Situated on a protected, level hilltop overlooking green rolling hills of the Byron Bay hinterland is Friday Hut Estate. Arriving on the meandering drive one feels the immediate tranquility of the stately gardens shaded by three massive century-year-old fig trees. Friday Hut Estate affords the perfect combination of peace and privacy while still centrally located: it is a 15-minute drive to central Byron, Mullumbimby or Federal & just five minutes to Bangalow.
The architecturally designed main house is uniquely contemporary and was built to the very highest standard by a local builder for his own family. It includes four generous bedrooms & three & a half bathrooms. It makes creative use of timber, marble, commercial grade aluminium & tilt slab concrete construction to realise a striking yet comfortable home. The attention to detail is unparalleled with thoughtful consideration given to every finish both for aesthetic appeal & lasting quality.

As a modern Australian house, it also incorporates passive solar design leaving it extremely well suited to the local climate.
Extensive use of bi-fold doors allows the house to be opened to the garden to fully capture the best of indoor/outdoor living. A generous undercover entertainment deck overlooks an 18m, infinity-edge salt-water pool & the valley beyond. Nestled in the mature gardens you will also find a charming two bedroom cottage, a well-appointed studio, the old stables art studio & a generous workshop.
The cottage is a thoughtfully converted farm building. It has slate tile & timber flooring throughout. The two-bedroom, one bathroom home has been renovated to include modern conveniences while keeping the charm of the original hardwood beams & timber frame windows.
The one-bed studio features a large bathroom with claw-foot tub & living area with kitchenette. It lends itself to multiple purposes as a guest space, teenager retreat or home office. The dwellings are fully council approved & the property features ample water storage, a potable bore, water easement to Possum Creek, a northeast aspect, rooftop PV solar panels, Easy care botanical gardens & a mature fruit orchard.
