Harvest, Byron Bay to have 149 energy-efficient houses

Byron Bay’s sustainable master-planned community Harvest, by Tower Holdings, will be the biggest house and land release in Byron in decades. 

It will feature 149 energy-efficient homes set on a 150 acre property.

Every home will include water tanks, solar panels, electric vehicle chargers and Tesla home batteries.
 
Existing bushland within site will be retained and enhanced through rehabilitation works. 

The site plan will also conserve 38.4 hectares of existing vegetation, including 2.9 ha of existing frog habitat, to preserve endangered species of Wallum Froglet and Wallum Sedge-Frog.

The community will have a strict ‘no dogs and cats as pets’ rule to further protect native wildlife.

Terry Agnew’s Tower Holdings paid $7m for the then-farming zoned parcel in 2014 with his then partner Villaworld hoping for a 300-lot estate.
 
Two of Australia’s leading building companies, Metricon and Brighton Homes, have designed Harvest’s homes on the site off Ewingsdale Road.

Knight Frank agent Adam Ross will be heading the sales in conjunction with Byron Bay First National’s Chris Hanley and Su Reynolds who marketing the initial batch of homes, expected to sell for over $3 million each. There will be a 10 lot auction on December 18.

The last big estate launch was in 2015 when the late John 'Strop' Cornell sold his 40 plus Fig Tree Fields, Ewingsdale building blocks, with buyers then designed their own homes.
