Byron Bay Villa
This BKH-designed luxury villa on the north coast of New South Wales attracts celebrities, surfers, and “discerning Bohemians” to its four bedrooms, floating kitchen, private deck, and wet-edge pool. Furnishings are equally upscale with Kenzo-upholstered sofas, mirrored walls, Carrara marble, Aveda toiletries, and plenty of sunlight through domed skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows. Wategos Beach is a stone’s throw away, but the immediate area includes several more beaches, as well as a substantial collection of restaurants, cafes, bars, spas, and yoga studios. Pets are not allowed, however.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
