A unique opportunity now exists to acquire a beach house like no other – set in a private gated beachfront estate created to sustain and preserve the natural environment. Linnaeus Estate, set on 111 hectares (approx. 274 acres) between Byron Bay and Lennox Head, is a trust comprising just 33 shares covering a period of 150 years so that generations of families can maintain the vision of ecological sustainability into the future. With 1.5 kilometres of beachfront to the Byron Bay Marine Park, and surrounded by national parks and crown land, Linnaeus comprises wetlands, littoral rainforests, bushland and dunes. Beach houses and community facilities occupy only 1% of the land area and display an architectural purity and originality in harmony with the surrounding landscape. In addition to their individual dwellings, owners share in community facilities in and around the ‘Centre’. Included are a meeting or conference area, dining room & bar, commercial kitchen, outdoor terrace with fireplace, 25m. infinity-edge pool, gymnasium, tennis court and organic vegetable garden, all professionally maintained year-round. Linnaeus even has its own water treatment plant and water supply via recycling and spring-fed dams. The environmental master plan maintains and regenerates the area’s natural vegetation and the native landscaping around buildings.
Beach House 16 occupies a commanding beachfront position, close to all facilities but private behind a screen of greenery. It is one of the few homes with direct internal access from the carport. The two-storey, three bedroom house of 320sq.m. is a one-off contemporary design featuring 3 upstairs bedrooms and a large designer bathroom, living/dining area flowing out to an al fresco deck, media lounge and an expanded refurbished kitchen with quality stainless steel appliances and a butler’s pantry. Equipped with ceiling fans plus ducted and split cycle air conditioning, the structure incorporates recycled and renewable timbers.
