According to The Daily Telegraph, the 1960s beach house was bought, barely a week into its marketing, for $2.3 million.

The tradie couple intend to renovate the spacious two-level, four-bedroom property using their own building and design company, J & E Projects, which they launched in 2018.

The 500-square-metre block has a large tropical garden, with plenty of space for their two adorable ­Weimaraner dogs, Islae and Harlow, to run around.

Elyse and Josh made the move from Melbourne to Byron Bay to chase a more sustainable lifestyle, noting that the Byron community was much more environmentally conscious.
