Top of our lust list: the Yass River Road property with pool and rolling hills

This property catches your eye from the moment you drive up to the driveway, calling out for you to imagine what your life would be like living in the perfect rural setting.

Luton Properties real estate agent Miriana Cavic describes 162 Yass River Road, Yass, as "designed to impress".

“When you drive into the driveway, the first thing you notice are these big, large established trees that lead you to the property, so it’s got a beautiful, grand entrance on arrival," Miriana says.

Known as Anneslie, the property has six bedrooms, four bathrooms, an open-plan kitchen, a full-size clay tennis court, timber flooring, three living rooms, landscaping with established gardens and grass, a mineral heated pool, a wood-burning fireplace, a dam and a water tank.

“There’s a covered verandah around the whole house, and you just feel like sitting here in the afternoon or in the morning and looking at the hills," Miriana says.


River riparian pumping rights are also for sale, Miriana says, giving the new owner freedom in what they choose to do with the water.

Another feature is the self-contained studio located downstairs with a fully equipped kitchen, bedroom, study nook and large living area. It’s the perfect self-contained space for grandparents or children who need room to be themselves.

Anneslie is located less than 10 minutes from Yass and 35 minutes from Canberra, combining the best of country living and city style.

“When you’re in the kitchen, lounge room, you just look out and you see rolling hills – it’s stunning and really peaceful,” Miriana says.


The home has 10 car spaces (including spaces in the triple garage) and the surrounding land has plenty to offer to prospective owners. Roads leading to the property are sealed.

The property slopes gently towards the Yass River and is relatively flat, meaning it can be used for a wide range of activities, depending on your interests.

According to Miriana, Anneslie offers total freedom for its new owners to decide how they want to use the property, knowing they have a rural lifestyle with the best of modern creature comforts as the foundation of anything they want to do.


Prospective buyers have enquired about having animals on the property and working in Yass, Miriana says.

“If you wanted to have some livestock, you can; if you wanted to have horses, you can. It’s a really flexible lifestyle home.

“It just depends on what you want."

She says there is also an upstairs area that can be converted into a home office for those looking to work from home.

“It’s got everything you need. It’s got entertaining areas, it’s got a pool, it’s got room for kids to play, it’s near the road, close to Yass but the Canberra side of Yass.”


Anneslie could become the perfect tree change for someone looking to shake up their post-pandemic life with new challenges and new experiences, Miriana says.

Number 162 Yass River Road will be auctioned at 4.30pm this Wednesday 22 March 2023.
