Located in the popular suburb of Mount Clear, this home takes full advantage of its elevation to deliver ample living space, together with a huge workshop, garage and storage area. The quality of this four-bedroom craftsman-built home is immediately evident, with superb formal and informal living areas, and beautifully landscaped gardens and courtyards.

A portico entrance with glazed double doors welcomes you into the entry hall with a beautifully tiled floor. To the left is a very spacious family room with open fireplace, and to the right are the formal dining and lounge rooms. The kitchen/meals/family room is an open-plan design that works so well for families. It has everything you need, including a walk-in pantry, stone bench tops, Brandt electric induction hot plates, St George stainless steel oven, Bosch stainless steel dishwasher, and a built-in coffee machine.

An elegant, Tuscan-style courtyard opens from the family room. Private and fully tiled, the courtyard is swathed in vines and has a water feature as its centrepiece.

The home has a double garage with remote and undercover walkway, so you’re always protected from the elements. Beneath the residential area there’s an air-conditioned shed and workshop area, large enough to hold a caravan, plus a fully-shelved storeroom and a walk-in safe. Access between the workshop level and house is via an internal lift. 

Close to Midvale Shopping Centre, schools, parks, walking trails and Ballarat’s CBD, this is a lifestyle choice you’ll love.
