BLUEGREEN HOUSE Through the huge entrance doors the first glimpse of the pool tiled a dark sapphire and beyond, the verdant gardens and thatched gazebo poised over the lake. On the ground floor, the stainless-steel kitchen extends to an outside barbeque, then open-plans to the dining area and soaring ceiling of the living room. Sandstone surrounds the fireplace and the entire wall bi-folds open to invite in the balmy air and light of the sub-tropics. The second bedroom comes with a king bed (hat splits into 2 singles if need be) with overhead bunk.Sleeps 2 adults – or four children. In the bathroom is a huge handmade bath, twin vanities, one exactly the right height for the little person who usually has to use a stepladder to brush their teeth, and a satin-jet shower.

About the neighborhood
Set on 5 private acres and surrounded by macadamia and coffee plantations, BlueGreen is perfectly positioned between the beautiful beaches of Byron and the charming federation village of Bangalow and the hinterland beyond. Travel inland from Byron to discover a panoramic piece of paradise. Literally minutes from the color and chaos of Byron Bay are pristine rainforests and national parks, isolated waterfalls, panoramic views and rolling green hills reminiscent of the English or Scottish countryside. The BlueGreen House and Studio are located just 12 mins from Byron Bay, 5 mins to Bangalow and 5 mins to the closest beach (Broken Head). It is also easily accessible from Ballina/Byron airport (15 mins) and Coolangatta airport on the Gold Coast (45 mins).
