This stunning Federation home is positioned on a large 979 square metre (approx.) allotment in a blue chip location close to Ballarat Railway Station, the CBD, Lake Wendouree and the hospital precinct.
The position offers an enviable lifestyle with great cafes, restaurants and shopping options close by. The location is also close to the prestigious Ballarat and Clarendon College senior and junior campuses, as well as other primary and secondary school options.
You will immediately be attracted to the commanding street presence the property exudes, with the attractive red brick combining perfectly with the render and timber work.
The historic building has been fully refurbished and is in pristine condition externally. Inside, it has been treated to a modern renovation, leaving nothing left to do but move in and enjoy.
The current owners have cleverly retained the period features, such as high ceilings and intricate timber work, complementing them with polished spotted gum flooring and large open living spaces.
The kitchen is luxurious, with stone benchtops, a large Belfast sink, walk-in pantry, 900 millimetre oven and a cooktop. The kitchen is open plan and connects to the dining area and family room. There is also a large separate lounge at the front of the house, which includes a study nook.
The house is well laid out, with two bedrooms and a bathroom downstairs, and a third and fourth bedroom upstairs with an ensuite. One of the upstairs bedrooms has a charming office overlooking Ballarat's city skyline.
All of the bedrooms feature built-in storage, while the bathrooms, laundry and powder room have also been beautifully renovated.
You will be comfortable all year round, with gas central heating, gas log heaters and split systems throughout. The home is also serviced by a solar power system.

The unit has been designed to suit those with lower mobility and has a walk-in shower and plenty of support railing. The unit is serviced by split system heating and cooling.
Outside is a double carport, storage shed, large swim spa and beautifully landscaped garden.
This is a rare opportunity to purchase one of Ballarat's most prestigious and recognisable homes. All the work has been done, so you can simply enjoy the convenience and lifestyle this location brings. Contact the agency to arrange an inspection.
