Hidden valley with spectacular views to the Snowy Mountains and close to Wagga Wagga.

Mount Yaven is a well maintained small farm just off the highway tucked in behind the Ellerslie Nature Reserve with sweeping views to the south east taking in the breath-taking iconic Snowy Mountains.

The property is accessed a short distance along the Snowy Mountains Highway off the interstate Hume Highway that connects Sydney and Melbourne; and it is an easy 45 minute drive to Wagga Wagga, where a flight to Sydney or Melbourne is around an hour.

The rustic and charming three bedroom house built from timber milled on the property is connected to mains power and phone; it also has a well-designed composting toilet.

The small valley has good timber stock yards, a three stand shearing shed and a practical paddock system, the property allows for a small-scale farming venture and previously ran alpacas.

Outside of the valley, the bushland in the conservation area provides excellent habitat for a large suite of threatened and declining woodland birds, including stands of Mugga Ironbark which is a valuable foraging resource for the critically endangered Regent Honeyeater. This area can be seasonally grazed as per the Conservation Agreement guidelines while continuing to provide for wildlife.

Annual funding is available for conservation management actions in the Agreement area. Please contact us if you would like more information.
