Bangalow Part 2

The house hunting continues! On Saturday we spent the entire day looking at property in Northern NSW. Our priority list: Rural View, 5-20 acres, near the beach and Bangalow, A huge fig tree, a home with Character that we can renovate. Keeping in the budget and trying to find the above is no easy task but lucky we have lots of time and we plan on finding the perfect property for us. I am so impulsive that its hard "just looking" at this stage, but we have so many things to work out. I will be living half the time in Brisbane, running my store and the other half living the country life, but I'm up for the challenge!


Gretel house is in Eureka, I was very surprised to find this gorgeous area so close to Byron, the tree lined streets and the entire area is so beautiful. We have not been on the property yet but we drove past and loved it. The property is only 5 acres which could be perfect and more manageable, apparently there is a guest house and seven bedrooms, again this property has lots of potential but no view which is on my priority list. 

Lornsmere House built in 1917 by the Scarabelloti Family. I noticed this home on the internet but it wasn't till seeing it in reality that we became interested, finally the agent is showing us houses we love. The positives: tennis court, pool, big fig tree, a studio, a guest house and beautiful gardens. The negatives, the house is over priced, the owners have gutted the kitchen and the living space is small, the entire house was built the wrong way around, the entry to the back of the home. We would have to add an extension for a living area and kitchen. The studio and the guest house is in ruins and would need to be completely re-done but we love the prospect of that. The guest house we would convert to a B&B and the added income would pay for maintenance on the property. The down side not one Macca tree, we have either 3000 tree's or zero!! It would be a complete renovation and repaint but if we could get it for the right price its our first real option and only 8 min to Bangalow and 15min to Byron and the beaches.


We have decided that buying a coffee plantation may be a little to adventurous, Just because we love drinking it doesn't mean we can produce it! looks a little daunting!

The creek behind the property supplied drinking water to the Scarrabellotti family before town water. My children would love this water hole.

Regardless my number 1 priority is to have a large fig tree, Sorry Lily I'm thinking a chandelier and a large old french table under this beautiful tree!


This picture is from another property and worth millions (out of our budget) but I can see us having our glass of wine, camp fire watching the sun set, Stress, what Stress!

Gorgeous houses Judy. My cousin is a Scarabelloti (not from the Lornsmere side though - there are many, many Scarabelloti's up here). My cousin lives in Coorabell and my mother (who grew up in Kyogle) would come over this way for the holidays when she was a little girl. Small world!

The fun is in the hunt- and the endless possibilities. You get to plan and dream wondering where you'll put this piece and that. Oh-happy hunting!
