Bencluna is an historic 1893 homestead hidden on six acres of gardens and native rainforest in the Byron hinterland. It’s a world apart, yet only a handful of minutes down country lanes to charming Bangalow and Byron’s delights.
Built from timber felled on the property, the tall ceilings, handcrafted staircase and wrap-around veranda are a canvas of authenticity upon which the owners have lavished a sensitive restoration.
The result is a wholly captivating orchestration, with its palette of vibrant colours against an all-white backdrop. Indulgences include vibrant art, leather lounges and a dreamy bathroom with claw foot bath. Bose sound and Foxtel entertain and a country kitchen caters ably for feasts in the dining room or on the outdoor entertaining deck.
Four bedrooms plus a couple’s cabin in the garden accommodate up to 12, making Bencluna a marvellous gathering place. Children will be entranced by their bedroom retreat, where toys and games await. There is a tire swing hanging from a 100-year-old fig tree and your four-legged companion is welcome.
For those planning a wedding, Bencluna will surely catch the eye. Borrow the charming country church just down the road for a fairy tale setting to exchange vows. And for something blue, there is Byron’s bay.
