Serenity at Sleepy Hollow


Facade of home

This homestead is nestled amongst lush gardens on more than 4,800sqm, while being just one kilometre from the centre of Yass.

“‘Sleepy Hollow’ is a unique, elegant residence which was originally built in 1895 and has been sympathetically renovated and extended to its current glory and offers a reflection of old-world charm and ambience,” says Maria Selleck, director and sales agent at Maria Selleck Properties.

Beautifully updated in keeping with its history, the home’s modern kitchen is a central hub with island bench and granite benchtops, overlooking the dining room with its feature stained-glass windows, allowing light to stream in.

Multiple living areas means there is space in spades for family life – both inside and out. A separate living room at the front of the home has access to the veranda, while both the formal living room/library and the family room have access to the covered entertaining deck outside, complete with a swim spa enjoying views of the garden.

“This beautiful home is ideally suited to any family who is looking for a semi-rural lifestyle in an urban area with all the modern comforts and amenities,” says Selleck.

“The property sits amid a huge 4,882sqm block of lush, mature landscaped gardens complete with a picturesque pond and bridge.  

“The park-like garden is regarded as one of the best in Yass and has been an ‘open garden’ on several occasions.”
