Coolamon Scenic Drive, Coorabell
Regular readers will know of my promotion of ridgeline living on Coolamon Scenic Drive, Coorabell. Views, north aspect and a short drive to both Byron and Bangalow make it a sought after address. A vacant 11 acres at 784 Coolamon Scenic ticks all the boxes and is listed with Su Reynolds of First National for a pricey high 2 to 3 million. This is a bit of a stretch but an indication that other people view this address with equal esteem.

Le Chop – Still For Sale
Last month I promoted this business for sale and doing it again as its still needs a buyer. The owner is in poor physical health and needs to move on quickly from this small business making camphor laurel wooden chopping boards. This is a local ecologically sustainable business that value-adds the invasive Camphor Laurel timber into something useful; the natural anti-bacterial material is ideal for this purpose. Includes long lease on workshop, quality machinery, market and wholesale distribution. Was listed for $99K but please make an offer.
And there is more …
Also for sale by owner (and being assisted by BPS) is a Multiple Occupancy block of land with a basic house in Coopers Lane. Coopers Lane is 10 minutes west of Mullumbimby and turn left at Durumbal hall. The MO is a small acreage with excellent north east views. The house is solid but needs some work. There are also a number of sheds that are also in a bad condition. The house is on a steep slope so would not suit young kids. Email BPS for more information. For sale around $350,000 (cash buy only as will not receive bank finance).
Best House in the World
This family home in Vietnam has taken out the top award at the World Architecture Festival (WAF) in the Philippines this month. The Binh house, by Vo Trong Nghia Architects, has been judged the best house in the world for 2017.
Built using sustainable materials such as natural stone, wood and exposed concrete, the house in Ho Chi Minh City has an air of solid permanence, yet its stacked blocks maximise natural light and close links with nature, which the jury judged to be ‘often missing in modern cities’.
Garden terraces positioned on top and amongst the vertically-stacked spaces provide natural ventilation and daylight in every room. But the design has other benefits, allowing the family of three generations to live and interact together, despite age differences.
