“Banyula” Aboriginal Meaning ” Many Trees ”
Revive your senses and reward yourself with an idyllic paradise which is simply without comparison. A 9.7 acre oasis of lush greenery in the heart of tranquil Tallebudgera, the meandering 150m bitumen driveway fringed with Hoop and Norfolk pines and over 80 native gums heralds your arrival at “Banyula” (Aboriginal for many trees), where over one acre of landscaped gardens and a thriving orchard of fruit trees encase an award-winning home.
A cantilevered walkway made from recycled ironbark timber from the original cottage guides you towards this exceptionally presented home. Light and bright interiors fuse with the warmth of exposed brick, timber and stone finishes, while high ceilings add an extra element of beauty and charm. Entertain in style with an expansive open plan kitchen with thick stone benchtops, stainless steel appliances and twin integrated fridge/freezer overlooking a spacious living and dining area. The large butler’s pantry, fitted with a commercial-sized fridge/freezer, ensures there’s ample prep space for catering large scale affairs or take the party outdoors to the poolside dining pavilion. Grab a chilled drink from the 120 bottle bar fridge, fire up the teriyaki-style built-in BBQ and gather around the suspended polished concrete dining table while soaking up the stunning surrounds.
Outdoors also spoils you with an abundance of havens for relaxation or family fun. Alfresco fun awaits on the large entertaining decks that bookend the internal living and dining zones, including a sundeck and firepit, which captures the northern sun. Summer escapades can continue all year round with the 80,000L heated saltwater pool, or get back to nature and explore the bamboo walking trails or enjoy wholesome creek-side adventures.
Back indoors, a sophisticated master suite beckons. Framed by a picture window with scenic dam and garden vistas, it’s accompanied by a walk-in wardrobe, ensuite with oversized rain shower and even your very own outdoor ensuite where you can feel at one with nature and enjoy a soak under the stars. Bedroom two is unique, with its very own loft, plus there’s a modern main bathroom and large shower. Guests can revel in peace and privacy in the separate studio while working from home is effortless with a detached office space. Fringed with full-height glass, the only issue will be not getting distracted by the picturesque acreage views which await!
Along with parking for up to 13 cars (and room to store a caravan or boat), the property comes with a 200 year licence for pumping rights from the creek, 5 water tanks holding 130,000L, two ducted air-conditioning units, solar hot water and 2.8kW solar power.
Nestled in seclusion, it’s only an 8 minute drive to Tallebudgera State School or St. Lutherans Anglican College, 12 minutes to Burleigh Beach and its cafes, restaurants and shops. This is an outstanding opportunity to live the superior semi-rural lifestyle you deserve – arrange your inspection today.
