A slice of history with all our modern creature comforts could be yours in this rural property that’s hitting the market for the first time in a quarter of a century.
428 Yass River Road rests on 25 acres and has ample space for family and friends to join you as you relax in the countryside.
Ray White Rural Canberra and Yass Sales Executive David Alexander said one of the property’s appeals is its unique Victorian appearance.
“Obviously, the Victorian-style facade is a unique selling point. That being said, it was built in the 1980s, so you don’t get a lot of the maintenance drawbacks of a property of that era,” he said.
The five-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom property also features beautiful cornice work throughout the home, 450 metres of river frontage, exceptional views of the Yass Valley and a north/east aspect.
While there are nods to the past in the house – such as a fireplace – there’s also the modern comfort of reverse cycle air-conditioning.
As well as the stunning beauty of the house itself, David said the land surrounding it was just as beautiful for those keen to explore it.
“There are some shallow rock pools where you can see lots of fish,” he said, which is sure to make for some great adventures with the kids or lazy meanders.
Prospective homeowners can also take in the sweeping views of the rolling green hills and leafy trees from their veranda, which wraps around two sides of the house, and the outdoor entertaining space.
David said the property would suit those wanting plenty of space for a family to spread out or entertain friends at their new home.
Two garden sheds, lawn space, paddocks and a double garage with internal access to the house will give you all the room you could ask for.
Crisp parquetry flooring in some parts of the house and history-inspired design elements give the property a timeless feeling you can imagine yourself living in from when you first walk in the front door.
But he said those wanting to work from home or a quieter lifestyle should put 428 Yass River Road on this must-see list.
“There’s an excellent study with a view out the window; you’ve got a powder room attached to the study, as well.
“It promises a wonderful family lifestyle with a highly sought-after address.”
This one-of-a-kind property combines space with elegance and luxury but doesn’t sacrifice on location, with both Yass and Canberra a short drive away.
