Giovanni D'Ercole, the jewellery designer of Love and Hatred, has listed the River House, a five bedroom home in the Byron Bay hinterland.

Tucked away on the sub-tropical ridge, the 42 ha property has been listed through Nicolette van Wijngaarden at Unique Estates Australia with a $3.7 million asking price.

The timber home, entered through antique Indian doors, comes with cathedral ceilings. It has a spa therapy room with a hydrotherapy tub.

The 2005-built home is surrounded by stands of old native rainforest with small creeks that all feed into the billabong at the front of the house.

It comes with approval for six rural tourism cottages. 

D'Ercole paid $1.7 million in 2007 when it was bought from Mark Morgan. His other nearby property, Coorabella, the magical 125-year-old home on 23 hectares, remains a holiday rental. It was briefly listed for sale in 2013 at $7.5 million.

Panoramix Studio founder Bertrand Lalanne and his wife, Dianne secured the district's highest sale when La Grande Vue, their Peter Hobbs-designed home on a hectare holding sold at $4.25 million through Liam Annesley at LJ Hooker earlier this year.

Singer Natalie Imbruglia recently spent $1.3 million on a two hectare property with shack through Glen Irwin, of LJ Hooker Byron Bay.

Another recent Coorabell sale saw the veteran recording studio, The Music Farm sold at $2.9 million.
