The beautifully manicured front yard really sets the tone for what is to come in this Mt Pleasant property. Beautiful period features abound as soon as you open the front door, with ornate cornices and high ceilings leading through to the open plan living and kitchen area, which has an impressive feature ceiling dome. 

Two of the three generous sized bedrooms at the front of the house have ceiling fans, while the master parents retreat has a split system and one of two gas log fireplaces. The second gas log fire is in the main living area keeping guests warm in the colder months while you entertain from the kitchen. The heart of the home has everything from a 900mm stainless steel cooking and dishwasher to the perfect sized butlers pantry.

There are two entertaining areas and a large undercover deck that wraps around the home, plus a separate dining area with double doors that join onto the decking area, allowing you to be able to extend the dining area for entertaining in the summer months. There are two bathrooms, one recently renovated with a large bath, vanity and shower.

The large open plan bedroom with walk-in-robe and ensuite has its own private deck that leads to the well maintained back yard. There is also a large shed with room for three cars, and a mezzanine floor that can fit a small trailer underneath and plenty of storage above. There is also room for secure off street parking.

Less that 1 kilometre to the Ballarat East Bowling Club and Sovereign Hill and less that 1.5 kilometres to the CBD, this property has it all.
