$4.3M home will be knocked down just months after sale
Months after a renovated Byron Bay home sold for $4.3 million, there are plans to knock it down and replace it with new villas.
A proposal for a new multi-dwelling development at 27 Marvell St was lodged with Byron Shire Council on January 11.
The applicant, Candace Co Pty Ltd, is seeking approval for $2.43 million worth of works, including the demolition of an existing house and construction of three two-storey villas and three swimming pools.
The property, on the corner of Tennyson St across from Byron Bay Recreational Grounds, sold for $4.3 million on November 18 last year.
According to documents lodged with the council, the proposed development would involve private courtyards for each dwelling.
The applicant said in an architectural design statement the villas would be "a modern interpretation of the beach house" and would be "positioned on the site and afforded with both north and east facing courtyards allowing for outdoor living and recreation".
"A third courtyard, 'the yoga court' is provided on the opposite side of the villa for quiet
contemplation and meditation," they said in the document.
The DA is on public exhibition until February 9.
