Sustainable Lifestyle Property with Residence and Cabins by the Lake where Permaculture Design Embraces Regenerative Farming
This exceptional once-in-a-lifetime lifestyle property promises peace and privacy in the most magical of settings. Spanning across 118 acres this property has been planned and designed to allow the new hilltop residence and cabins by the lake to integrate into the landscape by the creative plantings and gardens which provide shade, stunning vistas and biodiversity habitat. With a number of dwellings including the original farmhouse, artist studio, farm office and potting shed this allows diverse usage on the property.
The elevated main house / “Hill Top Residence” has been cleverly designed with a changing climate in mind and rarely needs heating or cooling. Large windows promote views and ventilation with louvered windows encouraging the cross breeze. The covered veranda seamlessly links to the inside creating a relaxed space perfect for entertaining and takes in sweeping views of the lush green farm and the picturesque lake below. Inside, the contemporary colour scheme and open plan living area feel almost gallery-like. The modern kitchen boasts stone benchtops, bespoke cabinetry, walk-in pantry, gas cooktop and breathtaking views of the surrounding hills.
The two stylish cabins have been built with an old-fashioned aesthetic combined with the modern appliances and features. They are set amongst charming frames of colour and foliage overlooking the timbered ridge and lake. Both have outdoor baths and share the outdoor covered alfresco area ideal for group bookings. These lovely cabins are approved as tourist accommodation and generate considerable income. The original 1950's two bedroom farmhouse has lovely garden, paddock and creek views. It has been sought after as rental accommodation which forms part of the substantial income stream of the property.
Designed by landscape architect and permaculture designer Vince Hunt, he has creatively planned and designed the gardens and plantings and built the lake which is the heart of the property. Sustainability is paramount which is reflected by rainwater harvesting in 8 tanks for over 330,000 litres, 10.6kw solar panels and 24 kw battery system, onsite wastewater management and over 30 wicking beds that provide abundant produce.
This secluded oasis has so much to offer and is just 10 minutes from the beach and 25 minutes to Byron Bay. An inspection is a must – you will never want to leave.
