I have created list (say List1) on Central Administration Site. I would like to read the title value from that list programmatically. How can I do it? I don't want to hard code the URL of central administration site.

Also, in my code I have SPWebApplication object of Central Admin .Let me know if I can use it .

You can use your web application object in the function like below :

private string GetListTitle(SPWebApplication webApp)
        //To ensure if your web application object hosts central admin
        if (webApp.IsAdministrationWebApplication)
            SPList list = webApp.Sites[0].RootWeb.Lists["List1"];
            return list.Title;
        return string.Empty;
