27/78 Cecil Street, Nimbin
Big, Bespoke and Beguiling
It's not often you come across a hand built bespoke home such as this one. For those who appreciate quality craftsmanship, this substantial building has been lovingly constructed of huge hardwood timbers spanning spacious rooms, with mixed hardwood timber floors throughout the upper level, slate throughout the lower level, and 'Sawment' walls - all materials which not only provide aesthetic beauty but give wonderful insulation in all seasons. Built using the majestic principles of Tudor construction, this is far more than a 'tudor copy'. Rather, it is a unique forest home which nestles beautifully amongst rainforest gardens and rises from the mature gardens with a sense of grandeur. And this huge 2174m2 block in the sought after Jarlanbah Permaculture Gardens Community is the perfect setting for such a home.
With 3 sizeable bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a separate laundry and a gallery loft, space and storage abound under the high pitched roof with raked ceilings with exposed beams. Light in the upper area streams in through sizeable dormer windows perfect for window seating, a book nook or a place to sit with a warm beverage and look out to the mountains through your leafy trees. The staircase to the upper level is a beautiful hand-crafted feature of the home, and the wide stairwell and loft walls are perfect for displaying colourful artwork.
Whilst the upper level is spacious yet with a cosy 'feel', the lower level is simply vast! Fully open plan, it is home to a massive kitchen area, a dining space and a living space able to be furnished in 'zones' to create space for formal and informal living. The central portion of this room is open to the highest point of the roof, creating a soaring sense of space and distinction. The outer walls of this room have large sliding glass doors, giving you easy-access indoor/oudoor living, and multiple accesses to the wraparound verandah areas. The walls of this room also show the structure though exposed timbers and lend themselves to a gallery style presentation of your favourite arworks. The living space features a central wood burning stove/heater and a bespoke metal chandelier.
On mains power and with solar hot water, the home is not the only space you will want to spent time. The land is landscaped with pathways and forest-like gardens; there's a lovely dam/pond, and for the avid gardener there's a double garage which can be a workspace as well as a vehicle housing.
