A Retreat to get away from the busy life:
A truly Magnificent established 50 acre farm in the Byron Shire, 10 mins from the ocean. A special place for your family to be together without all the city distractions; a place to share time with other families; or for good friends to enjoy company together in the beautiful Northern Rivers. There is no reason to leave if you don't want to. Relax on the dam pontoon during the day, or the 6 person luxury spa under the wisteria pavilion, and sit around the sandstone fire pit by night.
However if you want to explore the region, the farm is less than 10 mins to several beaches; 8 mins to major shopping centre; 20 mins to Byron Bay; 12mins to Brunswick Heads; 25mins to Bangalow; and 35 mins from Coolangatta Airport. The farm is straight down the M1 with easy access 5 mins from the Motorway.
The VALE is a perfect location to get away from all the stress and bustle of City life and enjoy the tranquility and peace of the rural lifestyle; though close enough to shops, many wonderful restaurants and the varied cultural aspects of the Byron Shire. This property has been designed with a French Provincial influence in a rural Australian setting. The gardens are mostly Australian natives attracting a wonderful selection of local birds. Kookaburras will most likely wake you in the morning with the sound of many bird varieties during the day; with the added gentle sounds from chickens, turkeys and cattle. Enjoy the heated hot tub, or laze around the magnificent natural dam resting on the pontoon.
For your comfort, all four bedrooms and living spaces are fully air-conditioned (and heated) with individual settings for personal needs. The farm house sleeps a maximum of 8 adults with two extra beds available for children making 10 in total.
3 x Large King Ensemble Beds + 1 x Queen Ensemble Bed.
One King ensemble can be removed for 2 x single beds if more appropriate for your family needs. There is plenty of space in two of the bedrooms for a port-o-cot or rollaway.
The main French Room is grand with a private ensuite and walk-in. The Oriental Room has a private verandah overlooking the setting sun, also with an outdoor ensuite. One can open the sliding door of the bath area offering a magnificent view over the paddocks through to the valley. The Cherub Room and the Turquoise room share the third bathroom. The linen and towels are by Sheridan and of the highest quality. This is our family home and therefore has all the benefits of a loving home and not just a rental property.
There is an extensive video library with the very latest LED LCD Smart 55inch TV with Soundbar. Just walk in the door, connect using bluetooth and you have access to your music, movies and TV shows.
There is a glider swing for the romantics, cricket and badminton sets for the athletes, boules for the fun loving; and board games galore. We have Bond 007 Trivial Pursuit, jigsaw puzzles for all ages, cards, UNO and more. There are 2 chess boards and a board game set including checkers, backgammon, snakes & ladders and more. There is no reason to leave the farm.
For the adults, we have a roulette table with blackjack and craps.
There are many different Living Areas. Firstly, there is the large lounge suite seating 8 people comfortably. Outside on the front verandah there is a BBQ with an outdoor table and lounge setting. In the garden there is a marble table with 6 stools and an exquisite white marble horse fountain offering the gentle sound of running water. There is another large outdoor table by the wood fired pizza oven. The Western verandah also offers another private area of seating with a newly installed 6 person spa under the wisteria pavilion. Around the fire pit there is further seating. This property provides many different spaces for privacy or social gatherings.
The kitchen has a Miele dish washer and a country Euromaid 5 burner gas oven with 3 separate ovens. For those rainy days, there is a gas BBQ outside the kitchen on the verandah. There is also a fire pit for simple BBQ cooking and of course the wood fired pizza oven. One never has to leave the property with the choice of cooking facilities - all of an extremely high standard.
Running Creek & Dam:
There is a large spring fed dam with a beautiful natural tropical backdrop. A hardwood pontoon allows easy access to the water, though seasonal depending on recent rain. Please check with the caretaker before jumping in. There is absolute privacy, no one can see you lounging or swimming. The property also includes a beautiful seasonal running creek with several swimming holes, all with a stone base which is perfect for lazing around on a hot summers day. The creek is a few minutes walk from the farm house. We usually wear a pair of old joggers when swimming as the creek is home to various native fish and other local animals. It is common to see perch, some platypus if you are very quiet, even an echidna or two as you walk through the paddocks. These days, the dam and creeks are dependent on the recent rainfall.
The laundry has a washing machine and dryer of the latest Miele products (WKG130 + TKB450) with detergent provided.
Grocery Delivery & Vegetable Garden:
Coles online can deliver your groceries to the door, so plan ahead and your order can arrive at the farm as you do. For guests staying more than a week we offer to pack away your groceries in the cupboards and fridge if your delivery is just prior to your arrival. We also have an organic vegetable garden suppling some fresh fruit and vegetables in season including some fresh eggs from our own chickens. There is also an extensive herb garden available for your use.
