Aussie singer songwriter Xavier Rudd has repriced his northern NSW retreat, dropping the price over recent weeks.

The popular songwriter, who is currently touring the USA and Canada, was asking $2,695,000 for his New Brighton home in the Northern Rivers region.

It was knocked down to $2.5 million, then to $2.39 million, with Katrina Beohm at Katrina Beohm Real Estate taking over the listing.

Rudd paid $722,500 for the land in 2012 before engaging Chris Walker Constructions to build the 220 sqm home on the banks of Marshall's Creek.

Built with a mix of native timbers and stone and designed to create a connection with nature, the homes oversized sliding glass doors open to a large deck that offers creek views.

The stylish home of course comes with a soundproofed recording studio with acoustic insulation.

Rudd has shared the four bedroom home with new wife, holistic wellness trainer Ashley Freeman. They wed in late 2016 in a Byron Bay Australian Aboriginal Ceremony.

Born near Torquay in Victoria, Rudd, who is described as an Australian surf/roots musician on his website, has released eight studio albums and has just completed his tour across 13 countries in Europe.

He began in Copenhagen in Denmark and finished in Madrid in Spain.

Rudd has always had a love for the Northern Rivers region.

He previously co-owned a home with now ex-wife, artist Marci Lutken-Rudd, in Burringbar before selling in 2007 for $850,000. They paid $595,000 in 2004.

Rudd also had a 20 hectare parcel in Wilsons Creek in the same region. He sold for $785,000, having paid $820,000 a year earlier.
