This is a unique package comprising a house and shop with an upstairs studio. It consists of two titles on a large 655 square metre block.
The gorgeous Californian bungalow retains all the decorative period features of the early 1900s, including beautiful high ceilings, ceiling roses, decorative cornices, leadlight and stained glass.
The house has three large bedrooms (the master with built-in robes), a large elegant living room with a gas log fire and central heating throughout.
Overlooking the dining area, the country-style kitchen is blessed with stunning natural light and features stainless steel appliances, a double drawer dishwasher, gas cooking facilities, ample cupboards and a pantry.
The family-sized bathroom is decked out with beautiful timber joinery and has a shower over the bath. There's also a large timber-lined laundry with an abundance of storage and a separate toilet.
Reported to be one of Ballarat's original shops, the fabulous glass-fronted building is circa early 1900s and has had previous incarnations as a bootmakers and butcher shop. The building is ripe for renovating, to either fulfill your own desires or rent out as an investment (STCA).

Framed by a wide verandah, behind the shop's facade is a modern extension, comprising a large double garage with roller door entry and an upstairs studio/recreation room with a kitchenette, gas heating and air conditioner. Downstairs is a separate shower and toilet.
This leads out into a beautiful, professionally designed English-style garden with large shady trees and a private courtyard, spacious enough for kids and pets to play. It also has its own driveway, with parking for two cars, a garden shed and water tank.
This property would suit the astute investor or someone who would like to live and work from home.
Situated only minutes from the heart of Ballarat's CBD, and a short stroll from Ballarat Railway Station, the property is also in close proximity to major hospitals, cafes, shops, schools, the GovHub and everything the beautiful Lake Wendouree precinct has to offer.
This an opportunity not to be missed. Contact the agency today for more information or to book an inspection.
