An exquisite example of classic, turn of the century architecture, seamlessly blended with a tasteful modern extension, this is a truly remarkable property in close proximity to Ballarat's blossoming CBD.
The home dates back to 1894 and was renovated and extended in 2004. The original home has three large rooms with built-in robes and original fireplaces. Easily functional as three bedrooms, guestrooms, separate lounge or a study, these rooms also have quality drapes and pelmets, along with ornate cornices and ceiling roses.
The master bedroom has built-in robes, along with a large dressing room or parents retreat, and spacious ensuite which includes a claw foot bath, along with a freestanding vanity. The family bathroom has a spa and access to the underfloor cellar.
The final area of the original house is the formal lounge, which flows through to the stunning extension. Continuing with newly refinished engineered timber floors from the entrance, the extension provides an open planned kitchen/meals/lounge area, butler's pantry, laundry and third toilet.
A pleasure to cook and entertain in, the kitchen will please the most discerning family chef, with quality appliances, masses of cupboard space and stone benchtops.
The northern aspect provides a sun filled living zone all year-round and the alfresco doors fully open to an uninterrupted indoor/outdoor summer entertaining experience. The Merbau deck is complete with built in barbecue and extends to the rear courtyard through to the auto double lock up garage.
With undeniably impressive kerb appeal, this home is bursting with period character; the original tumbled bricks, the slate roofing, pressed metal gable feature and subtle leadlight windows that tie perfectly with the brick paving and enclosed front yard.
Framed with ornamental plants, including deciduous trees to complement the streetscape, roses, magnolias and precision trimmed hedging, this is truly a picture perfect home. Your very own private inspection will be sure to impress.
