'Glen Isle' – An Idyllic Mullumbimby Estate

One of Byron Shire’s most idyllic and historic residences, ‘Glen Isle’, constructed circa 1912, is a timeless residence situated on six stunning acres adorned with mature trees and established gardens just minutes from the vibrant town of Mullumbimby. 

The main home, an impressive and expansive, master-build offers a very grand, open plan living room leading to three bedrooms, two modern bathrooms, a study and charming timber kitchen.

Rich with character and packed with original features, soaring 12ft ceilings, hardwood floors, old patterned glass, pressed metal ceilings and tongue and groove joinery throughout, ‘Glen Isle’ captures the allure of a bygone era.

The north-facing bullnosed veranda, stretching the full length of the home, offers multiple spaces to relax and soak in the views over the home paddocks and grounds and over to Mt Chincogan from a perfect northerly aspect. 

Beyond the main residence discover ‘The Barn’, a generous and luxurious one-bedroom guest accommodation crafted from local timber with polished concrete and raked ceilings and ‘‘The Cabin’, a self-contained one-bedroom workers cottage. Additional infrastructure includes a workshop with three-phase power and solar batteries, a machinery shed, and a double garage providing ample covered parking,
