Located in one of the best locations in Byron Bay right in the centre of town, this dual occupancy property offers 12 bedrooms and six bathrooms within extensive infrastructure across two large houses, Starr Cottage and Skye Lodge, and a care-takers unit.
All of Byron’s major attractions are right at the doorstep, yet it feels a million miles away from it all, tucked away in quiet Shirley Lane. The houses have been carefully renovated with the utmost respect to their original era, the finishes and furnishings across the houses are beautifully appointed including high ceilings, tongue and groove VJ walls, double hung timber windows, ceiling roses and beautiful wide timber floor boards.
Starr Cottage, located at the front of the property, is stylishly renovated charming four bedroom, two bathroom home, with high ceilings and original, beautifully restored features. The private parents retreat upstairs features an en-suite, with a separate annexe off the bedroom that could be used as an extra bed or study. The kitchen is sparkling with granite benchtops and European appliances. The private chic swimming pool is surrounded by tropical gardens and sandstone.
Beautiful Skye Lodge is a gorgeous house located at the rear of the property, with direct access to the rear lane, additional parking, bike track, and backing onto Cumbebin Reserve. From the charming panelled walls to high ceilings, you will feel like you’re in the era from which the Queenslander house was built. Skye Lodge has seven bedrooms and three bathrooms in total, including a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, bigger than some Sydney apartments.
The typically Byron style balcony overlooks the private tree lined garden, large barbecue and outdoor entertaining area and a sparkling swimming pool, for alfresco dining Australian style. Downstairs there is also a recreational room which is used for many purposes, including group activities, conferences or yoga workshops. The care-takers unit is a private one-bedroom apartment below Skye Lodge, including bathroom, kitchen and courtyard.
