Set among the wide, leafy streets in sought-after Soldiers Hill and within walking distance of Ballarat Railway Station, the CBD and local cafes, this breathtaking heritage property is seamlessly and thoughtfully blended with contemporary, on-trend living.
The careful fusion of old and new is evident from the first moment you step inside. From the magnificent high soaring ceilings, to the beautiful bespoke cornices and gorgeous fireplaces, the juxtaposition that's been created is stunning.
There are three very spacious bedrooms at the front of the house, with original polished timber floors, ornate fireplaces and large timber windows.
The luxe family bathroom has been fully updated and includes a modern freestanding bath, separate shower and a heated towel rail.
Living is easy in the property, thanks to two separate living spaces. The centrepiece of the main lounge room is the stunning bay window that looks onto the front garden, while the wood combustion fire takes the edge off during Ballarat's cooler months.
The house features plenty of high quality fixtures and was recently fitted with a hydronic heating system.
The open plan kitchen and meals area has been fully renovated and reconfigured to ensure the room is drenched in natural light. The kitchen itself is gorgeous, with stone benchtops, marble feature tiles and a spacious butler's pantry. There is also the added bonus of a small study off the meals area.
To the rear of the home is the updated laundry and fourth bedroom, with a convenient ensuite to the side.
The interior's neutral colour palette will easily complement your existing furniture and decor, so you can move right in without having to make any major decorating decisions.
Ideally positioned on a spacious corner allotment, there is plenty of open space for the kids and pets to enjoy, while the gardens have been landscaped and fenced to ensure maximum privacy.
The massive double garage, double carport, undercover alfresco area and off-street parking spaces are real bonuses in this area and demonstrate how complete the property really is.
Complementing this outstanding period home is the unmatched city lifestyle Soldiers Hill provides its residents.
Go for a stroll along the tree-lined streets to the many quality cafes, take in a game of local footy, or jump on the train to Melbourne.
However you like to spend your downtime, this home has it all. This is an opportunity you don't want to miss. Call the agency today to arrange an inspection.
