Nestled at the end of a quiet court behind classic brick and iron gates, 102 Branchline Court offers an idyllic lifestyle.
This country homestead is set on around 10 acres (4.004 hectares) and offers tranquillity but is just a few minutes drive to all that Ballarat offers.
Drawing inspiration from Federation-style, the red-brick homestead has been built to the highest of standards and seamlessly mixes classic style with the best of modern living.
The home has double glazed windows, three-metre ceiling heights, and ducted refrigerated heating and cooling.
There is New Guinea Rose-Wood flooring, ornate cornices and architraves and quality window furnishings throughout.
There is space for all the family and guests, with accommodations comprising a master suite with dual walk-in robes and ensuite, four more robed bedrooms, and a dedicated office.
The extra-wide hallway creates a grand formal entranceway. It leads to the generously proportioned living spaces that incorporate formal and informal living zones, along with a children's retreat and dining spaces.
The open plan kitchen boasts granite bench-tops, a large island bench, quality stainless steel appliances and a walk-in pantry.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a well-fitted laundry and the direct access point to the oversize double garage.
Blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor living - the massively proportioned "enclosed outdoor living space" will cater for the largest of group gatherings boasting a full second kitchen and huge open fireplace - an entertaining space you can use all year round.
There is also a heated 12.4m x 4.4m in-ground pool plus a separate rumpus/games room.
The homestead is surrounded by established gardens, designed by renowned landscape architect Ian Barker, and features established trees, manicured hedges and numerous "garden rooms", along with an orchard and fenced vegetable garden.
A bore provides a secure water source to irrigate the gardens, and a separate paddock of around six acres gives you room for your horses or other animal interests.
Outside offers an abundance of extra infrastructure. A freestanding red brick garage offers more car accommodation with attic storage along with a gorgeous alfresco entertaining area complete with electric drop-down blinds and a wood-fired pizza oven.
Bordering the Dowling Forest Racecourse, this property is unarguably one of the finest lifestyle properties ever offered for sale in the Ballarat region, offering the new owners a rare opportunity to secure a fully developed acreage property - simply move in and enjoy.
