The Glasshouse is one of the most spectacular Architect designed homes around Byron Bay, enjoying magnificent views from the hinterland to the Byron lighthouse. Surrounded by nature the property provides complete privacy and space, yet within a short distance to crystal clear beaches, tropical hinterland bush walks and cafes, it offers the sublime lifestyle of the Northern Rivers.
A mix of architectural materials, The Glasshouse is mainly constructed from glass, timber, concrete and steel, while wooden joinery adds warmth to the living and dining areas.
Panoramic windows are integrated into the northern facade to make the most of the available light and warmth, and the internal planning with sliding walls and internal/external blinds generate a variety of contemporary settings.
The residence features wrap-around verandahs that frame the views ranging from the wider landscape to the surreal private setting. The kitchen—a chef’s dream— slides open to an outdoor dining area, and includes an industrial sized Maytag oven, two Leibherr double fridges, and ample food preparation areas.
Downstairs the impressive grand cinema room is a must-have for any teenage retreat, while the adults can relax around the theatre of two fireplaces upstairs or ease into a favourite book in the mezzanine library—a lofty space surrounded by sky views and the sounds of nature.
The architect Alec Tzannes has created a contemporary masterpiece, nestled within this five-acre property. The grounds are simply magnificent, featuring a waterfall, private lake and orchard, boardwalks and secret gardens for the kids to play in.
There is an additional two-bedroom pool house, staged for family, caretaker, a nanny or guests, with a private kitchen; fully self-contained with its own sub-tropical gardens it overlooks the tranquil setting of an inground pool.
