Welcome to Sweethaven - a charming, waterfront 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom property located at Belongil in Byron. Featuring dual residences, this classic cedar timber home and separate studio/cottage sits within lush tropical gardens and trees atop a grassed lawn on the banks of beautiful Belongil Creek. The double storey main house is sunny, bright and breezy, with high cathedral ceilings, exposed timber beams and easy coastal styling. In an ode to yesteryear, it also features stunning stained glass windows and reclaimed timber throughout. A large country kitchen with stainless appliances, sunny indoor and outdoor dining spaces and open living with plush furnishings promise relaxation and three light-filled bedrooms are warm and inviting.
The separate A-frame, 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage/studio is set in the shade of Sweethaven’s lush gardens and continues the country charm of the main house with stained glass windows, high ceilings, louvre windows and simple yet plush, beach-style interiors. Wander down cobblestone pathways to timber chairs set in the shade of the property’s trees and watch the world go by, beside the tranquil Belongil Creek. Stroll a short 200m to swim and play at Byron’s beautiful Belongil Beach and wander just 12 minutes along the beachfront to Byron Bay town. The Treehouse restaurant and Belongil Beach Cafe are also just a short 2 min walk away.
