The spacious adult retreat

New Hope’s spacious adult retreat is a sanctuary you’ll never want to leave.

The property is named ‘New Hope’, and it is a true country manor, an idyllic and safe haven, protected from the outside world.

Agent Naish Stormon describes the property as “a sophisticated and stunning six-bedroom mansion with 360-degree views over a beautiful valley”.

The property exudes prestige. From the spacious parents’ retreat on the first floor to the large and separate triple garage, the layout and structure provides elegance and quality, comfort and convenience.

The parents’ retreat is a large and light space on the first floor. This spacious adult hideaway comprises an impressive double-sized bedroom, a large ensuite and a dressing room, all with north-facing windows. This level of the home also has ample space to further expand.

A guest suite on the ground floor, complete with ensuite, provides a luxury space for visitors to your highlands estate. With built-in robes, and lush carpet, this suite is conveniently situated away from the other ground floor bedrooms.

The rumpus room

The rumpus room is located away from the formal areas.

There are four other large bedrooms on this level together in their own wing, with an expansive family bathroom and a separate vanity or powder room. These rooms are light, well insulated and, of course, comfortable, thanks to the ducted heating which warms the home.

Outdoor entertaining

Outdoor entertaining is a given with space and views like this.

A free school bus to local schools collects primary school pupils from the front gate. Free buses to Canberra schools stop on Yass Valley Way, a short and safe walk from the front gate.

Yass itself sits on the lovely Yass River, a tributary of the Murrumbidgee, in the heart of prime agricultural lands.

Ne Hope from the air

Nestled in the lush Southern Highlands, New Hope is waiting for your family.

Once noted for its high-quality wool and merino studs, over the past 30 years the area around Yass has expanded its renown to become increasingly known for its vineyards and great produce.

Yass itself is a quiet town with a broad main street, attractive parks, handsome historic buildings and relaxed ambiance, all less than one hour from Canberra.

Space and elegance, a Yass address is your next location.

In Yass township, you can taste your way around excellent cafes, wine bars and restaurants. The ‘Canberra District’ wine region is named after the nearby capital and you’ll find plenty of world-class cellar doors.

This home presents a unique opportunity to own a contemporary country estate, in a vibrant and well-resourced town, close to Canberra.

The name, New Hope, encapsulates this property perfectly. With privacy and security, it’s a tranquil haven from the outside world.
