Photographer and author Anna Swain and her husband, builder Andrew, have listed their charming Byron Bay family home.

Bought for $460,000 in 2013 when just a 684 sqm block of Pacific Vista Drive vacant block, Andrew went about building the home, completing it just seven months after starting.

Now stands a six bedroom, three bathroom home. 

Built from a blend of modern and reclaimed materials, the home has a French industrial warehouse feel.

It comes with nine sets of marching French doors salvaged from an old hotel in Rockhampton, antique sash windows and 100 year old restored French and Spanish tiles.

There's a saltwater pool, level backyard and a front courtyard complete with pizza oven and herb garden at the Pacific Vista Drive home.

Anna spoke at the recent Byron Bay Writers Festival where she showcased her first book, Burma Tiffins, Nuns and Turmeric, a photographic travel book capturing Burma's culture. 

Featuring floating villages, ox and carts, majestic pagodas, pink robed nuns and teak monasteries, the book has almost 300 photographs, some travel tales and recipes. 

First National Byron Bay agent Tara Torkkola takes the home to October 1 auction.
