Tones and I has bought a $3.3 million house in Byron Bay and let me be the first to say: absolutely love this for her.
Byron Bay is obviously the numero uno celebrity spot in the world right now, but Tones and I – whose real name is Toni Watson – has a certain connection to the area. Just two years ago, she was busking on Byron’s streets. Now she’s an ARIA winner and one of the biggest names in Australian music. Why not add ‘property mogul’ to that list?
So, the house. It’s actually two houses on the one block, with a combined 12 bedrooms and six bathrooms. (Side note: 12 bedrooms for $3.3 million? Why the hell are we all still putting up with Sydney and Melbourne house prices when Byron is right there?)
According to the Daily Telegraph, the houses are renovated with high ceilings throughout, hardwood floors, and with each building overlooking a private garden oasis. Oh, and they have separate pools. Two pools! For $3.3 million!
Oh go on, then. Make it two pools.
Can we just stop and admire these floors for a second? And the way the living room opens out to that balcony? And the stained glass above the door?
Imagine the sesh you could have here.
Also, the properties are just 800 metres from the beach. (Or rather, where the beach used to be.)
It’s the second property in a year for Tones and I, who also bought a $5.1 million house in the Melbourne seaside suburb of Mt Eliza, near where she grew up.
Ofc, Tones and I’s latest acquisition puts her in the leagues of the Chris Hemsworth, Zac Efron, Matt Damon, Carrie Bickmore, Angus Stone and Gemma Ward, who all own properties in the Byron region.
This house SCREAMS ‘I will learn to surf this year’.
Zac Efron – Byron’s newest, and hopefully permanent, resident – reportedly splashed out on a $22 million property earlier this year, which features an absurd infinity pool I’m sure I could get used to.
It’ll do, I suppose.
New goal: become semi-famous, very rich, and buy in Byron Bay, then spend all my time whinging about how it’s become an influencer cesspool and ain’t like it used to be.
