Set in a tightly held and leafy location in Ballarat Central, this grand circa 1930s heritage home is simply stunning.

Packed full of character, charm and space, and set on more than 1000 square metres (approx.) of prime central land, this the ultimate in inner city Ballarat family lifestyle living.

There is plenty of space to work from home, with the large central downstairs study providing the ideal home office or studio. The study could also be used as a fifth bedroom if required.

This beautiful brick home currently has four bedrooms in total; two spacious bedrooms downstairs, both with full ensuites, and two upstairs which share the main central bathroom and feature gorgeous garden views. The third bedroom also has a balcony and there’s an attic in the upstairs space.

The striking staircase leading here is indicative if the beautiful timberwork that features throughout the house.

The formal dining, living area and kitchen are located at the rear of the property, and overlook the large deck and expansive backyard with mature gardens.

This is a serene space to relax after work and on weekends, with the low maintenance garden a beautiful place to relax in the coming springtime.

The floors are a combination of polished boards and stunning patterned carpet that is reflective of the property’s heritage.

Other stunning period details such as the ornate ceiling roses and cornices, soaring ceilings, picture rails, glass panelled doors and breathtaking bay windows complement the previously updated kitchen.

The kitchen features a tiled splashback, glass shelving to display your finest kitchenware and plenty of storage.

There is a sun-drenched living space at the rear of the property and the home is also kept warm by gas ducted heating throughout. The house has also been fitted with solar panels.

Outside, there is an oversized double carport at the front, and a separate single carport and single garage at the rear. There’s also a cubby where kids can play.

There is great scope for a substantial extension, or to renovate under the existing roof line (subject to council approval).

The stillness of this quiet tree-lined street exists in harmony with the nearby energy and activity of the Ballarat CBD.

With Sturt Street, highly sought-after colleges and hospitals only moments away, this stunning heritage home sits in one of Ballarat’s best central locations.

A private inspection of this property will not disappoint. But be quick, call the agency today to arrange a viewing.
