‘Crocodile Dundee’ Estate, Byron Bay
November 30, 2012 - New South Wales
Famous actor Paul Hogan (aka Crocodile Dundee) previously owned this 46-hectare home where he married co-star Linda Kozlowski in 1990.
The property, on the market for offers of over US$7.1 million, is nestled in the rolling hills of Possum Creek in the Byron Bay Hinterland and encompasses over 800 sq m of opulent living space, including a majestic central hall with six-metre high ceilings and a sweeping staircase to the second level.
A 1.3 km long asphalted driveway winds from the main gate down through the property and surrounding rainforest trees before reaching the river and front facade of the home.
Hand-finished by Italian artisans who lived on the site for over a year, the home features hand-cut tiles, stained glass, arched windows and wood and plaster detailing.
The layout includes a formal lounge with a large open fire overlooking the river; a dining room that seats 16 overlooking an English country courtyard garden and an informal dining area which overlooks the pool.
The master suite on the first floor features en-suites and a huge balcony overlooking the river and the adjacent guest wing includes two en-suite bedrooms and a resort-style pool.
The estate also includes a cabinet timber plantation. Cedar Springs is located 15 minutes from Byron Bay and 45 minutes from Coolangatta International Airport.
