A top location, style and comfort are all on show in this beautifully renovated home, combining the charm of yesteryear with all of today’s modern conveniences.

When entering the house via its wide hallway, it’s impossible not to admire the original leadlight windows, high ceilings (which continue throughout the home) and master bedroom, complete with ultra modern en suite.

All of the three bedrooms have ceiling fans, while the property also has a separate study and large open north-facing living area, perfect for capturing the sun during Ballarat’s winter months. Come darker days, there is decorative LED lighting throughout the house.

The bathroom is fabulous, fitted with a bath and a separate shower. The kitchen is also a must-see, with solid, one-piece concrete benches – the island bench is even heated!

All the living areas also feature heated polished concrete flooring. Heating and cooling throughout the home consists of in-slab hydronic heating at the rear, hydronic panels in bedrooms, tile and towel rail heating in the en suite and bathrooms, and reverse cycle high wall split systems in the living areas and master bedroom.

The property is conveniently located to picturesque Lake Wendouree, the city centre, popular cafes and colleges. Outside is a 2.5 car garage, together with storage for a workspace and bicycles.

A driveway beside the garage provides room for a trailer or another car.

Do not miss this rare opportunity to live in a highly sought-after part of Ballarat.
