Yarrabin offers the best of both worlds by combining a fine home of Moderne architecture set in beautiful established gardens offering space and privacy.
Nestled next to the Bowral conservation area, and set at the end of a gracefully meandering long (65m) driveway, this double brick family home with influences from the art-deco era, stands proudly on 5569m2 of gently undulating landscaped gardens of park-like proportions. Mature specimens abound including a row of Bhutan Cypress, a rare mature horse chestnut that is one of only two in the Southern Highlands, a magnificent copper beech, a stunning Kanzan double flowering cherry of Japan, an unusual weeping crab-apple and a variety of other specimens. Adjecent to the swimming pool are two heritage apple trees. The serene setting also provides a haven for many species of birds and wildlife.
The architectural character of the house and the extension by Sydney based heritage architect Howard Tanner, provides an abundance of family living, entertainment and private space areas.

The garden is also significant as a pre-eminent show garden under the stewardship of previous owners, one being Tim and Keva North who were prominent members of the Australian Garden History Society. The gardens also have strong social association with the open gardens scheme and the early beginnings of the Bowral Tulip Festival in the late 50’s early 60’s. The key structural elements of the garden are reflected in its maturity, and the height of many of its trees give it landmark significance in the Southern Highlands.
