Property Of The Week: 225 Broken Head Rd, Newrybar, NSW
“Malibu meets Aspen” in this luxury and expansive Byron hinterland residence owned by a global fitness guru.
Equal parts glamorous barn and sophisticated country retreat, Cedar Hill has it all covered – from an enviable location in the Byron Bay hinterland to inspired luxury interiors.
Wellness entrepreneurs James and Chrissy Duigan purchased the property in 2019 for $2.415m then engaged luxury construction company MRH Build and award-winning interior designer Jase Sullivan to reimagine the residence, which totals 696sq m of internal living and can command as much as $70,000 a week as a five-star holiday rental (Hugh Grant and Theresa Palmer are rumoured to be previous guests).
Today the six-bedroom, eight-bathroom, turn-key trophy home on 2ha is listed with Amir Prestige principal Amir Mian who with no confirmed a price guide, though recent reports place the asking figure to be in the vicinity of $20 million.
Described by the agent as ‘Malibu meets Aspen’ the secluded property lives up to its name with two cedar-clad pavilions connected by a glass corridor and a contemporary blend of rich textures from Blackbutt wall panelling, exposed ceiling beams and grass cloth walls to aged-copper tapware, polished concrete floors and natural stone surfaces.
Walls of retractable glass in the ‘living barn’ seemingly disappear – the outside world invited in alongside an abundance of natural light. This shared space has a large open plan lounge and dining zone with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace for winter, but also flows to a covered terrace for summertime soirees.
The adjoining kitchen is a caterer’s delight with a full working second kitchen in the butler’s pantry, ideal for celebrating in style. Next-door a bar, or possible media room, is yet another spot to unwind with friends and family.
After hours the accommodation wing, also known as the ‘sleeping barn, has a grand atrium space and houses four bedrooms with ensuites on the lower level with two palatial suites upstairs including one with a north-facing balcony. This top floor hideaway also features a private ‘pyjama lounge’.
There is additional space on the estate for guests in the two-bedroom self-contained cottage complete with its own private carport and covered outdoor area with barbecue.
Given that the vendor formerly operated Bodyism gyms around the world and wrote a best-selling fitness book Clean And Lean, it’s no surprise Cedar Hill is also home to a host of resort-style features such as a vast wet-edge mineral pool and spa, a fire pit for mindful reflection.
Cedar Hill is approximately 12kms from the beaches, boutiques and eateries of Byron Bay and 21 kilometers from from Ballina Airport.
