Property in Focus

Magenta Rose On Kingsley Lane

62 Kingsley Lane, Byron Bay


Positioned in the “Golden Grid” or known by locals as “the old part of town”, this is arguably Byron Bay’s most tightly held precinct.

“Magenta Rose” is a master built home where the woodwork and timbers used throughout the property have been finished to the highest level creating a stylish, warm and inviting environment.

Built over 2 levels, the clever thought in designing the floorplan allows the owner to reside in the home while guests or family members can have their own private spaces on either level. Alternatively the whole property can be used and enjoyed as one complete home.

Downstairs is extremely versatile with the use of a retractable operable wall with remote stacking bay. French doors flow out to the garden entertaining areas. The upper level boasts ocean glimpses and views to the hinterland and Mt Warning where stunning sunsets can be enjoyed on the extensive verandah.

The location speaks for itself being only moments’ walk to everything yet quiet and peaceful.
