Originally built circa 1868, this magnificent double fronted early Victorian home was meticulously restored in 2016, designed to maximize space and light, with all the living areas facing north.
A finalist in the 2017 City of Ballarat Heritage Awards, "Inverleigh" is by far the best example of a renovated period home currently for sale in the sought-after Ballarat Central property market.
The rebuild was exhaustive, with the refurbished front façade and two working fireplaces the only original components of the house remaining. Each piece of the front façade including the fully restored sash windows, weatherboards, cast iron lace work and grand entrance were dismantled and restored by master craftsmen under heritage guidelines.
The remainder of "Inverleigh" is a completely new build, including new electrical wiring, new plumbing, new concrete peers, new hardwood timber floors, new timber windows and doors and new weatherboards.
With a 5.5 star energy efficiency rating, the house has the modern conveniences expected in a property of this calibre, including floor, ceiling and wall insulation, central heating and air-conditioning, quality fixtures and fittings, pure wool carpet, piped surround sound, Australian made plantation shutters and an alarm system.
The chef’s kitchen has soft close drawers and stone benchtops. The master bedroom and parents retreat includes walk-in robes, while both the master ensuite and downstairs main bathroom have floor-to-ceiling tiling and luxury stone benchtops.
Outside are two separate north-facing decked entertainment areas, a double lock-up garage and a low maintenance garden.
