A stand alone, off the grid property! This very special 'future planned' home is designed for a sustainable future, energy efficient, low maintenance, and completely energy independent, a no compromise environmentally friendly design that includes all the nicer things in life. Situated on a north-east facing 4193m2 (1acre) elevated plateau overlooking Byron Bay and its stunning coastline.
The concept of this home came from a few values as guiding principles: To be solar passive, to use non-toxic (no VOC) materials, to express local vernacular and to champion sustainable design. The end result is this exquisite eco home sitting unobtrusively on the ridgeline. Meticulous planning has preceded the design, resulting in the highest level eco home and inspiring architecture, whilst providing a superb space that makes living easy.
The home is planned over 3 spacious wings comprising 5 bedrooms plus a separate guest room/work studio, 2.5 baths, 3 living rooms, dining room, wet room, laundry, wine cellar, several store rooms + a pool. A superb kitchen featuring locally milled Camphor laurel and bespoke S/S kitchen sinks and bench. A gas cooktop plus a ceramic electric cooktop, oven and statement "Schweigen" range-hood. A kitchen of this calibre would not be complete without the pantry and integrated cool room.
Architectural features throughout including soaring clerestory ceiling in the main wing, a feature glass illuminated stairwell and each room is positioned to capture breathtaking views.
Foundations are in place for the council approved completely separate studio. Small rural blocks are scarce in this area, this property has all of the advantages of a large rural lot without the maintenance. Situated within a few minutes' drive to Byron Bay and Bangalow yet surrounded by rolling green hills.
