A brand new rustic yet contemporary residence; a breathtaking personal sanctuary; peaceful and private; all for your pleasure! Our uniquely designed and purpose built dwelling has two distinct spaces:
“THE LOFT AT RISE”
Upstairs above the barn area is the primary area let for accommodation which we call The Loft at Rise. The Loft at Rise offers fully self contained kitchen with gas cooktop and oven, indoor fireplace with a wood fired oven, living and study area and a massive outdoor deck with gas BBQ. With three bedrooms, including a luxurious master bed suite with a king bed, ensuite, and its own private balcony. Relax on the deck (or while you rest on the king bed) and gaze over the picturesque green open pastures with cattle grazing, adjoining forest and mountain ranges. Spend the evening soaking in the tranquil surroundings or in front of the indoor fireplace. Booking “The Loft” automatically gives you partial access and use of areas downstairs (“The Barn at Rise “) for undercover car storage, gym equipment and table tennis. Gym equipment supplied includes yoga mats, TRX, basic weights, bands etc. Kitchen – there is a fully self-catering kitchen available; including crockery, saucepans, napery, etc. The wood-fired oven underneath the fireplace allows you to cook while you enjoy a glass of wine and watch the flickering from an open fire. From our pantry you will find the basic non perishables for use such as cooking oils etc. Coffee – Nespresso pod coffee machine supplied with pods, enjoy! Entertainment – 32″ tv, with a DVD/Blu-ray player and a BOSE sound system able to be used to play music from your smart phone.
“THE BARN AT RISE”
Used primarily for events this is the lower floor area which offers over 160m2 of beautiful yet rustic Scandinavian style barn area – with stylish extra high ceilings and huge bifold doors opening to expansive views over the neighbouring country side “The Barn at Rise ” provides a breathtaking backdrop to any event! The Barn is lined with natural stained timber and has sealed and polished concrete flooring. From day to day this area is used to store farm machinery and equipment, but is cleared and transformed to create an amazing reception space, with no stress about the elements ruining your day and no need for a marque! See below for more information on weddings. (Please note for standard bookings of “The Loft” this area is not fully cleared out and will be partly taken up with stored farming equipment )
Take a casual stroll or cycle (road bikes supplied) through our beautiful Burringbar Valley with picturesque waterfalls and forest streams, green pastures and plantations. Just 30 minutes easy drive to all that Byron Bay has to offer – beaches, cafes and markets. There is a beautiful secluded beach 20 mins away. The best of all worlds – secluded and quite, nestled in a farming community close enough to a great variety of beaches (secluded or busy) including those in and around Byron Bay. You can easily get in amongst the action of Byron or the Gold Coast if you choose, but you can well and truly stay away if that’s what you prefer. For the fit, walk the 8kms of our own on-farm tracks through pastures, forest, rainforest and walk by the farms’ waterfalls. (ease of access is subject to seasonal conditions) For those who enjoy a fitness challenge, a steep climb to the rear of the property allows access to the 5000 hectare Mt Jerusalem National Park adjoining. The park is not developed for tourism and offers an untouched sanctuary to explore by mountain bike or walking along firetrails. A GPS is recommended as tracks are extensive and it’s easy to get lost. Recommended things to see/do:
Easy day trips include:
- Byron Bay
- Mt Warning (can be climbed)
- Gold Coast (any part or any attraction)
- Tropical Fruit World
- Scenic Rim National Park and Natural Bridge
- Famous Snapper Rocks Surf Break
Weekend Cycle Retreats
Our cattle farm backs onto the 5000 hectare Mt Jerusalem National Park. The park doesn’t have any tourist facilities and is raw and unexplored with very few visitors. There are spectacular single trails running over ridges along the range and plenty of fire trail runs. Explore secluded rainforest rock pools and waterfalls. Details of locations and tracks will be supplied to guests.
Ride through the picturesque Tweed Valley and take on the famous Burringbar Range with spectacular scenery and coffee shops aplenty. Typical options include a 60-100k ride Saturday and 50 – 60k follow up on Sunday.
Enjoy over 130 secluded and tranquil hectares, perched high in the hinterland overlooking the surrounding valley. Rise Farm is a unique ecolux haven with accommodation built into the loft of a Scandinavian style barn.
