A 3.2-hectare property for sale in Yass is a horse-lover’s dream with its architecturally-designed home complemented by horse paddocks, shelter sheds and stables galore.

On the market for $865,000, the property at 588 Yass Valley Way is a rural retreat with all the equine infrastructure needed for someone looking to take horse-ownership to the next level or someone wanting to explore equine business opportunities.

The property is already attracting interest from potential buyers in Sydney, Canberra and the Blue Mountains and according to the agent, it is difficult to find a property of this size (3.2 hectares or around 8 acres) in the area that is not part of an estate.

“It is one of the very few properties around that is set up for horses or for people who want to do agistments or have a horse-transport company,” said listing agent Edwina Brown of Yass Real Estate.

She said that the property is reasonably priced given the level of infrastructure and benefits from easy access to both the Barton and Hume Highways.

Another big drawcard is the “charming” house, which boasts four double bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, timber floors and a double-garage.

“As you drive down the tree-lined drive flanked by exceptional horse paddocks you will realise that you have reached something special,” said Ms Brown.

“Architecturally inspired, the four-bedroom home is at the heart of the property and perfectly positioned to capture the northern sun.

“Walls of glass, with sliding doors to the alfresco areas, effortlessly ground this home in the landscape. Curved ceilings throughout the formal and casual living areas accentuate the emphasis this home places on style,” Ms Brown said.

“A bespoke timber island bench forms the centrepiece of the kitchen overlooking the casual living and with easy access to the alfresco entertaining areas that wrap around the home.

“Four double bedrooms, master with ensuite, all have access to the sunny north-facing verandahs and courtyard.”

Ms Brown said the superb equine infrastructure helps the property to stand out “for the discerning horse owner”.

“Seven interconnecting paddocks and a grass work paddock all have netting and electric fences, some with shelter sheds,” Ms Brown said.

“A further stable block provides additional horse accommodation. Water is reticulated from a private bore to troughs in each paddock.”
