Historical charm meets modern luxury in this incredible mansion tucked away in the Bryon Bay hinterlands that has just hit the market.

The four-bedroom, four-bathroom 1907 homestead has an interesting history as it was originally built in Coraki and relocated to Federal in 1994 where it was beautifully restored to ooze luxury and period charm.
