Modern heritage in Yass



The historic Walgrove homestead, constructed in 1905, is the perfect piece of countryside heaven.

“Walgrove has all the country charm of a magnificent Southern Highlands retreat, ideal for a family escaping the city, without the exorbitant price tag of Bowral or Mittagong,” said Ray White Rural licensed agent, George Southwell.

The property sits on a private dead-end road on the Canberra side of Yass, close to the Barton and Hume Highways.

“It’s in easy distance to the first-class dining and tourism experiences the capital has to offer,” Southwell says.

The residence itself has been maintained with the retention of character features mixed with a modern, luxurious renovation. Southwell says “it is not just a house”.

“This is the complete rural lifestyle on offer with direct river access. The house is an amazing piece of local history yet completely renovated to modern standards.”

He says the property would be ideal for families, professional couples who love to entertain, or even those looking to run a bed and breakfast or wedding business. The home boasts a segregated, opulent master suite, modern kitchen, a range of living spaces, four open fireplaces and a separate, two-bedroom granny flat.

“There’s plenty of reasons to enjoy the outdoors with an in-ground trampoline, basketball and netball hoops on the tennis court, lawned areas, and gardens established over the last century,” Southwell says.
