Ex-Sydney Publican lists his 20-year Byron Bay jewel…

The Jewel, a property on the edge of Byron Bay hinterland, has just come on the market.

The Announcement:

An incredibly rare opportunity has come on the market to secure a spectacular property on the dress circle ridge of the Byron Bay hinterland, with sweeping views of Broken Head, home to the region’s new royalty the Hemsworth brothers.

The Jewel is perfectly positioned on this most rare of coastal escarpments with stunning 360-degree views, this idyllic estate overlooks the ocean, fields and rainforest in complete privacy and seclusion.

With more space and cleaner air, The Jewel is nestled in the heart of Australia’s answer to Los Angeles’ ritzy Beverly Hills. Hollywood stars are your neighbours in a location chosen by half a dozen offshore and local film and television productions for its amazingly diverse and sumptuous locations.

Situated on a brilliantly positioned, sprawling 6.8 acres corner block the accommodation consists of a stunning, fully renovated century old Queenslander with wrap around balconies along with two modern dully self-contained Balinese style villas.

The property has been run as a successful exclusive accommodation destination for more than a decade. Yet it would also make a stunning, generational family compound.

The Jewel is close to the thriving hub of Byron Bay, its surrounding beaches and stunning hinterland. It is conveniently located only a few minutes to the fashionable boutique village of Newrybar with its hatted restaurant Harvest and just up the rise from the exclusive hillside market town of Bangalow.

The property’s vendor, ex-Sydney Publican, Rick De Leede credits the place as instrumental to his successful battle with stage 4 terminal cancer triggered by melanoma.

“We have been in the Byron area for 20 years and it took us six months to find this place which has been the most wonderful the home for past 19 years,” he said.

“While the pictures of the property are a terrific showcase of its beauty, the only way to do justice to the views is to stand on it oneself. Every part of this property captures the Pacific breezes providing essential, natural cooling from the Northern Rivers climate which can get very warm.

“I truly believe that it has its clean, green and wonderfully peaceful environment has healing power,” he said.

“The phrase once in lifetime can be over-used but in the case of this breathtaking property, it really is the case. There are quite literally, only two handfuls of properties with even similar views that exist.

And only a few other places in the neighbourhood that have changed hand in the past 18 months. But this is, as the name suggests, the jewel on this spectacular ridge,” Janis Pekins of Real Estate of Distinction, Byron Bay, said.

“It is improbable that a place of this quality in this position will come onto the market in the foreseeable future. It is, indeed, a property that people would search for a year to find.

The entrance to this grand estate is a tree-lined drive past stables, a horse arena and a large outcrop of native trees.

This leads to the magnificent residential and entertainment compound that main residence and two luxury villas, five large en-suite bedrooms all with knockout views affording space for your whole family or friends.

All the residences are beautifully appointed featuring lavish marble bathrooms, generous wood burning fireplaces, walled gardens and timber decking.

The property’s rare position amid abundant tropical gardens and manicured lawns, provides both panoramic views that sweep across a lush valley and capture the magnificent coast from Broken Head to Lennox Head.

The Jewel is just 5 – 10 minutes to the world famous beaches of Broken Head and Byron Bay, 10 minutes to the charming seaside township of Lennox Head and 20 minutes from the Ballina/Byron Regional Airport, and within a handy 1 hour drive of Coolangatta airport and Gold Coast shopping malls.

This is unlikely to last.

Sale is by Expressions of Interest with the closing date 7th May 2021. The price expectation for this property is $10M AUD +
