A grand yet warm and welcoming home effortlessly combines classic and contemporary elements, creating a charming fusion of past and present in Mullumbimby. This striking historic Queenslander with bullnose verandahs on three sides, iron lacework and established gardens is an enchanting home with an abundance of space, both indoors and out. Features such as high ceilings, leadlight windows and French doors throughout, add to the casual opulence of the home.
Originally built in 1905, it boasts four bedrooms and three bathrooms, plus a studio, and has been reclaimed and restored to become a magnificent example of architecturally forging the old with the new. Owned by renowned jewellery designer, Victoria Spring, this graceful property is not lacking in versatility. “I have loved living in this home,” says Spring. “As beautiful as it is, it’s been a very easy home to live in with my family. It just works. The large living room has been the heart of our home, and the place of so many celebrations. And I have spent countless long afternoons relaxing on the verandah with friends. I think I will miss the garden the most – that has always been a place of inspiration for me.”
The established garden features private areas and secret spaces. It also includes whimsical touches and, in many places, seems to embrace the house with perfumed vines and soft-leafed greenery. On a sizeable 1640 square metre double block, with no direct neighbours, it also offers a beautiful saltwater pool, perfect for those warm days, or every day, as well as entertaining. Paved courtyards, lush lawns, and secure fencing boast of the property’s ample outdoor space. Parking for three cars, rear lane access and reverse cycle air conditioning are just a few of the other features that make this home so appealing. This is truly a one-off property of distinctive style and charm that will be highly sought after.
