Property Of The Week: 282 Skinners Shoot Road, Skinners Shoot, NSW
Byron’s grand old dame hits the market.
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.
