About MERELYN COSTELLO

Merelyn and Chris moved to Berry in 2006, building their own home on Berry Mountain. They had lived 30 years in Sydney but with their children grown up, they were looking for a beautiful place in the country to retire. Berry is perfect.

MERELYN COSTELLO purchased this house in 2010

Why MERELYN COSTELLO chose Berry

Merelyn was brought up in New Zealand and had always loved the south coast of NSW because it reminded her of New Zealand's beautiful countryside. Chris was brought up in the harsh western NSW countryside so was very happy to move to this idyllic part of the world. They enjoyed the Berry Mountain building experience so purchased land and built Arx Bella in 2010/2011. They took their first holiday rental at Christmas 2011 and haven't looked back since.

What makes this house unique

Chris and Merelyn loved the design and build of their home so used the same team to build Arx Bella. The house is completely unique in its design and they have decorated and furnished the house to create total comfort for their guest. The views from the wonderful vast tallow wood balconies are glorious and are a source of constant delight to their guests. Another wonderful feature is the 4 metre swim spa they have subtly nestled beside the house.
