For your romantic haze, family weekender or intimate retreat..
Country Castle, circa 1880s, is your own private sanctuary set high on an expansive ridge line with some of the most magical hinterland views and skies on offer in the Byron Shire. We are nestled amongst lush gardens, huge fig trees, macadamias, mangoes and wildlife in our echo-friendly rainwater retreat yet only minutes to funky Mullumbimby.
Country Castle is central to all the Festivals ( 6 minutes to Blues Festival site; 10 minutes to Splendour, 6 minutes to nearest beach at Brunswick Heads, 5 minutes to the famous "Farm" and 15 minutes to Byron etc).
Indulge the vast north facing terraces, endless skies, all day winter sun and coastline breezes. Enjoy this grand old lady's 16ft high ceilings, eclectic mid century and deco furniture, original hoop pine heritage floors and a very chilled feel. Two verandahs take in the vista, plenty of lounge spaces, a formal dining room, piano room and reading and writing nooks. There is a cosy TV wing with 60" USB TV, Netflix, DVD library, old fashioned board and lawn games for all your big kid needs and high speed NBN wifi. The little kids have their very own miniature queenslander house to play in complete with slide and sand pit and plenty of flat lawns to run and play. We also have a horse called Prince in our lower paddock and 3 stunning peacocks wandering around the garden. Our guests are welcome to feed the animals (instructions and food provided) or our housekeeper can discretely do so.
The home has 4 queen bedrooms; 3 upstairs and an enormous self-contained studio apartment downstairs. The apartment doubles as your yoga/dance studio with mirrors and barres in place and gorgeous views over the garden.
Although you will feel far away from it all, Mullumbimby's restaurants, 18 hole golf course and a tranquil olympic pool set amongst palm trees are only a couple of minutes drive away. Country Castle is 35 minutes to Gold Coast and Ballina airports with stunning National Park walks only 30 minutes away.
Entire Home and garden. The garage is locked for storage.
Guests are welcome to feed animals including the horse in the bottom paddock, just beware the long grass around the terraced areas.....
