Icon On The Hill

Don't give up on your dream of having it all in idyllic Brunswick Heads. Finally, here is an iconic property that fulfills the most demanding wish list.

- Period character and proportions.
- Elevated block with rear lane access.
- Family sized flexible floorplan plus further self-contained accommodation.
- Renovated, extended and ready to move straight in.
- Walking distance to river, beach and cafes.

Standing tall on the only hill in Brunswick Heads, 68 Mullumbimbi St is a substantial home of historic significance, offering a unique marriage of period appeal and modern living.

Once the property of renowned identity Lester Phillips, the tower with rooftop viewing platform was designed to watch his 50-foot fishing trawlers, the Madonna and the Eastern Star, cross the Brunswick river bar.

Today that platform offers some of the most expansive views in town, from mountain peaks in the west, through to the river and Norfolk pines in the north and east. A unique setting from which to watch the sun set with a cool drink.

Landscaped garden terraces, and charming period features like the original timber bay windows immediately flag this house as a property of distinction. From the inside, those bay windows offer an elevated 180-degree panorama and allow northern light to stream into the main living/dining area. With its soaring atrium ceiling, original timber floorboards and feature spiral staircase, this room is a showstopper.

But this is a house with many more surprises to reveal. A substantial 2001 renovation and extension has added a modern kitchen with stainless appliances and walk in pantry; 2 new bathrooms and laundry; and a separate bedroom, bathroom, living area and kitchenette that can be closed off from the rest of the house as self-contained accommodation. While the home is fully airconditioned, louvered windows to the east allow cooling sea breezes to flow through.

Walking through the rear living room reveals a low maintenance garden oasis with veranda, landscaped beds, paving and lawn leading to a substantial converted garage space with direct access to the rear lane. A further rear carport and another garage under the front of the house leaves this rear building available for a multitude of possible uses.

And then there's the 'tower' bedroom at the top of that spiral staircase (the home’s fourth full-sized bedroom), offering a 360-degree vista across the entire village.

Homes of this substance and character rarely come up for sale in Brunswick Heads, and when they do, they often require extensive and expensive renovation. This one is ready to move right in with scope to add your own personal touches to a flexible floorplan.

Only 30 minutes from Gold Coast and Ballina airports, and 15 minutes to Byron Bay, Brunswick Heads is quickly becoming a next property hot spot, coveted for its unspoilt charm. The broad Brunswick River offers family fishing and swimming, including the renowned Torakina river beach and reserve. The surf beaches are pristine, the Poinciana shaded pub overlooking the river is famous, and the town has fostered a flourishing café and restaurant culture.
