While Byron Bay has carved a name for itself as the sunny celebrity hideaway that homes the Hemsworths amongst other Hollywood A-listers, it isn’t yet devoid of all its tranquil charm.

Enter Koreelah, a grand, stone gated, 100-year-old pile decorated with towering pines and old-growth forest only four minutes from Byron town.

The 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 6-car home is set on 3.88-hectares neighbouring the likes of Australian businessman and Celebrity Apprentice boss Mark Bouris, singer Angus Stone and former Nine boss David Gyngell.

Through the sandstone foyer, the elegant old dame boasts four-metre-high ceilings a central stone fireplace and open-plan living spaces. It’s here the caterer’s sized kitchen – replete with stainless-steel appliances and temperature-controlled wine storage –  living and dining area spills towards the outdoor space.

Ideal for outdoor entertaining, the home is replete with a 16-metre outdoor mineral pool, five-person spa and full-sized pizza oven that soaks all while soaking in views from Mt. Warning to the coast.

Elsewhere the five bedrooms all open out to the wraparound veranda while the main has access to its own, private covered deck, ensuite and outdoor bathtub.

Further, a section of the home – complete with kitchen and living area – can easily transform into a secondary accommodation, nanny zone or home office with separate entrance and courtyard.

Moreover, the home offers an 80-tree olive grove, irrigated with town water, a 20-tree citrus orchard alongside mano, apple, guava and jackfruit trees. Keeping its green appeal, the residence has solar panels and a 75000L rainwater stores.

Pacifico Property’s Christian Sergiacomi takes the home to auction on April 16 with a guide of $9-$9.5 million.

The ball is in the buyer’s court with this knockdown/rebuild opportunity

Glenhaven in Sydney’s Hills District is one of those areas that locals tend to keep to themselves. Leafy with large blocks on offer, the suburb takes its name from its valley location, with the northern end originally known as the Glen and the southern end called the Haven. 

En route from Parramatta to the Hunter, Glenhaven has become an ideal place for growing families in search of a little more space, or even room to house several generations under one roof.

The challenge is finding properties that tick all the right boxes.

As demand for trades and supply chain issues continue to ease, now could be the right time for a knockdown/rebuild project for would-be buyers looking to create their dream home.

Fairmont Homes specialises in knockdown/rebuild projects in Sydney. General manager at Fairmont Homes, Daniel Logue, said there are key features to look for when choosing a knockdown/rebuild site.

“The key items we look for are the site falling to the street, not to the rear, to help with stormwater drainage as well as access to the site,” he said. “Neighbouring property front setbacks are also important. In some older areas, the older houses are set closer to the street, meaning your new home will have to be set to suit.

“Value for money and the return on the end sale price of the home is another issue.”

If possible, he said designing a home that meets the criteria of the Complying Development legislation will speed up approvals considerably.

While suitable knockdown/rebuild sites can be hard to find in Glenhaven, there are still hidden opportunities if you know where to look.

One block at 158 Gilbert Road, Glenhaven is ideally suited for rejuvenation. With almost 850sqm to play with, it slopes down to the street and sits between neighbouring properties that have already been stylishly updated.

 

 

An existing basketball court at the rear could provide the perfect teen backdrop to a family home, or it could make way for a larger house with landscaped gardens and pool. Alternatively, it could be the perfect position for a cabana or granny flat to serve as in-law accommodation or a source of secondary income.

With recent sales of completed homes in nearby streets reaching well above $5 million, it’s a great opportunity to make a slam dunk of a buy into one of Sydney’s best kept secrets.
