If it’s your dream to live in a home that’s bursting with original features, this is a property you’ll fall in love with. Built a hundred years ago, Middleton Cottage is a charming heritage-listed property and one of Byron Bay’s original homes.
Located on Middleton Lane, this desirable home is hidden away behind a white picket fence and a beautiful frangipani tree. When you step inside, you’ll be impressed by the decorative elements as well as the generously proportioned rooms, traditional floorboards, tongue and groove walls, ceilings and original casement windows.
The contemporary chef’s kitchen has everything you could wish for. The current owner loves to entertain, so there’s a large stove with dual oven and louvres positioned to catch the easterly sea breeze, which will keep you cool as you cook. The large and airy open plan living space is relaxing and inviting. And there’s an open fireplace – the perfect spot to chill out with loved ones on a fresh winter’s evening.
The main bedroom is huge and awash with light. You’ll find floor to ceiling built-in robes, polished floors, and original casement windows. Plus, there’s another generously sized bedroom, and the bathroom is stunning! White subway tiles, bidet, and a wonderfully deep bath where you can enjoy a long soak at the end of the day.
Outside, you’ll find an enormous covered verandah – great for all-year-round, outdoor living and afternoon get-togethers with family and friends. There’s also a separate pavilion that consists of a large bedroom, bathroom and study area plus an additional studio, currently used as a teenage “hangout” space.
Walk down the wooden stairs to the lawn, and you’ll discover beautifully landscaped gardens. And despite being a stone’s throw from everything Byron Bay has to offer, this is a secure, private spot that’s peaceful and relaxing.
You don’t get many properties like this on the market. The combination of old and new design-features creates a laidback look that’s effortlessly stylish and beautifully executed.
