Tennis champion Pat Rafter gets approval for Byron build

The former tennis champion Pat Rafter has wasted no time securing approval for his new home on Byron's outskirts.

It got the council tick two days before Christmas for a single storey dwelling on the 28 hectare property that Rafter and his wife Lara bought mid-last year.

There's no home at the $1.35 million coastal property, just grazing cattle. 

Rafter, who reached world number one in 1999, had locals fleetingly wondering if there'd be a tennis academy - Florida style.

The home will sit among huge fig trees.

The sportsman's purchase marked a return to NSW property for the Noosa based family.
