The minute you set foot on ‘Netherford’ you’ll instantly be captivated by this unique estate. Set on 140 (approx.) acres of rolling hills only 5 minutes from Mullumbimby CBD and 15 minutes to the famous Byron shire beaches, this is the epitome of idyllic Byron Bay hinterland living.
The north-facing, original 1800’s farmhouse has been luxuriously renovated to keep its old world charm and features high ceilings throughout, teak floors, a comfortable, free flowing open plan kitchen with dining and three large bedrooms. The Master Bedroom boasts its own dressing room and ensuite with magnificent views…in fact there are stunning views out of every single window in the house. The sunroom has an incredible view of sunrise over the majestic Mount Chincogan. In the evening, spectacular sunsets take place over the Koonyum range, and the verandah, patio or around the fire pit all make the perfect setting. The design and elevation of this property ensures free flowing breezes in summer and there’s a fireplace to heat the home with ease in winter. “The Bales” is a gorgeously renovated self-contained dairy cottage on the property and the views from this gorgeous cottage are to die for, with a patio that offers a secluded, private retreat that’s not visible from the main house.
Netherford is well suited for raising farm animals such as horses, alpacas or cattle, as the property is fenced and has a cattle grate at the entrance. A 6 x 6m shed with industrial shelving offers storage for all your farm equipment. Two creeks wind through the property and various dams provide water options, including a catchment dam with high elevation. This beautiful property also features abundant lemon trees, Moreton Bay figs and a eucalypt forest plantation. The grounds include tastefully landscaped cottage gardens, generous vegetable patches plus lychee, mango, avocado and macadamia trees.
