Set on approximately 688 square metres with glorious established gardens, this magnificent light-filled Victorian home has been adapted for modern family living, providing space and flexible zoned living in its floorplan, together with an abundance of outdoor entertaining capabilities.
Built circa 1880, this historic old manse has been restored to its former glory and now provides very light and modern accommodation.
Consisting of five spacious bedrooms (or four with a study), the master has a large built-in wardrobe and a beautiful leadlight bay window. Two of the bedrooms have double French doors leading to a wraparound veranda.
All rooms are of good proportion, with leadlight windows, deep cornices and Baltic pine polished floorboards throughout the downstairs level.
At the end of the L-shaped hallway is a bathroom with walk-in shower, a free-standing bath and double vanity with a separate powder room.
The coloured glass vestibule door leads you into the spacious formal lounge room, with a Jetmaster woodfire heater and bay window allowing the morning light to shine through. This is adjacent to the formal dining room, which also has a fireplace and an abundance of natural light.
Double French doors lead into the open plan family room, meals area and light-filled kitchen which has a huge amount of storage, timber cabinets, large stone benchtops, and a large timber island bench that means you can casually entertain while cooking.
This kitchen/meals area also opens onto the veranda, which overlooks the low maintenance gardens and sensational views during the day and night.
As you ascend the timber staircase to the second level you're greeted by the upstairs landing, which could be utilised as an open study nook or kids' play area. Upstairs also consists of two large attic-style bedrooms, which are both serviced by the upstairs bathroom.
Enjoy a glass of wine from the family room, or outside on the veranda as the sun sets on another beautiful Ballarat day.
Other features include zoned gas central heating throughout, plantation shutters to the front windows, a single garage with workshop, plus space for a further four cars on the property.
Only a short stroll to cafes, shops and restaurants, the property is also close to sporting facilities, including Llanberris Reserve, and Ballarat's CBD. Sovereign Hill is also a short walk around the corner.
With established gardens, there is literally nothing for you to do - just move in, put your feet up and enjoy the views. This magnificent family home will not last long, contact the agency for more information.
