SOLD AT AUCTION!
Pacific Vista Drive – Byron's best kept secret!
Built with a European feel from a blend of modern and reclaimed materials, this raw and soulful home is a seamless combination of French Industrial warehouse and European design. Large rooms with high ceilings, exposed hardwood timber beams and an extensive list of reclaimed features all blend together with limewashed steel trowelled walls and polished concrete to create this inspiring home.
100 year old hoop pine floorboards, 9 sets of matching French doors salvaged from an old hotel in Rockhampton, antique sash windows, 100 year old restored French and Spanish tiles, 2 original claw foot baths, matching doors from the original Sydney Queen Victoria Building; these are just some of the irreplaceable items that have been sourced for this one of a kind home.
Enter through the antique European front door and as you walk down the hallway and the view across Byron to the hinterland is perfectly framed. This hallway leads to two large bedrooms, a stunning bathroom with exposed copper pipes, a front courtyard complete with pizza oven and herb garden plus a covered deck with louvres for privacy. Continue down the hallway to the one of a kind open plan kitchen and living area which opens to the rear balcony and view to the hinterland and Mt Warning.
Head upstairs to the master bedroom, an incredibly spacious loft like haven complete with ensuite with clawfoot tub and stone basin. There are 4 skylight windows that all open, to let the sea breeze through (the skylight above the bed is automated and closes by itself if it rains). This level also contains a large office (6th bedroom) and ample storage. The vintage recycled timber ceiling has to be seen in person to be appreciated.
The lower level with its polished concrete floor and exposed suspended slab ceiling has the feel of a Greek Island villa, especially as it opens out to the inviting saltwater pool and level backyard. There is separate external access, two large bedrooms, living/games room, and the third gorgeous bathroom, plus an internal laundry. All making this level the perfect retreat for teenagers or potentially separate accommodation (STCA).
As featured in the Design Files blog, this is a truly unique property that must be viewed to be properly appreciated.
