Casa Campana Brings Mediterranean Chic To The Tweed Coast Hinterland

One would forgive you for thinking Casa Campana was transplanted from the Mediterranean Coast to the rolling green hills of the Tweed Coast hinterland.

Designed by Peppa Hart in collaboration with Three Birds Renovations, the 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 2-car garage residence brings a luxurious slice of Mediterranean style to Northern NSW through its arching design, whitewashed walls and breezy, open-plan layout.

Once through the aforementioned archways, the open plan living and dining area is the star. Boasting enormous scale, custom panelling overhead, and concrete hard finishes — including the kitchen workspaces — Casa Campana is effortlessly cool.

Complementing the custom concrete additions are the handmade balustrades, door handles, and joinery throughout while modern comforts such as a double-sided gas fireplace and a butler’s pantry.

Secluded by its location and sprawling 1.31-hectare plot, the European feel extends outside via oversized bi-fold doors to the smashed tiling underfoot (whitewashed, of course) and further use of concrete leading to the heated saltwater pool.

Beyond the pool sees a poolside cabana that inspires hosting, complete with a woodfired pizza oven and sink and two heated outdoor showers.

There’s also a kids and adults cubby area — one featuring a rooftop slide and servery the other a built-in daybed and wet bar.

Back inside, the upper level of the home hosts the master suite – complete with a large walk-in robe, built with custom joinery and brass handles and an opulent design, open ensuite complete with concrete benchtops.

The upper terrace wraps the master suite and accompanying studio space.

The remains of the accommodation is found downstairs, each with built-in robes alongside laundry and a separate media room.

Built with the purpose of never needing to leave, there’s a range of smart home fixtures including smart home lighting and an inbuilt sound system throughout – controlled from the butler’s pantry – alongside electric Luxaflex blackout blinds in multiple rooms.

While secluded in its orientation, the residence is in a coveted pocket of northern NSW, due to its proximity to Byron Bay, Cabarita beach and its array of cafes, restaurants and boutiques.

The listing is with Luke Savage of LS Properties (+61 477 122 559) with a price guide of $4 million. Lsproperties.com.au

Owning a Home in an LGBTQ-Friendly Area Comes With a Hefty Price Premium

The cost of owning a home in an LGBTQ-friendly area in the U.S. comes with a hefty price premium of almost 50%, according to a report Wednesday from Redfin.

In a metropolitan area with state laws protecting LGBTQ people from housing discrimination, a home buyer needs to earn an annual income of $150,364 to afford a median priced home. That’s 46.8% more than the $102,435 buyers need to earn to afford a home in places without such protections, the online property portal said.

For the purposes of their report, a metro is considered to have protections if the state it’s located in prohibits housing discrimination based on sexual orientation and/or gender identity, Redfin explained. In the case of metro areas which span multiple states, Redfin considered the metro to have protections if at least one of the states it’s located in prohibits such discrimination.

“LGBTQ+ Americans face disproportionately large barriers to homeownership,” said Redfin senior economist Elijah de la Campa in the report. “On top of paying a premium to live somewhere that feels safe, many LGBTQ+ house hunters are earning less than the typical U.S. worker, and face discrimination while shopping for homes despite laws that prohibit it.”

The locales where individuals identifying as LGBTQ make up the largest share of the adult population are also those where housing is the least affordable, the report found.

In San Francisco, where 6.7% of the adult population identifies as LGBTQ—the highest share of any of the 54 metropolitan areas Redfin analyzed—only 5.1% of listings last year were affordable based on the median local income, one of the lowest shares in the country.

In Portland, Oregon, which had the second highest share of LGBTQ adults at 6%, only 6.7% of homes for sale were affordable; in Austin, Texas, where 5.9% of the adult population identifies as LGBTQ, 2.9% of listings were affordable.

And in Seattle and Los Angeles, where LGBTQ adults make up 5.2% and 5.1% of the population, 4.8% and 1.9% of homes for sale were affordable, respectively.

All but one of those top LGBTQ metros—Austin—has state-level protections, the report said.
