Two Canyonleigh, Southern Highlands properties owned by Father Chris Riley's Youth Off The Streets (YOTS) charity organisation remain for sale after being passed in at recent auction.

The two 40-hectare properties were offered following the opening of a new Wollongong residential facility for homeless youth.

Raine and Horne Wollongong real estate agent Joe Casarotto has the listing on Lot 1 Tugalong Road, Canyonleigh (pictured above), which was gifted to Youth Off The Streets in 1996 by Matt and Fiona Handbury.

Lot 1 is known as Better Homes Farm, a nod to Mr Handbury's former role as publisher of Better Homes and Gardens magazine.

In 2000 they gifted a second parcel of land, Lot 2 Tugalong Road, now known as Foundation House.

Both properties include residential and teaching facilities. Lot 1, with its substantial improvements is expected to sell for more than $1.5 million while Lot 2 has a guide of $600,000-plus.
