Superbly positioned in an elevated setting on the outskirts of Ballarat, this beautiful property provides tranquil living and is only six minutes to the city’s CBD. Surrounded by serene gardens, the property has more than 40 squares of living space, with beautiful garden views from every window.

The large family/TV room has surround sound, while the master bedroom has an en suite with a corner spa and oversize frameless shower. The family bathroom also comes with a bath and separate shower, and there is a powder room for guests. With a cosy open fire in the family room and ducted central heating, the home is always comfortable.

The open plan kitchen has granite bench tops, an island bench, quality cabinetry, a built-in pantry with ample storage space, electric oven and hotplates, and elegant glass splashbacks. Double French doors in the dining room open out to a beautiful lawned pergola with movable sun shade. 

Outside there is an extra wide full length veranda and both motorised roller blinds and plantation shutters, making the house cosy in winter and cool in summer. Together with a full-sized tennis court, there is a double lockup garage with remote roller doors, a workshop, pot belly heater, and additional shed with a separate home gym-cum-studio. There’s also ample room for a tradesman’s trailer or boat.

 A cleared fenced side paddock would be ideal for horse riding or to practise your golf swing. Team this with natural flora, fauna and numerous walking trails in the area, and you have an adventure wonderland for the entire family.
