In the northern outskirts of Lismore City, on Tourist Scenic Drive 32, lies an original 1930s Art Deco 2-bedroom Queenslander farm house with a log fire and own swimming pool.
There are no other holiday-makers on this quiet and peaceful 5-acre property which means you have the large, salt-water swimming pool with covered timber deck all to yourselves during the swimming season.
It's very accessible and easily found providing a central base for Lismore & Byron Bay's Rainbow Region.
It's handy to Nimbin village 12km further up the road and Lismore City 18km (15mins) south from which Byron Bay can be reached in 40 minutes. A bus stop is at the front gates for local buses, tourist coaches and the Nimbin-Byron Shuttle.
Inside this grand country house, gracious rooms are perfectly complemented by extensive contemporary facilities.
