'Hoopla' - Stylish architecturally-designed house on sprawling estate an easy bike-ride to Byron town centre
Tucked away down a country lane only moments from renowned beaches, is the stunning and utterly private 'Hoopla' estate. The architecturally designed home is set on 7.8 acres of sub-tropical and native gardens, with the combination of being secluded, yet a mere 3km from the vibrant hub of Byron Bay.
The main home has high-pitched timber-lined ceilings, hardwood floorboards & a double-sided fireplace. No expense has been spared with top quality appliances, fittings & craftsmanship throughout. Banks of windows and skylights allow natural light to flood the open-plan layout. The well-appointed kitchen is an entertainer's delight, while separate laundry, office space & ample storage make it a functional home to suit any family.
Bi-fold doors open to the wide covered, timber, wraparound deck. This leads you outside to enjoy quintessential Australian living, with the 13.5m solar-ionised pool, its pavilion and ensuite. The surrounding grounds capture the sunlight, making this the perfect poolside destination. A north-facing paved patio allows for yet another alfresco dining area, adjoining a lily pond and fountains.
The main bedroom has private access to the deck, a walk-in robe and ensuite with floor to ceiling louvres, double sinks, bathtub and heated towel rails. Upstairs are two more spacious bedrooms, each with an ensuite & built-in robe and private access to a wraparound veranda overlooking the grounds.
The house is fully off-grid and solar-sufficient. The double carport has ample storage, a separate WC & adjoins a battery storage utility-room. Other outbuildings include wood & generator sheds, garden tool shed, raised vegetable gardens and a large lockable storage shed.
The magnificent easy-maintenance gardens are designed by renowned landscaper Tim Hays and feature natural stone staircases and multiple walks through the private rainforest & Jurassic hoop-pines. Approximately two thirds of Hoopla is zoned Wildlife Habitat and Corridor which requires no maintenance and is a haven with occasional wallabies, koalas and stunning birdlife.
Privately positioned away from the main dwelling is the self-contained studio. Perfectly suitable as guest accommodation, yoga retreat, artist's studio or potential rental income (STCA).
Byron Lifestyle properties of this calibre and in this location make this a rare offering.
