SOLD - Bangalow Road
Town: Byron Shire
Asking Price: $2.2 million
Gloriously restored century-old manor house on its original site in the hills between Byron and Bangalow. Everything is on a grand scale: four double bedrooms open onto wide decks to catch the rural views and breezes.
Open the doors between the huge lounge and formal dining room and you have enough room for ballroom dancing.
There is also an afternoon tea room, vast hallway, his-and-hers bathrooms and a modern European kitchen.
Doors, architraves and windows are all in original cedar, and there are 14ft-high pressed metal ceilings, french doors all round, open fireplaces, wrap-round verandahs and balconies, fan lights and a grand front door.
An upstairs has been added, capable of use as a separate apartment.
New plumbing and wiring were installed during renovations 10 years ago, and there is central gas heating, an indoor barbecue and pantry.
The 10-acre property contains six garages, a workshop, two separate rented cabins and a large dam.
All new fencing, underground irrigation and a small greenhouse make the living easy.
A gazebo and solar heated fresh-water pool provide the final touches.
