As the earliest planned suburb in Ballarat, Soldiers Hill is a significant heritage area, peppered with buildings that feature period detailing and reflect the architectural influences of the time.

Situated in the historic suburb, this elegant two or three bedroom home is surrounded by lovely gardens that complement its era and sits elevated on a 541 square metre block.

An impeccably maintained and renovated Californian bungalow, it combines modern, updated designs with a respectful blend of original period elements.

Features include a large front veranda, wide hallway, original timber flooring, decorative cornices, 12 foot ceilings, ceiling roses with period pendant lighting, beautiful leadlight windows and antique chimney pots.

There are also stylish wood slat shutters in the second bedroom, an ornate original fireplace in the main bedroom and timber wall panelling.

The property also has plenty of mod cons, including NBN and 5kw solar.

Outside is a single lock-up garage, and a decent sized backyard that provides enormous scope on which to extend/modernise, or add value in other ways. 

The home is located just moments from Ballarat’s CBD, public transport (including the train station) and schools, making it ideal for buyers of all demographics.

This is a rare opportunity to own a house in Ballarat with heritage origins and flawless updates, fronting an elegant streetscape in a desirable location.
