With not a neighbor in sight, this off the grid Queenslander style home in the spectacular Byron Bay hinterland is the stuff tree change dreams are made of. Reminiscent of a country home with all modern conveniences and total self-sufficiency, the house is beautifully finished with hardwood floors and high ceilings, and features three spacious bedrooms, an abundance of storage and an open plan design. The spacious living areas flow seamlessly onto a large covered verandah with views over the lush countryside beyond, which includes the quaint and tranquil Skinners Creek (the southern boundary to the property). The bedrooms are spacious and breezy, with the main bedroom opening onto the verandah and its spectacular views and featuring a walk-in robe and ensuite. The large four bay shed is suitable to home cars, caravans, boats or a workshop. Seclude yourself in nature among the lush trees and wildlife. With nothing but the sounds of birds and the rustling of trees, this is the ultimate stress-free zone. The meandering Skinners Creek serves as the southern boundary of the property, offering an abundant water supply (and is home fish, ducks and platypus). If you are looking for passive income with almost no work to do, the property features a valuable registered Blackbutt plantation. Already assessed at a high value for select logging, this plantation will double in value on maturity in 10 to 12 years' time. There are cattle yards, positioned away from the home which can be accessed by a second property entrance. And there is also potential for farm stays, Airbnb or other income opportunities. While the home is just 30 minutes to bustling Byron Bay, and 20 minutes to both Ballina and Lismore, it offers the ultimate in privacy and seclusion in stunning rural surroundings.
