Mel has interpreted the owner’s brief to perfection just like the beautiful interiors she’s created for the likes of internationally renowned fashion label Spell & The Gypsy in their Byron boutique and HQ, .
“We’ve achieved a simply stunning space that feels both refined yet homely and makes the most of its beautiful surrounds,” says Mel. “I love that the interiors open up to magnificent Hinterland views and that the stone bath is positioned perfectly to take in the breathtaking Hinterland sunsets, perched as it is beside a big window, providing views right down the valley. I also love the outside alfresco area where you can float from inside to out through the large doors that lead out from both the living room and master bedroom.”
The Le Viti Barn sits right in the heart of Newrybar, one of the Byron Hinterland’s most historic and quaint towns. It’s Hinterland holiday perfection for a couple, small family or group of friends, and particularly wonderful for wedding accommodation for the bride and groom, and goodness knows Byron has got to be high up on the list for that most special of celebrations!
Le Viti Barn is pure sophistication, a perfect balance of warm rustic elements and high-end luxury, from it’s dark stained weatherboards and over-sized timber barn doors to its white-washed walls, soaring ceilings and super luxe fittings and finishes.
The interior layout provides seamlessly integrated indoor/outdoor spaces and open plan living, as well as smaller, more intimate nooks for quieter, relaxed contemplation. Perhaps a board game around the fireplace, a cosy up with a book in the oversized Inartisan couch, or a few hours invested in a catch up on your favourite Netflix series is more your thing. Cook up a feast in the perfectly provisioned kitchen with the freshest of produce from one of the local markets or if you’ve downed tools for the holidays, Newrybar’s iconic and award-winning Harvest Restaurant and Deli are a few minutes walk away. And come day break, the historic Harvest Bakery is there for your must-have morning coffee and pastry.
A must too is a shop at the Newrybar Merchants which stocks a collective of creative works from local artisans as well as curated fine goods, Driftlab for fashion, and Luther & Co for old and new collectables. And of course the hustle and bustle of Byron with it’s award-winning restaurants, bars, eclectic boutiques and pristine beaches is just 15 minutes away.
And at day’s end? It’s spectacular Hinterland sunsets past the 100 year old fig tree and across the Puglia-inspired gardens filled with citrus, olive trees, rosemary and lavender. We suspect it’ll also be with cocktail in hand, spiked with some freshly-picked citrus and a sprig or two of herbs from the pots on the verandah. The perfect accompaniment to that of course is the perfect cheese platter and we can help you out there too. You’re most welcome at Le Viti!
