Set high on a hill with stunning rural views, this stunning hinterland home is the perfect place to enjoy all that Byron Shire has to offer in a serene, private setting, surrounded by nature.

Located 20 minutes drive from Byron Bay and just a minute from Federal Shop and the infamous Doma Cafe, this 77 acre property undergoing rainforest regeneration has 400 metres of Wilsons River front to explore, (kayaks available) whilst the local swimming hole is just across from our driveway entrance.

The space
Enjoy Byron Shire on your doorstep from this very private and serene eco-friendly hinterland home with pool, swing & slide for the kids, abundant herb & veggie garden, plus chooks! The house overlooks a lush valley to the Koonyum mountain range to the north. Architecturally designed, rammed earth home with 3 large bedrooms, main bedroom with ensuite and second bathroom with claw-foot bath.

IDEALLY I am looking for someone to rent 3-6 months. Rent will be negotiable dependent on length of stay. House can be furnished, partly furnished or completely vacant. Please contact me to discuss.

Plenty of outdoor, undercover deck space with gorgeous hinterland views. Wake to birdsong or get out and explore and maybe catch a glimpse of the local wildlife, (wallabies, pademelons, echidna's, platypus and lace monitors!)

A large, well appointed kitchen, (the owner is an ex-food writer), sits in the middle of an open plan lounge and dining area. These all open on to an enormous 18 metre long undercover deck that flows through to the pool area. Enormous lawn areas for kids to run around including its very own playground with swing and slide. At the entrance in the middle of the circular drive, a mini-ecosystem pond supports a diverse range of local frogs and fish.

The house is full of creature comforts and eclectic art. There is a super comfy lounge with fireplace and 65" HD TV. Huge selection of books. Sound system, Wifi, solar powered with battery backup and undercover parking for 2 cars.

There are 77 acres to explore! Very private residence at the end of a 400 metre, mostly sealed road, (no need for 4WD). The Wilsons River wraps around the property, and there are numerous bush tracks to explore the rainforest.

Hi there, I am a single dad of two teenage girls who lives and works on a property just inland from Byron Bay. I'm a writer and natural resource manager which is a fancy name for someone who loves nature and works to maintain and improve it where and when I can. Whenever we can we like to escape to the beach to surf, swim, fish and just hang out. Byron Bay is beautiful but our favourite haunt is a few minutes south at Broken Head - serene and surrounded by nature and for us, paradise. SeaSpray is our family beach house. We hope you like it.
