Professional surfer Owen Wright is selling Ahimsa, his redundant tree-change Berry district retreat.

The Culburra Beach-born wave rider used the property as his refuge while he was recovering from a career-threatening injury.

In late 2015 Wright suffered a traumatic brain injury just before the Pipeline Masters event in Hawaii.

Wright has listed his tree-change escape at Brogers Creek Road, Brogers Creek, since he has moved to the north coast of NSW, where he lives with partner, singer Kita Alexander, and their son.

The property offers privacy, views and private creek frontage.

The one-bedroom home sits in a cleared patch on the 2.39 hectare holding, with a full wall of bi-fold doors opening out to the large ironbark deck.

The kitchen offers a servery window on to the covered deck area.

Even the shower can be open to the outdoors.

Other than the cleared land around the house, the rest of the property is natural rainforest.

Wright, who purchased the Brogers Creek property in 2016 for $765,000, has called it his “little piece of heaven on earth”.

It’s also been used by his sister, fellow professional surfer Tyler.

Ahimsa has been listed by Kate Morgan of Ray White Gerringong without public price guidance.

The nearby property Boya, a late 1990s, one-bedroom 55sqm house on 8.6 hectares on Wattamolla Road, Woodhill, sold for $1,370,000 last month.

In early 2017, Wright made a return to professional competition, 15 months on from the head injury.

Wright also owns a three-bedroom apartment in Thirroul, which he bought for $605,000 in 2012.

He has owned in Byron Bay since 2010, when he paid $975,000 for a 1930s Federation home, architecturally designed by Running Dog Design.
