This meticulously renovated 1920s period home boasts exceptional dimensions that effortlessly cater to every stage of family life.

Situated within the Webster Street precinct, this delightful property is within walking distance to Lake Wendouree, cafes, restaurants, and shops, along with the CBD, hospitals and Ballarat Railway Station.

Infused with natural light, the open plan house has two generous living zones, including a cosy lounge with an original fireplace, built-in cabinetry and a lovely window seat where you can watch the world go by.

The house has four exceptional bedrooms, all fitted with roman blinds over the sash windows. There are two bathrooms with custom made hardwood vanities, and premium taps and fixtures. Both bathrooms have floor to ceiling tiling, while the family bathroom has plenty of storage and a bath where you can wash the kids or soak the day away.

This home is comforted by gas central heating, a strategic placed split system and underfloor heating in the bathrooms.

The sleek kitchen/dining/family area has been superbly appointed, with a mirrored splashback, quality Miele appliances and custom-made cabinetry. There’s a skylight that allows natural light to flood the space, and in keeping with the property’s modern upgrades there’s also downlights and shutters on the windows.

The heart of the home also has ample storage and a generous stone benchtop where you can prepare meals. This family zone is generous enough to fit a six-seater dining table next to your sofa and chairs, and flows effortlessly through to a delightful north-facing alfresco and entertaining space.

A combination of decking, paving and lawn, this relaxing backyard is the perfect spot to unwind on the weekends, or hang out with your nearest and dearest.

Positioned on a 466 square metre block, the manicured landscaped gardens can be cared for easily, and there’s automatic irrigation, a water tank, bespoke custom shed, spotted gum decking and solar panels.

The laundry has ample storage, while linking perfectly with the lock-up garage and two off street parking spaces through an automatic access gate.

Completing this sophisticated home are newly polished Baltic pine floorboards, fresh modern tones and and touches of yesteryear, such as colourful leadlight windows and internal fretwork. All the while, the entire footprint is perfectly styled for today’s busy families.
