Hidden from the road on a large allotment of approximately 2.47 acres, this home will impress those who delight in a little peace and quiet, while also being just four kilometres from the heart of Ballarat.

This north-facing home was built on passive solar principles and faces within four degrees of true north to receive maximum benefit from sunlight and a leafy perspective.

The home is enveloped by magnificent gardens and sleepy woodlands, with a sweeping driveway and cleared open spaces providing plenty of room for kids to explore and play.

The home has excellent entertaining zones and expansive bedrooms, including a sundrenched master suite with walk-in robes, a luxurious ensuite and spa room.

The study has an NBN connection, while the kitchen has a 900mm stainless steel cooker, ample preparation and storage, a split system, and views of the established gardens.

The open plan design is ideal for a family while dining or relaxing by the natural gas fire. The formal lounge is comforted by an open fire and central heating, while a high pitched al fresco and vine enclosed veranda provide additional room to entertain or relax outdoors. 

Further accommodation is available to the rear of the property in “The Shack”, which has a large bedroom, kitchenette, bathroom and laundry.

There’s a double garage, which is currently set up as a games room and gym, while a double carport is positioned closer to the home.
