Mike and Megan Fishwick have sold their mid-century modernist-inspired Suffolk Park home.
The stunning homebuild, minutes from Byron Bay, featured last year on Grand Designs Australia.
The First National Byron Bay agent Tara Torkkola secured the snappy sale having given a $2.2m price guidance. The 800 sqm building block was sold in 2017 for $645,000 in the Seacliffs rainforest estate developed by Jonathan Levy’s Unison Projects.

Mike, a clothing designer for a local street/surfwear label, and Megan, founder of Feel Good Revolution took their inspiration from the internationally acclaimed 1951 Ludwig Mies van der Rohe-designed Illinois weekender for Dr Edith Farnsworth.
The couple lived in a caravan with their three children for almost a year while undertaking the project. The Foxtel LifeStyle channel presenter Peter Maddison suggested it was “a uniquely Aussie version of a modernist building”.
“It’s incredible because they’ve put so much energy into creating a most unlikely building given their budget,” Maddison said.
The three-bedroom, two-bathroom house features an outdoor pool, entertainment deck and a large carport. The kitchen, covered in handcrafted kitchen tiles, includes a cafe-style rangehood and spacious dining with a bespoke dining nook.
There’s a $1.2m median house price at Suffolk Park which has 18 properties for sale. Based on five years of sales, Suffolk Park has seen a compound growth rate of 10 per cent for houses, according to realestate.com.au. The median has been above $1m since 2016.
