Authenticity. Tranquility. Privacy.
A truly Magnificent established 50 acre farm in the Byron Bay Hinterland (Byron Shire). A special place for your family to be together without all the city distractions; a place to share time with other families; or a time for friends to enjoy company together in the beautiful Northern Rivers. There is no reason to leave if you don't want to. Relax on the dam pontoon during the day and sit around the sandstone fire pit by night.
However if you want to explore the region, the farm is less than 10 mins to several beaches; 8 mins to major shopping centre; 20 mins to Byron Bay; 12mins to Brunswick Heads; 25mins to Bangalow; and 35 mins from Coolangatta Airport. The farm is straight down the M1 with easy access 5 mins from the Motorway.
The VALE is a perfect location to get away from all the stress and bustle of City life and enjoy the tranquility and peace of the rural lifestyle; though close enough to shops, many wonderful restaurants and the varied cultural aspects of the Byron Shire. This property has been designed with a French Provincial influence in a rural Australian setting. The gardens are mostly Australian natives attracting a wonderful selection of local birds. Kookaburras will most likely wake you in the morning with the sound of many bird varieties during the day; with the addition of gentle sounds from chickens, turkeys and cattle. Laze around the magnificent natural dam, rest on the pontoon, lounge next to the water.
For your comfort, all four bedrooms and living spaces are fully air-conditioned (and heated) with individual settings for personal needs.

One can open the sliding door of the bath area offering a magnificent view over the paddocks through to the valley. The Cherub Room and the Turquoise room share the third bathroom. The linen and towels are by Sheridan and of the highest quality. This is our family home and therefore has all the benefits of a loving home and not just a rental property.

In the garden there is a marble table with 6 stools and an exquisite white marble horse fountain offering the gentle sound of running water. There is another large outdoor table by the wood fired pizza oven and Kamado BBQ. The Western verandah also offers another private area of seating and dining.

One never has to leave the property with the choice of cooking facilities - all of an extremely high standard.
Running Creek & Dam:
There is a large spring fed dam with a beautiful natural tropical backdrop. A hardwood pontoon allows easy access to the water with a selection of blow up lounges and water toys to relax and feel the gentle breeze. Next to the dam are sun lounges to soak up the magnificent weather. There is absolute privacy, no one can see you lounging or swimming. The property also includes a beautiful full-year running creek with several swimming holes, all with a stone base which is perfect for lazing around on a hot summers day. The creek is a few minutes walk from the farm house. Children can be supervised from the luxury of some large native trees overhanging the water. We usually wear a pair of old joggers when swimming as the creek is home to various native fish and other local animals. It is common to see perch, some platypus if you are very quiet, even an echidna or two as you walk through the paddocks.
The laundry has a washing machine and dryer of the latest Miele products (WKG130 + TKB450) - with TwinDOS and capsule dispensing (only uses Miele detergent provided).
Grocery Delivery & Vegetable Garden:
Coles online can deliver your groceries to the door, so plan ahead and your order can arrive at the farm as you do. We also have a vegetable garden suppling some fresh fruit and vegetables including some fresh eggs from our own chickens. There is also an extensive herb garden available for your use.
Your family pet is welcome provided they do not interfere with the livestock or cause any problems. There is a dog pen for security at night and the house area is fully fenced with both paddock fencing and an overlay of dog fencing. Pets are permitted in the home, though not allowed on the furniture. A quality tick and flea medication is absolutely required to ensure their health and prevent flea or parasite problems on the property.
