minute drive. Gold Coast Airport is approx. 50 minutes and Ballina Byron Gateway Airport is a 45 minute drive. There is further potential to create a dual occupancy on this lot (STCA).
