SOLDIERS Hill is Ballarat’s earliest planned suburb and arguably has some of the loveliest examples of period architecture in town.
One of these is this well-loved family home. On a commanding corner allotment, it has been fastidiously renovated, bringing to life its finest heritage features while incorporating the best modern design and comfort. High ceilings benefit from fresh, modern paintwork throughout.
The two front bedrooms have glorious bay windows overlooking the street, new wood surround fireplaces with tiled hearths and polished floorboards.
A new, never been used bathroom sits between the second and third bedroom. Super stylish, it has herringbone charcoal floor tiles a floating timber vanity with funky glass basin and a freestanding tub.
A large formal lounge has a bay window. Original woodwork surrounds the fireplace which has been replaced by a new version of a wood heater. Glossy tiles add a glamorous touch around the fire, while the whole lot is set off in charcoal paintwork.
The kitchen has been updated with dark timber cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. This room has been opened up to incorporate a light family living area.
Next door is a spacious, tiled laundry and storage space and beyond this is a fourth bedroom with small en suite.
An alfresco barbecue area out back gives good views of surrounding hills while a two car garage has plenty of quality storage for the car or shed enthusiast.
And what a great location with the CBD, shops, restaurants, train station, schools and theatres just a short stroll away.
